How do I make it?

  1. Create a white 10.5cm square top folding card blank. 
  2. Re-size the digital image to measure 8cm high and print out on white card.
  3. Colour the image using the Copics listed. 
  4. Trim around the image leaving a narrow border, making sure the table section measures 10cm wide by 3.5cm high at the peak. 
  5. Cut a piece of white card to measure 10.5cm square, colour with blue ink and a blending brush, then splatter with water. 
  6. Stamp a sentiment with black ink in the top right of the panel, then doodle a border on this panel and also the image, lining them up. 
  7. Attach the blue panel to the card front with double-sided tape. Add image to the bottom of the blue panel with foam pads to finish.
