How To Guide - Step 9

Cut off a "drop" from the Edith Elephant Washi Tape and Die Collection. Carefully peel off the adhesive backing sheet, as you adhere the washi tape to an A4 sheet of white card. Line up one of the coordinating dies over the washi, secure in place with low tack tape and run it through your die cutting machine. Line up the second die, secure in place and die cut. Adhere the little die cut blue heart to the front of the perfume bottle, for added interest. Pop the remaining die cut elements in a tub, for future use. 

Choose a sheet of decorative paper, from the Oxford Blue Collection and cut to 6 1/2" square, setting any remaining paper to one side.

Adhere the decorative paper to your 7 x 7" white card blank, then adhere the embossed ornate frame on top.

Stamp the sentiment in Midnight, on to a piece of white card. Cut to size then mat on to the decorative paper you set aside earlier, and cut to size. 

Adhere to the top left of your card, using foam pads, to finish.
