Instructions: This card size is 19.3cm x 15.2cm. Cut the card base with the green card stock 19.3cm x 30.4cm. Make a fold at 15.2cm. Find in the Birds & Blooms Collection Paper Pad the layout print with the frames. Cut away the outer blue print edge leaving the corners intact, put aside. Cut out the large pink frame and one of the pink small frames. With the distressing tool, distress all the edges of the frames.

Cut the lace print from the same design paper. This is inked on the edges with the black Cats Eye ink and later attached with double sided tape or clear drying glue to the base card.

Back to the blue printed strips, cut, tear to fit as a background patchwork frame for the pink printed frames. When happy with the lengths and patching of the strips, distress with the distressing tool and ink the edges with the black cats eye ink. Arrange, stack and glue down all papers using Double Dots. Attach a length of blue organza ribbon to the card, on and to the left of the pink frame. Make a separate triple bow from ribbon. Using a glue dot, attach the triple bow on top of the already placed ribbon at the left top corner of the pink frame.

With black Archival permanent ink and watercolor paper, stamp the images from HCPC 3644HCPC 3647 and HCPS 3645 Cling stamp sets  (hydrangeas border and single image Stamp x 2 each). Color these images with the Derwent water color pencils then, use the matching Birds and Blooms Die and
 Leafy Branch Die to die cut. Sorry you will have to fussy cut the Hydrangea stamp images by hand. Ball and shape all finished images with the Paper Blossoms Tool Kit and
 Paper Blossoms Molding Mat. Place and attach both boarders of hydrangeas and birds with Double Dots.

Using the Art Insitute Glue - dries clear, tuck the single hydrangeas and a few leaf images under the right side of the small pink frame. Look to the photo if you need help for the placement. Do the same for the leaves on the left side of the frame.

For the sentiment select the "Missing You" stamp from the HCPS 3354 Set. Stamp the image with black Archival ink on the right side, under the hydrangea boarder.

To finish the card, add Stickles Glitter Glue to the hydrangeas.

Until next time! Have an inky scrappy day!
