1. Score and fold the 5 1/2” x 8 1/2” piece of Naturals White card stock to create your card
2. Run each of the scrap pieces of Naturals White card stock through the Big Shot, using a
different embossing folder for each piece. Use the 1 1/4” square punch to create a
square of each embossed design. (Or, if you prefer, you can first punch the squares
and then run them through the Big Shot. I create a larger piece of textured card stock
that allows me to make more than one card.)
3. Attach the nine embossed, punched squares onto the solid square of the 3 3/4” square
of Naturals White card stock. Edges of each smaller square should meet up tightly but
not overlap.
4. Attach the 3 3/4” card stock piece from the last step onto the 4” square piece of Pretty in
Pink card stock. Next, apply adhesive on the back of each edge of the Pretty in Pink
card stock square, lay the Pretty in Pink Scalloped Dots ribbon across the front and
wrap the ends to the back, using the adhesive around the edges to secure the ends.
Adhere this piece to the card front.
5. Now itʼs time for stamping. Take the heart image from the Take It To Heart stamp set
and, using Pretty In Pink ink, stamp it onto a scrap piece of Naturals White card stock,
using the Full Heart heart punch to punch out the image.
6. Use the Happy Valentineʼs Day sentiment from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set. Ink it
with Basic Gray ink, and stamp off ONE time before stamping on the scrap piece of
Naturals White card stock. Trim to fit on the Pretty in Pink matte card stock.
7. Use a sponge and Pretty in Pink ink, sponge the edges of both the punched heart
image and the stamped sentiment piece.
8. Attach the sentiment piece to the 2 1/4” x 3/4” piece of Pretty In Pink card stock. Use
Stampinʼ Dimensionals on the back of both the sentiment and heart, then attach to card
Your card is complete and ready to use!
