Instructions: Covered notepad measures 2 5/8" x 8 1/4". Follow the instructions found here on Split Coast Stampers with the exception of the 2 pieces of pattern paper used to cover the front and inside of pad. I cut mine 2 3/8" x 8" instead. I used the pink designer paper from the Winter's Eve Paper Collection for these pieces, the piece to cover the top of the notepad and for the flowers. Distress the 2 mats before adhering to the front and inside covers.
To decorate the front cover, die cut the decorative die from the Window Box Elements Die Set using white cardstock. Run it through the Xyron Machine and adhere as pictured.
Using VersaMark Ink on the pink designer paper, stamp the small flowers and leaves from the Ornate Sleigh Set twice and the large flowers and leaves from the Celebrate the Season Set twice. Then heat emboss with white embossing powder. Die cut with the matching dies from Celebrate the Season and Ornate Sleigh & Presents Dies. Shape the flowers and leaves with the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit, glue the flowers and leaves together and then glue the 2 larger flowers and 1 smaller flower to the pad as pictured.
Stamp the sentiment from the Winter's Eve Set on white cardstock with Onyx Black Ink and use the Large Oval Punch to cut it. Add to the pad cover using pop dots. Glue the remaining smaller flower as pictured. Add Minnie Pearl Prills to the flower centers using Designer Dries Clear Glue. Add Clear Wink of Stella to the flowers and leaves as desired.
