  • 3. Cut green cardstock to 6-1/4”x8-3/4”; score and fold in half. Cut 4-1/8”x5-7/8” light pink piece; set aside.
  • 4. Cut one 3-1/4”x5-5/8” and one 4-1/2”x6-1/4” piece from brown/pink oval paper. Insert larger piece into back album cover. Adhere smaller piece to light pink piece, leaving 1/8” border on three sides.
  • 5. Adhere green ribbon to cardstock, overlapping edge of paper; secure ends at back. Adhere to card front.
  • 6. Use glue dots to adhere metal letters to card as shown.
  • 7. Measure stamped images and add 1/4” to each measurement; cut Pretty Pink cardstock to size and layer under stamped images. Adhere clay pieces to card as shown.
  • More
  • 1. Create card/album sets for bride and groom, new parents, pet owners, gardeners, and more. Just choose an appropriate rubber stamp set.
