Instructions: This card measures 8 1/2” x 6 3/4” (21cm x 17.5cm) when completed. Taking the white card stock, make a tent fold card by cutting 2 of the above measurements. Scoring from the top the width of one of the cards, this will be the back part of the card base. Adhere the double side tape to this area. When the card is completed remove the protection tape and adhere both card pieces together. You can make a larger card this way without wasting a lot of card stock.

Find the sheet number 6A in the paper collection and cut this a little smaller than the card front. Taking the Pale fig ink and the inking tool, ink all the edges of the card front and the card base. Adhere the card front to the card base using 3D foam tape.

Taking the ribbon cut enough to wrap around the card front at the foot. Adhere with double sided tape. Make a triple bow and adhere this with the hot glue gun to the right of the card.

Taking the white card stock, Library green ink, the stamp and dies needed to make all the elements for this card, proceed by making both the birds, 1x the branch with lots of wisteria 1x the branch without wisteria, 2x the branch with 3 wisteria. Bring colour to the elements then die cut and shape them using the flower shaping tools. Trim the branches as needed with the fussy cutting scissors to fit the arrangement across the top of the card.

Make the sentiment by stamping it twice using the sepia ink on white cardstock. Trim the sentiment in two then make them both into banners. Ink the banners with the Pale fig ink. Adhere the birds in place trimming the flowers where needed and adhering them as fillers. Adhere the bird facing to the right to the left of the card on top of the ribbon. Give the banners a curl then adhere them under the bird, adhere the banner points so the curve stays in the banner.

To finish the card, apply the crystal clear to the birds and the diamond stickles to the flower centres and wisteria bunches.
