Step by step

2 Die-cut the leaf several times from white cardstock and layer together. Die-cut the sentiment from white cardstock.
3 Trim the panel to size then adhere the dies onto the panel as shown.
4 Attach two strips of Washi tape down the side of the card front and attach the panel to the centre to finish.
