CLUE #3 ~ Add Basic White 3 ¾” x 5” to card front with adhesive.
4 ~ Stamp greeting on Basic White 1 3/8” x 2 ¼” with ink.
CLUE #5 ~ Adhere stamped Basic White layer to Colored cardstock layer with adhesive Add dimensionals to the back but DON’T ADHERE TO CARD YET
#6 ~ Add Designer Series papers to the remaining pieces of colored cardstock with adhesive.
CLUE #7 ~ Now it is time to lay out all the pieces onto the front of your card. Do not adhere until you are happy with the way your card looks. I am going to start with the sentiment layers and add that piece to the top right corner.
CLUE #8 ~ You can keep the font with just the rectangles and sentiment or, If you would like to add an image. Stamp your image on a basic white scrap. If it needs to be colored you can color it now.
CLUE #9 ~ Die or fussy cut your image, or punch if it coordinates. Add the image to the front of the card either with adhesive or dimensionals.
CLUE #10 ~ If your card needs Embellishments add those now!
After following the clues, here is the card I created.
