1. Cut a piece of the Crumb Cake Cardstock to 8 ½” x 5 ½” for a card base (you can get 2 of these out of 1 – 8 ½” x 11 piece of cardstock) with the paper trimmer.
2. Score the above base at 4 ¼” with the Simply Scored and fold in half to create a 4 ¼” x 5 ½” card.
3. Cut a piece of 4” x 5 ¼” piece of the striped pink paper in the Patterns Stack using the paper trimmer.
4. Cut 2 pieces of 1” x 8 ½” paper from the Pretty in Pink Cardstock. Score every ¼” along the length of both pieces. Fold back and forth along the score lines to create an accordion with both pieces. Glue together to create a circle and set aside to dry.
5. Stamp the heart circle stamp on the Whisper White Cardstock in Crumb Cake. Set aside to dry.
6. Cut a piece 1” x 2 ¾” from the Whisper White Cardstock. Using the brush tip of the Basic Black Marker, colour the words “so happy I found” of the stamp from the Totally A-maze-ing stampset and stamp on the paper along the top approx. 1” from the edge. Colour the word “You” of the stamp from the Loving Thoughts stampset. Cut the end of the piece to create a banner using the 1” square punch on a 45 degree angle. Ink the edges in Crumb Cake with the Stamping Sponge.
7. Punch a circle from a scrap piece of cardstock and add glue around the full circle. Take the accordion paper circle and gently push the top edge towards the centre. Once the accordion flower is created, gently shuffle onto the circle of glue. Set the punch on top, upside down to hold in place while it dries.
8. Glue the rectangular piece of patterned paper to the front of the card.
9. Glue the banner with the wording on the card.
10. Punch the heart circle out of the white cardstock. Add glue to the back. Put on the accordion flower and put the punch on top again to hold in place while it dries.
11. Glue the accordion circle to the card with the heart circle attached. Colour in the centre heart with the Dazzling Details. Set aside to dry.
