  • Take you tissue paper and crumple it up real good, when you open it make sure you are careful not to rip it
  • Open one end of the adhesive sheet an lay it on top of the 3 3/4 by 5 piece of whisper white, give it a good press
  • Lay the tissue paper on the table and and adhere it to the other sticky side
  • Use your paper snips to cut off the excess tissue paper

Instructions

  • I first folded the card stock in half at 4 1/4

  • Folded the 1 ” piece back
  • I cut the basic black piece at 1″ and the larger piece I placed on the inside of the card edge
  • The other piece I added to that one inch flap leaving a black border sticking out
  • Then I glued the one inch flap down
  • On the white card stock I randomly stamped flowers starting with the solid image first in pool party ink and the overlay in island indigo using lovely friends stamp set
  • Attached the two pieces to the front and stamped a bee from garden in bloom above and below on the one inch strip
