With water color paper, cut the fancy frame and oval. Punch a few flowers from the off cuts of water color paper. Using the image from HCPC 3639 Love Bird Hangout and Stamp Positioner Kit, stamp both die cuts so they fall on top of each other. Stamp and die cut single flowers using the HCPC 3641 Heartthrob PreCut Set and HCD 755 Romantique garden die. Color the flowers and stamped image.

Tape a layer of seam-binding ribbon along the bottom of frame, see photo of card. With a length of seam-binding ribbon, draw a strand from the center of one end. Pulling the thread to gather the ribbon. Do this till you get the length you want for the card. Cut and place a thin strip of double sided tape over the center of flat ribbon. Place the gathered ribbon over this so a little of the flat ribbon shows in the back ground. Make a triple bow and place in center.

 Ball and shape the loose flowers, back them with double dots. Attach these in their place, matching the size of flower. Dampen the punched flowers with the water spritzer, then using a fine tipped balling tool and mat, press down in the center. When dry this will become hard. Apply a little glue to the back, using tweezers attach to small flowers on the colored image. When all is glued down and dry in its place, you can then apply the Stickles and 3-D Crystal Lacquer on the birds, flowers and words.
