Instructions: 

Cut a piece of white cardstock 10” x 7”, score at 5” along the long side and fold to create a base card of 5” x 7”. Cut a 7/8” and adhere over the gold cardstock. Cut a piece of patterned paper with the window image 4 3/4” x 3/4″ and adhere to the front of the card. Cut a piece of purple paper 4 13/16” x 6 13/16”. Cut a piece of light green patterned paper 4 3/4” x 6 3/4″ and adhere over the purple paper. Using the inner decorative frame die from the HCD2-7307 Royal Elegance Frame Die, cut the opening out of the paper. Cut a piece of clear cardstock 4 3/4″ x 6 3/4″ and adhere behind the paper. Adhere to the front of the card using two layers of heavy cardboard. Die cut the frame using the frame die from the HCD2-7307 Royal Elegance Frame Die out of gold cardstock and adhere to the inside of the aperture over the clear cardstock as shown.

Stamp the wisteria images from the HCPC-3912 Cascading Wisteria Cling Stamp Set in Jet Black ink on Iris cardstock. Colour with Zig Clean Colour Brush Markers and die cut with the coordinating dies. Shape lightly, add Crystal Clear with Dries Clear glue on a dry sponge and adhere to the top of the frame with foam squares.

Stamp the bird images from the HCPC3866 Tweet Cherry Blossom Cling Stamp Set in Jet Black ink on Iris cardstock. Colour with Zig Clean Colour Brush Markers and die cut with the coordinating die. Shape using the coordinating mold and add Crystal Clear glitter using Dries Clear glue on a dry sponge. Adhere to the top of the frame over the cascading wisterias as shown with foam tape.

Stamp the wisteria flower images from the HCPC-3911 Wisteria Petals Cling Stamp Set in Violet ink. Colour some of images with Magenta Hue ink, the other images with Pretty Petunia ink and then the centres of the flowers with Violet ink and die cut with the coordinating die. Colour the backs of the pink flowers with Magenta Hue ink and the purple flowers with Pretty Petunia ink and then shape using the groove golf tools. Assemble with two layers per flower and then add Crystal Clear glitter using Dries Clear glue on a damp sponge. Adhere over the flowers on the large bird image and then add Lettuce Entertain You Prills to the centres of the flowers.

To finish, add Crystal Clear glitter to the card front with Dries Clear glue on a dry sponge.

Happy Crafting
