only colored the birds on the second image.

Snip (2) two small feathers to be slid into the slit along the wings for each bird.

Snip (3) three of the long feathers per tail for the birds.

Glue the (2) two feathers of the wings into place.

Glue three feathers in place per tail and let dry.

Apply small drops of Nuvo® Crystal Glace on random berries of the card front and the birds' eyes. Let Dry.
