Start by cutting a piece of black card 2 mm smaller than each side of a UK a6 (5.8in x 4.1in) size card blank. Then a piece of the Canary Yellow 160gsm card a mm or so smaller round each side than the black card. Stick this to the black card.

Next, use some Alpha Dies and cut the word 'Awesome' from your choice of coloured card stock, omitting the 'o'. This is a grest way of using up scraps!

You then want to stamp your image, colour it using alcohol markers and cut it out.

I added a little white Highlight to my image for extra detail using my white Gelly Roll pen.

Line up your letters on your card and be sure they're where you want them before committing. Use a T-ruler and wet glue to stick down.

Then it's time to stamp and heat emboss the smaller sentiments. For a neater finish, prepare your black card with an anti static bag. Use a good quality Versamark ink pad and a fine detail white embossing powder.

Finally, it's time to piece everything together! Stick your work down to a top fold a6 card blank using foam tape. Then, using adhesive foam squares, stick down your image and your smaller sentiments. Finish off with some sequins/gems of your choice.

Thank you for joining me.

See you again soon!
