  • Stamp sentiment on a piece of Vellum paper in Vintage Photo Distress Ink, add Clear Embossing powder and heat it up. Cut vellum piece and add it to panel piece and add stitches.
  • Tie on ribbon. Make a double bow with bow easy, add it to card.
  • Stamp bicycle on Kraft Cardstock in Versamark Ink, add White Embossing powder and heat it up. Die-cut, emboss and stencil piece with Rectangle Nestabilities. Add to card with pop dots. Add mini pearls.
