Taking the peach cardstock cut this a little smaller than the card front base, the designer paper for the card front is distressed with a paper distresser. When preparing with double sided tape, apply only to three sides. Leaving the top open so the slider can slip into this opening.
Find the desired designer paper from the paper collection and cut matting for the card base measurements. This is also cut a little smaller than the cardstock. Apply double sided tape then adhere to the card base pieces. Adhere the card front to the centre of the card foot. Centre then adhere the slider to the top edge of the card background. Slip the slider into the card front opening. This makes the card base complete, now continue decorating your card.

Find the sentiment, using a scrap of designer paper stamp with gold embossing powder. Trim edges so you will have a banner that will fit into the heart centre.
Stamp three leaf swirls using the Sap green ink, apply a little ink to the heart of the leaves using the daubers. Make the roses and rose buds.
