Form a 7.5 x 5.5” card base from dark purple cardstock. Cut one panel measuring 6.5 x 4.25” from light purple and one panel measuring 6 x 3.75” from dark cardstock.
Die cut one Believe from dark and one from light cardstock. Adhere them together, using Glue Dots, with the light coloured diecut on top and the dark diecut slightly offset behind so it appears as a drop shadow.
Cut a panel of smooth cardstock measuring approximately 6 x 3.5”. Cut a piece of Easy-Cut adhesive to 5.75 x 3.5”. Remove one side of the release paper and adhere it to the smooth panel. Run this through your diecutting machine for even adhesion.
Remove remaining release paper and lay foil, gold side up, over the whole adhesive surface. Place this panel inside a folded sheet of copier paper to protect it and run it through your die cutting machine again. Trim to 5.75 x 3.25”.
Adhere Believe into the middle of the foiled panel using Glue Dots.
Place foiled Believe panel onto the foam pad and use your stylus to emboss the surface by pressing firmly. Draw flourishing designs and leaves and dots around the diecut.
Assemble panels as shown in the photo using foam adhesive.
