Tutorial

1-Cut your card stock:

  • Black measures 5 1/2 by 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4
  • Whisper White cut TWO pieces 5 1/4 X 4  and one scrap piece 1 3/4 X 5
  • Real Red 3 3/4 x 5

2-If you would like to emboss your red card stock go ahead and do so. In my sample shown I used the retired embossing folder called happy hearts.

3- Using your scrap piece of whisper white, stamp the heart image from Ribbon of Courage at the top and the bottom of the strip in Real Red ink. Then using the memento black ink stamp the Panda from the Panda Party stamp set in the center. Using a real red stampin' write marker color the heart in the panda's note and then write 'I Love You' in the card that he is holding.

4-Attach the stamped panel to the front of the real red panel

5-Wrap twine around the left side portion of the red panel and adhere the twine to the back with glue dots

6-Attached the real red panel (I used dimensional foam pieces to give some depth to the card but you don't have to do so to the whisper white panel

6-Mount the white panel onto the front of the card (black card stock)

7-Attach the remaining 5 1/4 X 4 white panel to the inside of your card. 

Happy Stamping!!
