1.     Cut your card base front at 3 inches.  Set the card aside.  Take the piece you cut off the front and cut 1 inch off.  This will leave you with a piece that is 2 x 4 1/4”. 

2.     Adhere your acetate to the back of the card front.  Make sure it is lined up completely with the inside edge and top and bottom of the card front.  Now take the extra piece that you cut from the card front (minus the one inch) and adhere to the front of the acetate that is on the left of the card front.  This will give you a window.

3.     Adhere the other craft pieces to the inside of the card front to cover the adhesive that is holding the acetate to the card. Corner round the top right corner of the card front.

4.     Corner round the right corner of the card inside. Adhere the right corner of the green piece of specialty paper. Adhere the green piece of specialty paper to the inside of the card.

5.     Sponge the edges of the newsprint piece of specialty paper with the Distress Ink.  Adhere to the left front panel of the card front.

6.     Cut the leaf die from the green piece of card stock using the die cut machine.

7.     Carefully color the branches brown using the Sharpee.  Use the glue stick to adhere to the front of the card as shown.

8.     Use the layer punch on the middle setting and punch a brown border using the brown cardstock scraps.  Tie a piece of twine on one end and adhere to card bottom right front.

9.      Use the layer punch on the middle setting and punch a tan center (using tan scraps).  Sponge the edges with the Distress ink and then stamp the sentiment using the “coffee” Archival ink.  Adhere using a foam dot.
