Instructions

BASE CARD

Cut gray cardstock to 7" x 10", and score at 5". Fold along the scoreline. Use the corner rounder punch to round all 4 corners. Cut a piece of patterned paper to 3" x 4 7/8", and round two of the corners. Mount this piece on the left of the card front.

IMAGE LAYERS

Cut dark blue cardstock to 4 7/8" x 6". Round two corners, and use the scallop punch edge punch on the opposite end. Stamp the sentiment on light blue cardstock, and cut/emboss using the Label 17 die that just fits the words. Stamp the sentiment again on a post-it note, and trim around it closely to create a mask for the words. Adhere it over the words on the label. Mount the layer on to the dark blue panel, then stamp the flourish in dark blue ink across both panels. Mount this on the card front.

FLOWER EMBELLISHMENTS

Stamp the flowers in pink on pink paper. Stamp the leaves in green ink on green paper. Use the matching dies to cut out the flowers and leaves. Use the Paper Blossoms tools to distress and shape the petals and leaves. Mount the leaves and flowers around the label on the front of the card. Thread the blue embroidery floss through the buttons, and glue the buttons in the centers of the flowers.
