Step 1) Using the largest two Stitched Rectangle dies, cut two panels of Oatmeal cardstock. Using the MISTI, start the stamping with the branch in Dark Chocolate ink. Next, stamp the feet using Slate ink. Now for the body of the bird. This is a layering stamp set, and it's easy to know which to stamp first. The first layer to stamp is the body in Momento Bahama Bay ink. The second layer is in Lawn Fawn's Fish Tank ink. The third layer is in Momento Danube Blue and the fourth and final layer is in Lawn Fawn Deep Sea. If you get any spotty stamping, just reink and stamp again (this is where the MISTI comes in handy).
Step 2) Using an ink blending tool, add Squeezed Lemonade over the top right corner of each panel and Tumbled Glass around the rest of the panel. Add Blueprint Sketch around the Tumbled Glass, just along the edges for some depth.
Step 3) Add scor-tape to the back side of the larger inked panel and adhere to a card base. Cut a piece of fun foam slightly smaller than the bird panel and add scor-tape to both sides. Remove backing paper from one side and adhere to the back side of the bird panel. Remove backing tape and centering the bird panel, adhere to the larger inked panel.
Step 4) Cut branch from wood veneer paper using the branch die. Adhere over the stamped branch using liquid glue. Pull out three gold sequins of varying sizes and two blue sequins of different size. Adhere with liquid glue in the top left corner. Our card is complete!
