Additional Supplies

  • Cardstock – White
  • Cardstock – Cream
  • Painter’s Tape (blue)
  • Scor-Tape – 1/8″
  • Lawn fawn Happy Everything Collection
  • Anti-static Bag (cornstarch)
  • Heat Tool


First, let’s cut the paper. You’ll need to create an A2 card base that is 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″. To do that, cut a piece of 8-1/2″ x 11″ cream cardstock in half to get 2 pieces of 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ paper. Now, using a scoring board score one of the sheets in half, then do the same for the other piece and now you have 2, A2 size card base.

You will also need a single sheet of white cardstock that is 5-1/4″ x 4″. You’ll also need a small strip of white cardstock that is 1″ x 4-1/4″.

Attach painter’s tape to the center of the single sheet of white cardstock. Stamp the stamps each in it’s own green ink along the border of the tape, making sure not to leave any gaps or it won’t look like a border.

Once you have your border stamped gently remove the tape. Apply 1/8″ double-sided tape to the top and bottom of the border. Allow the ink to dry – I would give it 15 minutes or more.

Rub the anti-static bag over the border area. Apply the sentiment to a stamp mount and ink it with VersaMark and stamp in the center of the border. Remove the tape release paper and sprinkle embossing powder. Melt with heat tool.

Apply stamped paper to cream card base.
