This hinged tent fold card measures 16.6 cm x 16.6 cm
Make a hinged card base from the above measurements. From the paper pad chose a sheet of paper and cut to 15.8 cm x 15.8 cm for the matting. Cut from the card stock for the card embossed front 15 cm x 15 cm. 
Using the woodland embossing folder, apply the walnut stain to the raised bark part of the folder. Carefully place the cardstock in the folder, close and hold firmly so it will not move, run it through the machine to emboss. Take out of folder. Leave to dry so the ink will not smudge.
(The card stock has a pearl layer so it will take time to set and dry.) 
Stamp the sentiment, owls and the flower part of the birdcage. Apply colour to the owls and the flowers. Die cut the heart x 5 and the owls x 4. Adhere all together to make chipboard. 

Using the stamp positioner, stamp the owl image so you will get the hearts above the heart chipboard frame when applied. Adhere the heart chipboard to the card front. Place and adhere one of the heart centers in the chipboard frame.

Adhere with foam tape/double dots and glue the owls across the heart. Fussy cut the flowers so they will fit in and around the bottom of the heart point. 

Make a double triple bow from the ribbon and adhere to the side of the heart with a glue dot. Tuck under the ribbon and adhere the sentiment with a double dot. 

Add a flower cluster to the corners and under the sentiment. 

Fussy cut the stamped image to fit the inside of the heart and for around the out side of the heart point.

When all is dry and secure, add the Star-dust stickles to the heart frame. Flower centers and the owls. Apply the red stickles to the hearts. a shame you can not see the shimmer in the paper so well. So hard to get this on camera....but it is there.
