INSTRUCTIONS:
The finished size of this card is, 7 1/8th” x 8 ¼”  ( 22cm x 18cm )
Start by making the card base and matting: Spun Sugar distress ink, foam inking tool and the water spritzer. Taking the white card stock, cut the card front base to, 7 1/8th” x 8 ¼”  (22cm x 18cm) and the card front matting to, 5 ¾” x 7 ¼” (18.5cm x 14.5cm) Bring the Spun sugar ink onto the cards with the foam inking tool then water spritz both cards and leave to dry. Adhere the matting card to the card base using the foam dots. Taking the white cardstock and the Lacy Diamond die set, die cut this twice. Trim away the middle sections on both die cuts so you have four boarders. Ink the boarders with the Spun Sugar ink. Apply clear drying glue to the boarders then dip them into the glitter. Set aside, when dry adhere to the card base under the matting as seen in the card photo. All the stamping for the elements is done using the archival Forest Green ink. To make the diamond centerpiece, take the white card stock and the Diamonds and Lace die set. Die cut the lace frame then bring color to it by using the spun sugar ink, adhere the glitter to this frame. When dry adhere the frame to the card front matting with the 3D foam dots. Taking the Petite Pansy Frame stamp and die set. Stamp, die cut and color the diamond base. Using the Zig pens, color the pansies the same as the Cheery blossoms, 230 Pale Rose, or 046 Mid Green. You will not see this once the cherry blossoms are adhered. The colors used for the diamond base are: 096 Mid Gray, 075 Brick Beige. 230 Pale Rose, 046 Mid Green. Use the 3D Cherry Blossom Shaping Mold to bring shape to all the elements that the mold is made for. If you do not own this mold, you can use the shaping tools to bring dimension to the elements. To make the Cheery blossoms, using the stamp and die sets, Tweet Cherry Blossoms sets and the Zig pens, 230 Pale Rose, 046 Mid green to color the flowers. Make eight large blossoms, thirteen medium size blossoms and twenty-two small blossoms.
The large flower centers use three ½ stamens, for the smaller use one-½ stamen. Taking the old paintbrush and clear drying glue, apply a little glue to the flower petals then dip into the glitter. Put aside to dry, shake the excess glitter off then the flowers are ready to use. For the leaves stamp and die cut 7 leaf sets, use the Zig pens: 046 Mid Green, 043 Olive Green to bring color to the leaves.
To make the birds, birdhouse and hanging sign: Taking the white cardstock, stamp and die from the Cheery Blossom Retreat and Tweet Cherry Blossom stamp and die sets. Stamp and die cut five birds, one birdhouse and one sign. The Zig pen colors used for these are; 036 Light Blue, 062 Dark Brown, 075 Brick Beige, 230 Pale Rose, 046 Mid green, 043 Olive Green. To put the card and elements together: Adhere the diamond base to the lace frame by using the 3D foam dots. Adhere all the flowers and leaves in their place by using the hot glue gun. Once all the flowers are adhered in place trim away any of the original pansy stamping if showing under the Blossom flowers. Trim the leaves away to make room for the Cherry blossom leaves. Adhere these too with the hot glue gun. Adhere the hanging sign and the hanging birdcage in its place using the 3D foam dots. Cluster the flowers and birds on the sign and birdhouse. Add flower and leaf clusters to the lace boarders and the right lower matting under the birdhouse.
