Step By Step:

1.    Trim bird Bookprint paper to measure 10×20.25cm so that the birds are situated at the bottom of the panel.
2.    Swipe blue ink across the centre of the bird image and olive ink around the edge up to about half way up the card. Use a tissue to blend and to wipe away the excess.
3.    Glue centrally onto a tall kraft card.
4.    Stamp ‘with love’ onto a kraft tag. The message is in one section so stamp ‘with’ to the right hand side (so ‘love’ stamps off the edge) and ‘love to the left hand side. Ink the edges of the tag and shorten the string, tying with a knot. Mount as shown on the card front using 3D foam pads.
5.    Cut a 2.5cm slit in the spine of the card and feed the wide satin ribbon through. Bring both ends to the front of the card and tie in a large bow. Cut the ends to fish-tails to finish.
