How To Guide - Step 1

Choose two coordinating papers from your Ruby Blooms Foundation Paper pack and die cut a circle out of each, using your nesting dies, one circle being smaller than the other.  

How To Guide - Step 2

Glue the smaller one inside the larger, ensuring the bottom lies flush, as seen here, then pop to one side. 

How To Guide - Step 3

Stamp this beautiful image from the Ruby Blooms Stamp set, in the Midnight hybrid ink, on to the white card (trimmed to 7 1/2 x 5"). Add a few splats using the same ink. 

How To Guide - Step 4

Trim this beautiful foundation paper to 7 3/4 x 5 1/4". 

How To Guide - Step 5

Adhere your stamped image on to the foundation paper, then adhere your paper circle off the right hand edge, as much or as little as you wish. Trim off any overhang, so you are left with this effect.

How To Guide - Step 10

Adhere your fussy cut element, with foam pads, so it partially sits on top of the stamped design but curves around your patterned paper circles. 

How To Guide - Step 11

To finish add a few sequins on, around and tucked just under your 3D floral element.
