Step 1: Use a card from the Blank Card Kit for your base. (Or cut an 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ piece of White Cardstock. Using the 12-inch Trimmer with the Scoring Blade, score along the long edge at 4-1/4″ and fold in half.)
Step 2: Cut a 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″ piece of branches designer paper and mount it on the front of the card. Cut a 5″ x 3-3/4″ piece of gold tonal paper. Concave the corners and mount on the card as shown.
Step 3: Cut a 4-3/16″ x 4-3/16″ piece of navy designer paper. Align one side in the middle of the Arch Border Frame Punch so the ends reach the ends of the outside marks on the punch. Punch and rotate to the next side. Repeat until all four sides are punched. Trim off the corner squares. Cut a 4″ x 4″ piece of light blue designer paper. Align in the middle of the punch and punch as before. Mount the smaller light blue arch shape on top of the navy arch shape and adhere on the middle of the card.
