Instructions

The first thing that we will do is prepare our paper. We need an A2 base
in white 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!

For the other cuts you’ll need:

  • Cardstock – White, cut 5-1/4″ x 4″, and 5″ x 3-3/4″
  • Cardstock – Purple, cut to 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″
  • Envelope – White

On the smallest white cardstock panel stamp the Grape Border Set. Stamp the Mini Grapes in purple, chartreuse and burgundy ink. Sprinkle with embossing powder and heat. Stamp the Mini Leaf and the Mini Vine in green ink. Stamp the Mini Berry Branch in brown ink. Sprinkle with embossing powder and heat.

Heat up a section of the stamping and lay foil on top with shiny side up. Burnish with bone folder, remove and repeat wherever you want shine.

Stamp the sentiment in purple ink, sprinkle with embossing powder and heat. Adhere foam tape to the back.

Glue the stamped panel to the larger white panel and then glue that to the purple panel. Wrap a purple and chartreuse ribbon around the card and tape at the back. Adhere the foam tape sentiment to the center of the ribbon, gluing down if needed. Glue to the card base.

For the envelope stamp the Grape Border along the flap sung the colors that you used for the card.
