- To prepare the wood block for painting, use a piece of sand paper to sand down any rough edges. Paint a thin layer of gesso over the entire wood block, and set aside to dry.
- While the gesso layer is drying, cut a 2 1/2" x 5 1/4" piece of gold glitter cardstock. Cut a 2 1/8" x 5" piece of white cardstock. Draw a single line around the perimeter of the white cardstock using a black pen. Center and adhere the white cardstock to the gold glitter cardstock with hot glue.

Layer and adhere with liquid adhesive the white phrases on top of one another to create a dimensional word. Adhere the dark pink phrase on top of the white layered phrase with liquid adhesive.
- Once the gesso is dry, apply a layer of light blue acrylic paint over the entire wood block. If the wood still shows through this layer, apply a second layer of paint. Set aside to dry.

Die-cut four berry shapes out of light pink cardstock. Layer and adhere the berries to their matching counterpart on the dark greenery with liquid adhesive. Layer and adhere with liquid adhesive the dark greenery on top of the olive greenery so that the olive greenery peaks out from underneath the dark greenery.
