Step 1 Cut a 10"x7" strip of your blue cardstock sheet. Score this down the middle and fold to create a 5"x7" card. Lay this in front of you with the fold at the top.
Step 2 Select three of your favorite prints from the Violet Leaf mat stack. Adhere them to the front of the card as shown, staggering them so that the two bottom pieces are visible on top.
Step 3 Draw a 1½"x4" window in the center of the card using your ruler and pencil to measure, ensuring that the lines are straight. Use the craft knife to cut out window, putting a self-healing mat underneath to protect your crafting surface.
Step 4 Select an additional print from the stack and cut it to 2"x4½". Add your sentiment (either the vellum quote or the alphabet letters) to the center and adhere this inside the front flap of the card in the window.
Step 5 Add three sets of three flowers each to the front of your card, using a brad to hold each set in place.
Step 6 Write your personalized message inside and deliver to the lucky recipient.
