Cut the base card from the textured card stock, measuring 5 1/2" x 11", score at 5 1/2", and fold. Place the scalloped nestabilities die just above the fold, and cut/emboss to create the shaped card. Cut the polka-dot paper square measuring 4 7/8" x 4 7/8" and round all 4 corners. Mount on the front of the card. Cut/emboss an eyelet square from plain blue card stock measuring 4 1/2" x 4 1/2". Mount on the front of the card.
Stamp the image in black ink on a white card stock square measuring 3" x 3". Round all 4 corners. Color the image with watercolor crayons. I use a traditional water color brush - very small - with a little bit of water and a paper towel to blot the brush or the image when I think there's too much moisture.
After your image is dry, mount it onto the the eyelet square on the card front. Finish with tiny adhesive gems.
