Instructions : 1. Stamp image on Neenah Solar white with Memento Tuxedo Black ink

4. Cut a 3 ½” square from green cardstock and emboss edges with Bullfrog embossing powder. Attach image square with tearific tape
5. Stamp “You’re on my mind” with Versamark on Neenah Solar white and emboss with Bullfrog embossing powder. Cut into a 1 ½” square with corners at top and bottom.
6. Cut a 1 5/8” square from green cardstock and attach under sentiment.
7. Cut a 4 ¾” x 6 ¾” piece from each of two different designer papers and cut on a diagonal. (be careful that you cut each piece in the correct direction!)
8. Punch border of two matching cardstocks on 8 ½” side and cut off in 1” strip
9. Tape borders together, overlapping slightly and tape to longest edge of one triangular designer paper.
10. Do not tape DP down to cardstock, but just put in place, first lower piece without border, then with just a small piece of tape at long edge of upper triangle, place on cardstock so that there is a slight border of cardstock around edges.
11. Trim border edges at corners before taping down to card with ½” tape
12. Attach large and small squares with dimensionals and then add flowers and leaves at bottom with glue or crystal effects. ( I added Crystal Ice glitter to leaves and Lemonade glitter to flowers)
