Quick Cards Tip: Use a Dovecraft Easy Fix roller for speed when gluing down layers

2.   Using the double sided paisley paper cut and tear two 10.5 x 16cm rectangles, glue one to the card base with the blue side facing front. On the green paisley paper score and tear a diagonal line 5cm down on the left, across to the right side. Glue a thin adhesive border around the 3 closed sides to create a pocket and glue down to the card blank.
