Apply clear glue under the flap and adhere to the second card piece making a base that measures 7 inches by 5 inches.

Cut a mat layer from the designer paper collection. It should measure 4 3/4 inches by 6 inches. Using the plain edge die that matches the lacey border die, cut out a plain edge from this mat layer. Cut another paper 4 3/4 inches by 4 inches and score at 1/8-inch intervals on the scoring board. Adhere this second piece to the front of the card base at the bottom. Cut a lacey border from the border die in white card stock and adhere to the first mat layer matching the plain edge. Adhere tis to the top of the card base using foam tape.

They should overlap in a few places.
