Instructions for card:
To avoid having to make many passes through my Big Shot with different colored cardstock, I cut all my pieces from white -- and colored them afterward.
As you can see there are four blossoms and four sets of leaves already on the die. I used a variety of Copic markers, as well as a fine black pen, to color my die-cut pieces.
As you construct a scene on your card, you could decide to cut more of them. As you can see with my colored images, I decided I needed more leaves and blossoms. While I was at it, I also cut two strips of grass using the Spring Grass die and sponged on some green ink for texture.
I then constructed my scene. I used my Xyron X sticker maker to put adhesive on the back of the smallest pieces. I had cut two strips of grass because I wanted one strip behind the fence and one in front. As it turned out, I actually cut four more blossoms for my tree. Here is a close-up of the 3-D pieces (the butterfly, the bird and the owl). I used tiny foam pop dots to create the 3-D look for the wings of the butterfly and bird -- and larger ones to adhere all three critters to the card. I love using googlie eyes on owls, so I used them rather than the eye pieces from the die.
I then stamped the small sentiment at the top and I was finished. Here again is my card.
