1.    Trim a piece of Basic Black Cardstock   Cardstock to to 29.6 x 10.5 cms; score the long side at 14.8 cms to create a mountain fold A6 card base

2.  Trim a piece of Whisper White Cardstock to 14.4 x 10.1 cms; 

Mount the following stamps from the Awesomely Artistic Stamp Set onto Acrylic Blocks (unless you have a wood mount stamp set) and begin by using Random Stamping, Stamping off the page, and Third Generation Stamping Techniques  with the large floral stamp and Watermelon Wonder Ink Pad.

3.  Stamp the 'pollen' stamp first using Cucumber Crush ink pad, and then the Delightful Dijon Ink Pad. Then the Button stamp using Tip Top Taupe ink Pad and for this use just the stamping off technique to create a watermark effect. 

4.  Next stamp across the lower third of the card using the 'Burlap' stamp and Basic Black ink pad. Run a strip of Tear & Tape just below the burlap image and add a strip of Venetian Crochet trim, wrapping round onto the back of the panel. and mount onto the card base.

5.  Onto some scrap Whisper White Cardstock, using Basic Black Ink Pad, stamp Two Dragonflies and one label. Stamp Then stamp the FRIEND sentiment inside the label. Cut these elements out using good paper snips, rotating the cardstock and not the scissors as you cut.
