How to create

1 Cut a 16.5cm square of green cardstock and attach to the card blank.

2 Trim a 13cm square of white cardstock, stamp the tree with embossing ink as shown. Cover with white embossing powder and heat set.

3 Stamp the princess, then stamp again onto a Post-it note and carefully cut out. Place the mask over the princess.

4 Blend inks on the card: pinks for the sky and greens for grass over the whole panel. Remove the princess mask and colour her in. Punch a medium-sized circle from scrap paper and place the hole onto the panel towards the top right. Sponge pink, orange and red inks through the hole to create a sun. Wipe the whole panel with a piece of kitchen towel to remove any excess ink.

5 Stamp along the bottom edge with a foliage stamp.

6 Punch a fence and trim to fit the panel. Attach, then add glitter the princess’s skirt. Adhere the completed panel onto pink cardstock measuring 14cm square and add to the card front.

7 Stamp the sentiment and die-cut as a label. Sponge the edges with pink ink then affix as shown and a die-cut pet, a few little birds, and pearls.
