 Hi Everyone,

Instructions

I've made a card like this before so will link the video tutorial below if you need to see what I mean or how I made it.

On the long side, score the bermuda bay card stock at 3", 4 1/2", 6" and 7 1/2".

Fold on the 6" score only and put the fold to the top of the scoreboard with the 7 1/2" score visible on the top and make pencil marks at: 3/4", 2", 2 1/2", 3 3/4", 4 1/4" and 5 1/2".

Fold on the 7 1/2" score and put the shorter end underneath so you can see the pencil marks that you made along the 6" score line. Mark with a pencil at: 1/2", 1 3/4", 2 1/4", 3 1/2", 4" and 5 1/4".

Open out and join the pencil marks together with a ruler, this will make the marks for you to cut to make the blocks.

Fold again on the 6" score line and cut up the pencil marks to the 7 1/2" score.

Flip over and fold and burnish from the 3" (mountain), 4 1/2" (valley), 6" (mountain). With the block sections, the larger ones need to pop out and the thinner ones to go back, this forms like a square section in the card.

Now decorate all the different sections, lay down the basic white first and then add the dsp on top making sure that you leave a small border all the way around each piece.

Stamp the sentiment on the scrap of basic white using bermuda bay ink and then die cut, cut the next size up in the bermuda bay for the matting layer and adhere them together.

I had some small leaf die cuts on my desk (these are from the Perennial Petals) but you could use any others that you have.

Add to the sentiment mat to the card front using dimensionals.

Punch out 6 flowers with the small bloom punch and shape them in the palm of your hand. Adhere them to the sentiment mat and the front and back panels of the card as shown. Tuck in the leaves underneath the petals and add a rhinestone to the centre of each flower.

Add the remaining basic white section to the back of the card to write your message.
