How To Guide - Step 1

Remove this beautiful floral frame paper from the Winter Story 6 x 6" Embellishment pack. If you are using a smaller card blank, then trim down to size, as required. 

NB: You can use smaller card blanks and for our USA crafters, you can adapt your exclusive HSN collection, as necessary, to fit the sizes you are working with. 

How To Guide - Step 2

Fussy cut the Robin and a variety of floral elements, from this sheet found in the Embellishment pack. 

How To Guide - Step 3

Use a 2" circle die to create a "Moon" from one of the elegant vellum sheets, in the Winter Story Vellum Pack. 

How To Guide - Step 4

Mould and shape your cut-out elements with your fingers, before adhering around the bottom right of your floral frame. Use a combination of wet glue and foam pads, to create depth and dimension to your 3D layout. 

NB: Leave the top of the Robin free from glue, so you can slide the "Moon" behind it. 

How To Guide - Step 5

Using your tape runner, secure the vellum "Moon" behind, so the Robin emerges from the floral display, against the backdrop of the Moon. 

How To Guide - Step 6

Trim this gorgeous teal paper, from the All Surfaces Paper Pack,  to 6 1/4" square (if you're working on a smaller card, then trim 1/4" bigger than the size of your floral wreath paper).

Stamp your chosen sentiment with the Midnight ink, in the bottom right corner of your artwork.
