How To Guide - Step 1

Use a 5 1/2" diameter circle die to cut TWO circles from construction weight, black card. 

How To Guide - Step 2

Score across ONE of the die cut circles, approx 1cm down. Put red liner tape ABOVE the score line, then adhere the second circle on top, thus creating your circle card blank. Trim a sliver off the bottom of the back piece of card, enabling your card blank to stand upright. 

How To Guide - Step 3

Having removed this decorative paper from the Creative Watercolours Paper Pack, die cut with a circle die measuring approx 5" in diameter. 

Adhere to the front of your circle card blank, then set to one side. 

How To Guide - Step 4

Cut a piece of white card bigger than the die plate, found in the WOW Blooms Collection.

Ink up stamp 1 with the Heather (florals) and Vintage Photo (foliage), spritz with water and stamp on to the white card. 

NB: When using these layering stamps, use the "heart" as a guide to position each stamp and the rest of the design will automatically line up. 

Ink up stamp 2 with the Heather (florals) and Walnut Stain (foliage), spritz and stamp over your first image. Ink up stamp 3 with Walnut Stain, spritz and stamp, then finally ink up stamp 4 with the Midnight hybrid ink and stamp in position.

How To Guide - Step 9

Adhere the detailed sentiment on top of the die cut, black mat. 

How To Guide - Step 10
