This card measures 6 ¼” X 6 ¼ “/ 16.5cm x 16.5cm. Taking the shutter card base and the Cottage Garden paper collection. Ink the edges of the card base that will be covered with the printed paper. Find the paper with 4 printed scenes. You will need 4 prints with the blue hydrangea’s in the opposite corners. (you will need two paper pads to get four) All the papers for the card base will be inked on the edges with the Grasshopper green ink when cut to size. Taking one of these prints and trim this to a little smaller than the card base. Adhere this square to the inside of the card base. Taking the three remaining paper prints, trace the ½ circle from the shutter card base with a pencil on the back side of the prints. Fussy cut the ½ circles a little smaller than the ½ circle so as the square. Adhere the ½ circles to the inside of the card base ½ circles. Also adhere to the second outer ½ circle on the outside as you will see this when the card is standing open.
Make all the embellishments for the card as so: Stamp and die cut  using the white stamping card and the listed stamp and die sets. x3 large hydrangea’s, 1x med hydrangea, x6 curved boarder, x1 bird on the branch boarder, x21 large hydrangea petals, x40 small hydrangea petals and die cut a circle using the larges size from the circle basics die set.
Color all the hydrangea’s using the Nuvo mousse- powder blue as water color and the Spectrum Noir- ocean blue ink for the petal edges. The leaves, use the Nuvo mousse-spring green as water color. For the birds use Nuvo mousse- Sea spray, pacific teal, sea spray green, Persian red, orange blush as water color.
To decorate the card: First take the sentiment stamp and the sepia ink, stamp the sentiment to the inside square of the card to the center right. Stamp about ¾  of the sentiment to the prepared circle. Aline the circle so the sentiments match and adhere with a thin 3D tape to the card base. Taking the prepared large hydrangea, adhere this to the circle. When the petals have been shaped with the 3D shaping mold and have the prills in the petal centers, adhere a double hydrangea petal next to the million word in the sentiment. Adhere the birds on the branch boarder to the card above the circle once the birds and leaves have been shaped with the balling tools.
Taking the prepared curved boarder and adhere to the ½ circles in the card base at the curved edge. For the two ½ circles on the front of the card, adhere two boarders to each ½ circle.
Make the hydrangea petals by using the 3D hydrangea mold. Using the tray apply glue to the petal centers and sprinkle the prills over the petals, put aside to dry. When dry adhere with the hot glue gun to the two large hydrangea’s and the medium hydrangea. Arrange the hydrangeas on the front ½ circles, trim away excess leaves  and adhere using the hot glue gun.To finish the card apply the diamond stickles to the petal edges, the swirls, the birds wings, tail  and head.

The collection is adorable. There is so much one can do with this.
Have fun and till next week with another card.
