Step by step
1 Cut two 14cm-square pieces of cardstock, one white and one purple and emboss both. Carefully cut off the top part of the white panel above the wave pattern and put to one side to use in Step 3. From the remaining white embossed card, cut a 5cm strip from the lined pattern and attach to the centre of the card blank.
2 Carefully cut off the bottom part of the purple cardstock below the embossed wave. Using the red ribbon tape wrap a band of ribbon around this piece of cardstock. Tie a bow and glue to the ribbon band. Glue this purple piece of card to the card frontwith the top edge overlapping the white embossed card. Only apply glue to the sides and bottom edges to create a pocket for the tag.
3 Take the embossed piece of white cardstock from Step 1 and blend the VersaMagic purple ink over the areas and the edges. Attach to the top of the card blank overlapping the embossed white panel.
4 Cut a tag from white cardstock and using the purple inkpad blend the edges of the tag. Using the black inkpad stamp the sentiment on to the tag. Carefully use the purple inkpad to stamp the heart from the ‘With Love’ sentiment around the edges of the tag. Stamp the image again without re-inking the stamp. Attach a piece of ribbon through the loophole on the tag.
5 Tuck the tag into the pocket. Add a little glitter glue to the purple embossed areas.
