Violet cardstock, double sided tape,  molding paste, palate knife, glue gun, pearls, Gala Glitz - Gold, heat tool, Detail Black Embossing Powder, Versamark Embossing Ink, Copic Alcohol Ink Markers    (V000, V00, B01, V05, B09, YG 61, YG63, YB67),  Vintage Photo Distress Ink Pad, X-Press it Blending Cardstock. 

Create a top fold card base by cutting heavy white cardstock at 5 `/2 inches x 11 inches.  Score and fold  at 5 1/2 inches.   Cut a dark violet cardstock at 5 1/4 inches x 5 `/4 inches.  Adhere the layers with double sided tape.   Select the designer paper with the little bird from the Lush Lilac Paper Collection.   Position the paper to allow the birds to be in in upper right hand side after cutting at 5 x 5 inches. Sponge the corners of the designer paper with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.

Stamp three of the lilac clusters from the Lush Lilac & Umbrella Spray Cling Stamp Set on X-Press It Blending Cardstock or any Copic compatible paper. I used Memento Elderberry ink. The images were colored with Copic Alcohol Ink Markers (V000, V00, B01, V05, B09, YG 61, YG63, YB67).   I  chose Elderberry to stamp the image because the color worked well for the lilacs and allowed the greenery to have shadow areas when the green marker was placed on top.   The images were die cut with the coordinating die.  The images were lightly shaped with the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit and molding paste was applied on the underside to allow it to maintain the shape. Allow to dray overnight.   Ranger Clear Crackle Paint was applied and the images were sprinkled with Frosting Powder and heat set.  the image was lightly sponged in highlight areas with a small amount of Wisteria ColorBox Chalk Ink.  

Gala Gliz was applied the designer paper using Designer Adhesive -Clear.   I used gold Gala Glitz  but white or silver would be beautiful.  While it is drying, die cut the birdcage from  the Sweet Scroll & Notes Die Set.    Apply pearls to the birdcage and adhere the birdcage over the Gala Glitz using Designer Dries Clear Adhesive.  Adhere the lilac to the left side of the card. I used a glue gun for extra strength.

Stamp the sentiment from the Sweet Scroll & Notes Cling Stamp Set with Versamark.  Emboss with Detail Black embossing powder and heat set.  Die cut using the heart and eyelet heart from the Eyelet Heart Die Set (Heartfelt Love Collection).   Adhere to the lower right corner of the birdcage using mounting tape.
