How do I make it?

  1. Create a 12cm square black card blank. 
  2. Re-size the digital image to measure 9cm high and print out on white card. 
  3. Colour the image using the markers listed, then trim around the edge, leaving a narrow border. 
  4. Add white spots to the red waistcoat with a white gel pen. 
  5. Die-cut the scallop frame three times; twice with plain white card, once with black card and keep one of the white centres. Mount the die-cuts together, making sure you use the black frame as the top layer.
  6. Attach patterned paper, measuring 12cm square, to the card front. Attach the frame and the white centre to the card front, as shown.
  7. Stamp the sentiment in black ink at the right of the white panel.
  8. Mount the image onto the card front with foam pads. Finally add an enamel star next to the sentiment.
