Let’s start by preparing our paper. We will need an A2 card base with a finished measurement of 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″. A single piece of pearlized paper with those same measurements. A piece of white cardstock that is 5-1/4″ x 4″ and another piece of white cardstock that is 4-1/2″ x 3-1/4″. We will need two die cut oval pieces, a pearlized die cut of approximately 2-1/4″ and a white die cut at 1-3/4″.
Stamp the dove in brown on a piece of scrap white cardstock. Cut out the dove and holding it with tweezers or adding a dot of glue to the end of a pencil and adhering, squeeze glossy accents onto the image. Set aside and allow to dry.
Glue the pearlized paper to the cardbase. Lay the two pieces of white cardstock, the smaller on top of the larger and center for stamping. Stamp the top left and bottom right corners, overlapping onto the larger. Stamp the flowers in lilac, purple, and plum. Stamp the leaf in green, rotating the stems toward the flowers and stamp the pussywillow in pistachio, rotating the stems toward the flowers.
Tear a piece of scrap printer paper to create a hill and lay showing the hill on the bottom portion of the white oval. Brush on green ink to create the hill. Stamp the cross on the top. Stamp a cross on the top portion of a post-it note and cut out to create a mask. Place the mask on top of the cross. Lay the other half of the printer paper on top of the hill and brush on blue for the sky, being careful not to brush away the mask.Remove the mask.
Glue larger white mat to pearlized paper. Glue white oval on top of pearlized oval. Glue oval mats to the smaller white cardstock and apply foam tape to back. Stick to larger white mat. Glue (dried) dove to white oval.
Stamp a border across the bottom of a white envelope using the same inks as above.
