Instructions

Step 1
Select three prints from the Forever and Always Stack and one sheet of pink cardstock from the Silky Smooth Brights Stack.

Step 2
Cut two pieces measuring 7.6 cm x 20.3 cm (3"x8") and 20.3 cm x 20.3 cm (8"x8") from the pink solid sheet. Put the larger piece in front of you and set the smaller strip aside for later. Score down the middle of the larger section and fold it in half to create a 10.2 cm x 20.3 cm (4"x8") card.

Step 3
Lay the card in front of you with the fold poking up like a tent. Take your pencil and ruler and make one mark 5.1 cm (2") down the fold and another mark 12.7 cm (5") down the right side (7.6 cm (3") up from the bottom). Connect these two marks with a line using your ruler. Using the image as a reference, cut down the fold and across the line to create the front section of the card.

Step 4
Take your first print from the Forever and Always Stack™ and cut a strip measuring 10.2 cm x 20.3 cm (4"x8"). Adhere this to the front section of the card, cutting off the excess to match the line made in Step 3.

Step 5
Take the next two prints from the Forever and Always Stack™. Cut one strip from each piece measuring 8.9 cm x 20.3 cm (3½"x8"). Turn the first strip over and make a mark 2.5 cm (1") down the left side and 5.1 cm (2") down the right side. Connect these two marks with a pencil line and cut off the small area above. Turn this back over and apply adhesive around the remaining three edges to create a pocket. Adhere the pocket directly to your remaining strip, then adhere this grouping to the inside back section of the card.

Step 6
Take your remaining solid strip and round each corner. Punch two holes in the top and tie a section of the white ribbon in place. Insert this into the pocket of your card.

Step 7
Embellish the front of the card with the white and black lace ribbon. Cut out sections of the prints to adhere to the inside of the card, and add rhinestones where desired.
