Die cut with the coordinating dies. Colour the back of the flowers with Pink Peony ink and shape using the coordinating mold. When dry add Crystal Clear glitter using Dries Clear glue on a damp sponge. Add Coral Seas Prills to the centres and then add to the branch and to the birdhouse and to the base of the decorative die over the leaves.

Stamp the bird images from the HCPC-3866 Tweet Cherry Blossoms 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 then adhere above the flowers at the top of the card as shown.
