The first thing that we will do is prepare our paper. We need an A2 base
in cream cardstock. So, to make the base cut an 8-1/2″ x 11″ piece of
cardstock in the middle at the 5-1/2″ mark on the long side. Then take
one of those pieces and place on a paper scoring board and score in the
middle on the long edge at 4-1/4″. Now, you have a base!
Now, cut a piece of blue-grey paper to 5-1/4″ x 4″ and emboss with your favorite embossing folder.
Now die cut:
- 4 of the larger wavy squares of blue-gray cardstock
- 4 of the one step smaller wavy squares in cream cardstock
- 1 of the circles in blue-gray cardstock
- 1 of the one step smaller circles in cream cardstock
- 1 of the smallest banner in cream cardstock
Mount the, “Miss You” stamp and ink it nautical blue. Stamp it at the beginning and end of the banner die cut.
Stamp the Mini Basket in rich cocoa in the center of the cream circle die cut. Stamp all of the squares by stamping the Bitty Flower in rosebud in groups of three – once and then twice without re-inking for a variation in color. Stamp the same flower inside the Mini Basket and three times in the center of the banner die cut. Stamp the same flower again as before, but this time suing nautical blue ink. Stamp the Tiny Leaf in pear tart on all of the squares, inside the basket, and around the flower grouping in the center of the banner. Finish off the stamping with the Tiny Berry Branch in rich cocoa. Stamp it on all the squares, inside the basket, and in the center of the banner.
Glue the cream die cuts to their blue-gray counterparts. Glue all the elements to the embossed panel and then glue that to the cream card base. Glue the banner across the bottom of the card.
For the envelope, stamp the Mini Basket in the center of the flap and fill it the same way you did for the card.
