  7. On your piece of cardstock that is 4.25″ x 5.5″ stamp the same image twice. Once in the top left corner, once in the bottom right corner. Color the images in with your Krylon paint pen.

  10. Ink around the edges of your piece. Take your cardstock that is 8.5 x 5.5 and fold. This will be your card base. Glue your stamped panel onto the card. The reason I do the stamping on a separate panel is because the mist tends to cause the cardstock to curl, and by using a separate base you can bed the piece back into shape when gluing it onto the base.
