How to Make

1.  Print out the template and cut out the card stand. With a piece of kraft card, draw around the card stand template and cut out to create the easel for your card.

2.  Cut a 15cm square with another piece of kraft card and leave to one side. With your chosen piece of Pretty in Pink paper, cut a 14.5 cm square. Pick another contrasting patterned paper and cut it into 13.4 cm square and stick on top of the Dovecraft paper at an angle using double sided tape.

3.  We have then cut a doily in half and placed it on the card, pick your first layer of your decoupage topper and decide where you would like to position it at a slight angle on your paper to ensure both halves of the doily are peeking around the image. Once you are happy with the placement, stick the doilies down. We have then cut the striped paper to 5cm x 14.2cm and then stick to the left side of the card. 

4.  We then stuck the Belle and Boo decoupage topper on top of the doilies and layered with a pink chipboard frame using foam pads.

5.  To add a feminine touch to your card, decorate your frame with a sentiment topper on the top left of the frame using two foam pads on top of each other. Then attach a mini bow to the top of the frame with a minipeg.

6.  Layer and stick three blossoms together and add to under right corner of the frame. Finish by adding a large adhesive gem in the centre.

7.  Finally, we cut a 16cm strip of the Pretty in Pink bunting ribbon and stuck it at an angle at the top of the card. Wrap the ends around the back of the paper and stick down to keep in place. Add double sides tape to the back of the paper and layer onto of the 15cm square kraft card.
