  1. Die-cut the Lantern Box out of music patterned paper. Cut off one panel from the Lantern Box. Using a sponge applicator, sponge Distress Ink along the edges of the panel. Edge the panel with an embossing pen, and dust with copper embossing powder. Tap off excess, and use a heat tool to melt the powder.
  2. Cut two acetate panels that are slightly smaller than the bottom portion of the Lantern Box panel. Attach double-sided tape along the outside edges of the window portion on the back side of the Lantern Box panel, and adhere one acetate panel. Attach adhesive foam tape along the same edges of the acetate panel, and sprinkle gold confetti onto the panel. Adhere the second acetate panel to the adhesive foam tape to create a shaker.
  3. Tie gold thread onto a heart charm, and glue the charm to the top of the Lantern Box panel. Set the Lantern Box panel aside.
  4. Using clear ink, stamp a Bird Crazy image onto white cardstock. Dust the image with copper embossing powder. Tap off excess, and use a heat tool to melt the powder. Using a waterbrush and watercolor pencils, paint the image as desired. Align the corresponding Framelits die over the stamped image, and die-cut. For ease of use, we recommend using the Magnetic Platform to hold the Framelits die in place while the shape is being cut.
  5. Die-cut the Cherish phrase from the Handwritten Love set out of blue and white cardstock. Adhere the blue Cherish phrase to the white Cherish phrase, slightly offsetting the images. Set aside.
  6. Cut a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" piece of kraft cardstock. Emboss with the Lace embossing folder. Lightly sponge Distress Ink over the Lace embossed kraft cardstock. Cut a 4 3/8" x 5 5/8" piece of white cardstock. Adhere the Lace embossed kraft cardstock to the white cardstock using double-side tape.
  7. Cut a 6 1/4" x 10" piece of burlap cardstock, and fold in half to create a top-folded card base. Wrap a length of twine around the fold, tie into a knot and trim off the excess twine. Adhere the layered Lace embossed kraft and white cardstock to the card front.
  8. Cut a 3/4" x 4 1/4" strip and a 1/2" x 5 1/2" strip of blue cardstock. Adhere the two strips on the left and bottom of the card front with adhesive foam tape. Adhere the Lantern Box panel and the Bird Crazy image to the card front with adhesive foam tape.
  9. Adhere the Cherish phrase to the upper right side of the card front.
  10. Ink the edges of text stickers with Distress Ink. Using adhesive foam tape, adhere the text stickers to the blue strip on the left side of the card front. Adhere two small feathers to the bottom left corner of the card front.
