BASE CARD

Cut a piece of yellow card stock measuring 5 /12" x 11", score it at 5 1/2", and fold.

MAT LAYER

Cut a piece of green card stock measuring 5" x 5", and a piece of patterned paper measuring 4 1/2" x 4". Mount the patterned paper on the green mat so that when you place it on the card, the green mat will be centered, and the patterned mat will reach the left side of the card. Mount a strip of ribbon vertically along the left side of the mat using double-sided tape, with a twist in the ribbon where you will adhere the bow. Tie a bow of matching ribbon, and use glue dots and Zip Dry glue to mount it on the twist in the ribbon.

IMAGE

Using StazOn ink, stamp the image on white card stock measuring 3 1/2" x 3 3/4". Color with colored pencils. Mount on the card front so that the image panel is centered over the patterned paper, and reaches the right side of the card.
