Instructions: Score a 4 1/4" x 11" piece of white cardstock at 2" and 7 1/2". Fold it to create a tri-fold card. Take a 4" wide piece of white cardstock and emboss it using the die from Lattice Swirl Gateway Die and Spellbinders tan embossing mat. Trim it down, adhere it on the card front so that it leaves a 1/8" border on the outer edges.
Make the background using Sky and Pine Beyond Ink alcohol inks, Beyond Ink Yupo Paper and 99.9% isopropyl alcohol. Adhere it on a piece of white cardstock and then die cut that and a piece of white cardstock using the dies from Palace Gateway Die. Adhere the white die cut on another piece of white cardstock and inlay the negative pieces from the alcohol ink die cut in the white die cut. Die cut this piece using the largest die from the same set. Adhere this piece on the 2" flap of the card as shown.
Stamp the images from Clematis Birdhouse & Trellis Cling Stamp Set on a piece of watercolor cardstock using Jet Black Archival Ink and color them using Altenew watercolors. Die cut the images using the matching dies from Clematis Birdhouse & Trellis Die. Die cut 2-3 more pieces of white cardstock using the same dies and adhere them behind the colored pieces. Adhere them on the card front as shown. Add Heart of Gold prills to the flower centers. Add tiny drops of Ebony Black Nuvo Crystal Drops to the birds’ eyes. Add a few Dress My Craft clear water droplets around the flowers to add finishing touch.
