Step by Step:

  1. Trim an A4 card blank in half to make a tent fold A5 card blank. Trim heart paper slightly smaller and ink and distress the edges. Layer onto taupe cardstock of which the edges have also been distressed.
  2. Trim a smaller panel of coordinating paper and a slightly larger panel of cardstock. Distress the edges of both and layer to the right hand side of the card.
  3. Trim a border of the rose paper and layer onto a border of the coordinating cardstock. Punch a border to the bottom edge and wrap a length of the lace trim around. Fold around the card about a third of the way up.
  4. Add some strands of bakers twine along the centre of the lace.
  5. Layer the paper decoupage sections together to the right hand side of the card using the large doily panels as the background.
  6. Add an inked sentiment and some buttons to accent.
  7. Finish with some blue adhesive stones and a satin ribbon bow.
