Step 1:

Step 6:

On a piece of Black Pearl Shimmering Cardstock, stamp the sentiment from the Spectrum Noir Aqua stamp set 'Bloom' and heat emboss it using white powder. Use a heat gun to activate it. Trim it out to a single strip (about 3/4 inches tall and 4 inches wide).

Step 7:

Trim out the coloured sheet to 4 x 5.25 inches. Mount it to a card base (4.25 x 11, scored at 5.5 inches to make a top folding card) using 3D foam for dimension. Adhere the strip to the front of the card.
