- Re-size the digital image to measure 10cm high and print out on white card.
- Colour the image using the markers listed. Cut out the image, leaving a narrow border.
- Doodle a border around the edges of the card front with a black fine tip pen.
- Stamp and heat emboss the sentiment on black card with white embossing powder and trim to measure 6.5x2cm.
- Attach the image to the top of the card front with foam pads. Add the sentiment to the bottom right corner, as though the image is standing on it.
- Finish by adding a few black gems around the right of the card front.
