Cut cream cardstock to 6 x 8 1/2", score and fold at 4 1/4" to create card base. Cut the panel from the paper collection to 5 3/4 x 4". Diecut the oval from the panel. Diecut an eyelet oval from the paper collection to coordinate. Sponge the edges of card base and eyelet oval border with Buttercup ink. Sponge the edges of honeycomb panel with Forget-me-not ink and use dimensional adhesive to attach onto card. Attach the eyelet oval onto card. Stamp sentiment into oval opening as shown. Very lightly sponge around the sentiment with Forget-me-not ink to create the illusion of clouds.
