These directions are not specific to any card. They will walk you through the basic steps so you can create your own version of the layout.

1- If using punches: Punch out your shapes or images in coordinating color cardstock. Add any extra elements to the shapes like the highlights on the balloons or folding up the wings to the butterflies.

2- If using stamps: Stamp the images on your 3 ½” x 4 ¾” cardstock. Place the largest image about 1/3 from the bottom of the cardstock to the left. Place a medium size image about 2/3” from the bottom on the right. Place the smallest image about 1/3” from the top in the center.

3- Run the 3 ½” x 4 ¾” cardstock through your Big Shot with your choice of embossing folder.

4- Add the 3 ¾” x 5” cardstock or Designer Series Paper to the front of your card at an angle. Add the 3 ½” x 4 ¾” cardstock on top at an opposing angle.

5- Stamp your greeting and wrap twine, thread, ribbon to the back of the greeting. Add it to your card with dimensionals about 1/3” from the bottom of the card on the right so it is close to the edge of the cardbase.

6- If using punches: Place the largest shape (or combine 2 together) about 1/3 from the bottom of the cardstock to the left of the greeting. Place a medium size shape about 2/3” from the bottom on the right above the greeting. Place the smallest shape about 1/3” from the top in the center.

7- Add some embellishments in the same areas of the punched shapes or stamped images.
All Done!
