Cut the 8 ½ x 11 inch card stock in half so it measures 4 ¼ b 11 inches.

Then score in the middle which would be 5 ½ inches. Fold the card. This would be the portrait orientation.

Place your 4 x 5 ¼ piece of paper in an embossing folder and run through your embossing machine. Almost any embossing folder will work just to give texture to the simple card.

Adhere the embossed paper to the front of your card. Leave an equal margin on all sides.

Glue your strips of paper (I used pink) on top of embossed sheet. I adhered them from dark to light with the darkest on bottom and light at top.

Then out of the small piece of pink or lavender paper punch you 2 “circle.

Then punch your 1 ½ circle out of white piece of paper.

On the white circle stamp “Hello Friend” I used Rich Razzel Berry ink.

With dimensionals adhere white circle to lavender circle. The using dimensional again adhere lavender circle to card.

Then you can add ribbon or gems. I added gems.

Inside the card you can stamp any sentiment you wish. I used “Thinking of You”

Fits in small envelope.
