How To Guide - Step 1

You will need this coordinating topper and envelope, from the Songbirds Noir Collection. 

Fold along the pre-scored lines and adhere the flaps of the envelope with a little wet glue. 

How To Guide - Step 2

Stamp this sentiment from the Special Wishes Collection, in the Cotton pigment ink, on to your Songbirds topper.

NB: Pigment ink is very slow drying and will smudge, so give it a quick blast with your heat tool.  

How To Guide - Step 3

Ink up the floral stamp, from the same collection, with the Cotton ink and stamp around the top right of your sentiment, again blasting the ink dry with your heat tool. 

How To Guide - Step 4

Adhere on to your white card blank and pop to one side with the envelope. 

How To Guide - Step 5

Trim this gorgeous sheet of paper, from the 12 x 12" A Winter Story Paper Pack, to 7 1/4 x 4 3/4".

Adhere to your landscape kraft cardstock, trimmed to 7 1/2 x 5", then pop to one side.   

How To Guide - Step 6

Take this utterly gorgeous vellum sheet from the A Winter Story Vellum Pack. 

How To Guide - Step 7

Tear off a panel roughly 5 3/4" in length and the width of your choice. 

How To Guide - Step 8

Place vertically, towards the left side of your patterned paper, tuck the top and bottom edges over the card and secure on the reverse with double-sided adhesive tape. 

How To Guide - Step 9

Adhere this on to your black, landscape card blank. 

How To Guide - Step 10

Use a circle die, to cut one of the sentiment toppers, from the 6 x 6" A Winter Story Embellishment Pack. 

How To Guide - Step 11

Pop a little glue down the centre of the topper only and adhere to the vellum panel, ensuring the panel is loose and your card can be slipped underneath. 

How To Guide - Step 12

Use your Stickles to add a touch of sparkle and glitter to your printed artwork.

How To Guide - Step 13

Pop your Songbird "gift" card inside the coordinating envelope and, once the glitter is dry, you can slide it under the vellum panel, to send to the recipient.
