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!

Go around the edges of the card base with 1/4-inch Scor-Tape. Print out a letter of your choice. Lay the letter on the Scor-Tape sheet and using a stylus, trace the letter. Cut out the letter. Remove a portion of the backing and place on the front of the card, removing more backing as you adhere the letter to the card base. With all the “masks” in place stamp the Mini Peony Peg Stamp in grape jelly, lilac posies, and teal zeal inks. Stamp the Bitty Flower in grape jelly, lilac posies, and teal zeal inks. Stamp the Tiny Dots in gray flannel ink. Stamp the Tiny Leaf in bamboo leaves.

Lay the card of a piece of scrap paper. Remove all the backing and sprinkle with silver glitter. Press it firmly into the Scor-Tape. Brush away the excess and tap off. Put away the glitter that fell on the scrap paper. With your finger, press rub the glitter into the tape.

For foiling, do the same thing, go around the edges of the card base with 1/4-inch Scor-Tape. Print out a letter of your choice. Lay the letter on the Scor-Tape sheet and using a stylus, trace the letter. Cut out the letter. Remove a portion of the backing and place on the front of the card, removing more backing as you adhere the letter to the card base. Cut a piece of silver foil about the size of the letter and apply carefully over the letter with the shiny side up. Rub with a bone folder and gently pull off the letter. Cut small strips for all the sides of the card, lay on the side, rub with bone folder and pull up gently.
