Instructions: Click here to view a larger photo of this layout. Light green cardstock is the 12 x 12” base. Cut strips of the striped patterned paper that are 1.5 x 11.75”, and then miter the corners. Adhere these pieces to the 12 x 12” base. Cut the white cardstock to 10 x 10” and distress the edges. Adhere to the layout. Take the triangles that are left over from the corners and adhere to the corners of the white cardstock. Cut a purple patterned hexagon that is about 8” at the widest points. Adhere this to the middle of the layout.
Die cut 1 birdcage from the Luxe Gold Cardstock. Stamp and die cut 8 of the branch images using brown StazOn Ink (Timber Brown). Stamp and die cut 2 of the 3 flower clusters and 5 of the 2 flower clusters onto white cardstock using the same brown ink. Add color to all of the leaves on all of the images using green ink (Close To My Heart- Fern) and daubers. Add color to the branches using Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush (Mustard). Add color to the flowers using Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush (Light Pink, Violet, Cobalt Blue, Light Violet). Shape all of the leaves and flowers.
Adhere the branches around the hexagon using foam adhesive pieces, creating the hexagon shape with the natural curves of the branches. Add the 3 flower clusters to the top and the bottom of the wreath. Add the 2 flower clusters to the sides.
Mat the cropped 4 x 6" photo in white cardstock. Adhere the bird cage to the middle of the wreath and adhere the matted photo using foam adhesive to the left of the bird cage. Find and cut out the “Cherish the Moment” sentiment and adhere to the right of the matted photo. Add pieces of the remaining flower cluster around the sentiment. Add pearls to the corners of the layout.
