How do I make it?
- Create a 13x10.5cm white top folding card.
- Re-size the digital image to measure 10cm high and print out on white card.
- Colour the image using the markers listed, then cut out the image leaving a narrow border. Place to one side.
- Attach the largest oval stencil to the card front and blend the two yellow inks over it, keeping the darker yellow towards the top of the oval.
- Before removing the oval stencil, layer the star stencil over the top and add stars to the oval with the darker yellow ink.
- Stamp sentiment to the right of the yellow oval with black ink.
- Fix the cut out image to the left of the card front with foam pads.
Echoing the card sentiment, "You've got this!"
