Instructions: This card measures 8 1/4”x 6 1/3” (21cm x 17cm) when completed. Make a hinged tent fold card to the above measurements. From the paper collection find the background paper with the blue and yellow hydrangeas in it, cut this a little smaller than the card base. Ink the edges of the card base and the printed paper with the sandstorm ink and inking tool. Adhere the printed paper to the card front. Die cut the fancy outer circle from the Round Window Frame die set, using the outside die and the white card. Ink the edges of this also with the sandstorm ink. Taking the fancy lace die and the printed paper cut a circle. Apply glue to the outside of the circle and dip this into the glitter. Put aside to dry. When dry, adhere both circles to the card base using a thin 3D foam tape.
Prepare all the embellishments: Taking the white card, the stamps, dies and the Nuvo mousse. (the mousse will be used as a watercolor). Stamp and die cut; x1 window and shutters, x1 bird on the branch border, x1 curved hydrangea border, x3 straight hydrangea border. Bring color to the embellishments and using the balling tools bring shape to the leaves, flowers and birds. Using the 3D foam dots adhere the window and shutters to the circle. Adhere the curved border above the window following the curve. Adhere the straight borders under the window, about 1/4” below. Adhere two borders first next to each other, the remaining border adhere on top in the center. Place the birds on the branch at the foot of the window so you will not see a gap.
Make the sentiment by stamping I’m Thinking of You on to the white card with the sepia ink, cut this to a banner. Apply glue to the edges then dip this into the glitter and set aside to dry. Make a triple bow from the organza ribbon. Adhere both the ribbon and the banner to the card front under the borders. To finish the card, apply the diamond stickles to the leaves and swirls. Apply the crystal lacquer to the birds.
