Step 2: Cut an 11-1/4″ x 2-1/2″ strip of both brushed metal paper and cardstock. Adhere the strips together. Punch with the Horse Punch at regular intervals, five times across. Trim a little off the long sides to make the strip 2-1/4″ high. With a small hole punch, punch a hole in each of the four corners. Mount the strip on the border using Foam Squares.
Step 3: Add stickers and embellishments.
Step 1: Create the card base. Cut an 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ piece of White Solid Cardstock. With the 12-inch Trimmer and the Scoring Blade, score along the long edge at 4-1/4″ and fold in half.
Step 2: Cut a 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ piece of green leaves paper and adhere to the front of the card. Cut a 4″ x 3-1/4″ piece of anemones and greenery paper and adhere to the top.
