How To Guide - Step 1

Trim this decorative paper, from the Delicate Florals paper pack, to 8 x 4" (same size as your DL card blank). 

How To Guide - Step 2

Adhere to the front of your card blank, before blending around the edges with the Iced Spruce Oxide. 

How To Guide - Step 3

Place this decorative vellum sheet on top of your card blank, so the right side is flush with the card and make a mark where the open panel is, on the paper underneath. 

How To Guide - Step 4

Stamp this Poppy with the Archival, so it's coming in from the left edge and will be visible within the vellum panel. 

How To Guide - Step 5

Place the vellum sheet back in position on the card blank, make a mark and trim off the left side so there are a couple of cm's overhanging, as seen here. Pop the trimmed piece of vellum to one side, as you will need it in a minute. 

How To Guide - Step 6

Fold the vellum overhang over the left edge of the card blank and secure on the reverse with your tape runner or vellum dots. 

How To Guide - Step 7

From the vellum you set aside, tear around this floral image. You can use scissors but I like the raw look of tearing it! 

How To Guide - Step 8

Adhere along the bottom of your card, leaving the leaves and tops of the floral elements loose. 

Pop your card to one side. 

How To Guide - Step 9

Die cut the You & Me sentiment from black card. You can cut 2 or 3 and adhere together, to create a substantial 3D element. 

How To Guide - Step 10

Adhere your sentiment down the right side of the vellum panel. 

How To Guide - Step 11

Finish your card with a few sequins, as required.
