Instructions: Create a 5" x 7" card base using white card stock. Locate a patterned paper with tropical foliage and a light blue pattern from within Tropical Paradise Paper Collection. Cut a background mat just slightly smaller than the card front to allow for a white border around the edges. Die cut the Spellbinders floral die cut using white paper, and then cut a mat slightly larger from the decorative paper you've chosen for the background layer to pair with floral die cut. Ink all edges of decorative paper with a pink colored ink. Adhere background mat to card base, floral die cut to coordinating mat and pop up off center of card base using pop dots. Die cut sentiment label using white card stock. Stamp sentiment, add embossing powder while ink is wet and set with heat tool. Ink edges of sentiment label with pink colored ink and apply to card front using pop dots.
