How do I make it?

  1. Create a 14.5x12cm to folding white card blank. 
  2. Re-size the digital image to measure 9cm high and print out on white card. Colour the image using the Copics listed, then trim, leaving a narrow border all round. 
  3. Using the largest rectangle stencil, blend pink ink over the card front. 
  4. Stamp the sentiment using black ink on the right of the card front.
  5. Attach the image to the left of the card front with foam pads.
