Directions

  1. Cut Nana's Kids paper in half.

  3. Ink all edges on the Nana's Kids paper.
  4. Stamp Happy Birthday with cupcake in brown on vellum square and on white square.
  5. Mount vellum to white square, being sure to line up images perfectly so only one image is seen. Adhesive can be placed in the corners that will be covered up by the cicle.

  7. Mount this assembly to brown mat.
  8. Mount this assembly to the base of the card.

Discussion

Why mount the vellum image on the white card stock image? The vellum gives it a softer look but the ink has a washed out appearance if you simply place the vellum on white cardstock. The second image on the white cardstock reinforces the vellum image making it darker.
