Quick Instructions for This Project -
1. Place the white card base (8.5 by 5.5 inches, folded) in an embossing folder and run it through the die cut machine. Next, take the pale green designer paper and tear a wide strip of it, then use a gold paint pen to make a gold border, where the paper is torn.
2. Take the 3 x 4-inch green card stock paper and make a dotted border, using the green GlazeTM pen. Set aside for now. Next, take a piece of white paper measuring 3 x 4 inches and stamp a border,
using the instructions and ink colors suggested on the package of
your stamp set. Trim around the stamped border and glue this piece
to the green panel you finished in the previous step.
3. Take the heart positioning template and shade the inside of the heart with laurel leaf ink. Stamp the bottom corner of the heart with some leaves, using green tea ink, and stamp around the inside of the heart with the vine stamp and laurel leaf ink. Then around the heart and the stamped images. Next, make a green dotted border around the heart and add a flower cut-out and a sentiment and it's almost ready to glue to the card base. Hold that thought just for a minute...
4. Position the ribbon across the green panel as pictured in the
photo and add the second sentiment. Now you're ready to glue the heart to the green panel! Once you've done that, glue the green panel to the card base. The last step is to add the second ribbon to the bottom of the stamped panel. A ribbon with vertical stripes works best, I think. You can find such ribbons at just about any craft store. I added a stamp on my ribbon (using the sprig from the stamp set because I couldn't resist-it's my favorite), in black ink.
