Designer Tip: I like to use stencil tape to mask off the areas that I am not coloring with ink. This keeps things nice and clean too.



  1. Place the card fold at the top. Cover the card with green pearlescent cardstock. Cut a 6 ¼"x4 ½" rectangle of pearlescent silver. Tape the template in place to prevent slipping and use the sponge to apply sweet plum along the branch and small birdcage. Apply bamboo leaves to the leaves and rhubarb to the birds.
  2. Remove the template and wipe clean. Reposition with the medium cage at the end of the branch. Stencil the cage with a combination of bamboo and plum. Color the bird with rhubarb.
  3. Mat the silver cardstock with purple, leaving an 1/8" border, and glue to the card front. Tie a bow with pink ribbon and attach with a Zot to the upper right of the card front.
  4. Apply black StazOn® to the silver Dazzles( greeting while still on the backing sheet. This gives the sticker an antique silver look. Let dry for a few minutes and then remove and apply to the card.
