Instructions: The ready top fold card from white card stock measures 6′ by 7 1/2″. To create the top panel, choose a green color paper from the designer paper collection and cut 2 pieces measuring 2″ by 5″ and a scienic paper measuring 2 1/2″ by 5″. Layer this paper using foam tapes keeping one piece of green pattern paper on top and the other on the bottom side as shown in the picture. Layer the complete panel on white cardstock making a border of 1/16″ of an inch on all the four sides.

Cut an oval frame from a white smooth white cardstock by nesting outer 2 dies from Eyelet Oval and Basic Large Die. Glue the frame as shown by adding dimensions using foam dots. Next, glue the white die cuts from Petite Pocket Accents Die, covering the frame as shown in the picture.

Stamp the images from Cherry Blossom Retreat Cling Stamp Set with black archival ink on white cardstock and color them using Zig Clean Clear Markers. Next, cut the painted images using their coordinating dies. Stacjk an extra die cut for extra strength.

For Vellum Cherry Blossoms, stamp the florals from Tweet Cherry Blossoms Die with frosting white color box ink on vellum sheet and heat emboss it using white heat embossing powder. Next die cut the flowers and color them using distress oxides., Spiced Marmalade and Seedless Preserves. Shape them on the needle tool, glue 2 flowers os same size to form a complete flower. and add flower centers. Stamp the leafy vines from Classic Rose Stamp Set with Olive Green Archival ink and cut them using its coordinating die. Color them using leaf green and Olive green and shape them using Rose Shaping Mold.

Once all the elements are ready, assemble the card as shown and finish the card by adding a sentiment from the paper collection and by adding Rajni Chawla’s Crystal clear glitter to the flowers and leaves using an adhesive that dries clear. Also add die cut birds from the paper collection as an extra accent.
