INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Cut your Call Me Clover card base at 501/2″ x 8-1/2″. Score and fold at 4-1/4″. 2. Cut your Granny Apple Green card front at 4″ x 5-1/4″. Run through the Big Shot with the Corrugated embossing folder. Attach to card base with Tombow Glue. I laid two E Stamp Blocks on top to help the glue attach the Corrugated card front to the card base. It just was not staying down by itself. I was not patient enough to hold it down with my hands. 3. Stamp your sentiment on Lemon Lime Twist cardstock with Call Me Clover ink. Cut it out with an Oval Stitched Shape Framelit. 4. Cut out the largest Stitched Labels Framelit from Call Me Clover cardstock. 5. Layer the sentiment and the Label with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Attach to card front with Tombow Glue. Again, lay the blocks over the top for a few minutes.
Your Card is finished.
TIPS: 1. Fill your Stampin’ Spritzer with Water. 2. Only give 4-5 spritzes with your Stampin’ Spritzer. 3. Use a Stampin’ Spritzer rather than a normal spray bottle. The Spray Bottle will get the cardstock too wet making it curl as it drys. This will also make it harder lay flat when you attach it to your card.
