Simon Hurley Create. Proud of You Card by Lieschen Harshbarger Step 1

Step 1: Create an A2 card base out of Stark White Cardstock. Cut the 8½ x 11 cardstock down to 4¼ x 11. Then score it at 5½.

Step 6: Cover the succulent image that was stamped on Stark White Cardstock with the trimmed masked image from step 5. Next stamp another succulent next to it. You will repeat this step to use the layering stamp to color the inside of the image with Later Gator and Viper ink pads.

Step 7: Use the coordinating dies to do a partial die cutting of the most open succulent stamped image. Trim the partially covered succulent with scissors to make them both look evenly die cut.
