Here's the card we are going to make today...

Butterfly punch, Ribbon, Gems
14.7cm x 14.7cm square card {you can use a A5 card & cut down to 14.7cm}
12.5cm x 12.5cm square card
3 pieces of blue card...1st piece 14cm x 14cm, 2nd piece 12cm x 12cm. 3rd piece 14cm x 6.8cm
2 pieces of backing paper...1st piece 13.7cm x 13.7cm, 2nd piece 11.7cm x 11.7cm

2 large plain white circles
1 small blue scalloped circle
1 small white plain circle
Promarkers...oatmeal, blush, ivory, grass, lime zest, leaf green, burnt sienna, cocoa, terracotta, duck egg, aqua

1) Take your 14.7cm square card & cut a panel off the front of your card measuring 7.4cm width.

2) Take some ribbon and attach to the inside of your card, just like the picture, now wrap it around your card and adhere the ribbon to your card to keep the ribbon secure.
{don't worry where the ribbon is attached inside your card this will be covered}

3) Emboss your piece of 14cm x 6.8cm blue card, now matt & layer your largest piece of blue card & your largest piece of backing paper. Now stick both panels into your card. 

4) Stamp your chosen image onto your large white circle & colour, i have chosen to colour my image with Promarkers. Now stamp your chosen sentiment onto your small white circle, now matt & layer both circles onto your blue scalloped circles.

   {this is what your card will look like after step 6}

5) Take some ribbon and attach to the front of your 12.5cm square card about half way up the fold of your card.
6) Turn your card over so the back of your card is now your front of your card. Now matt & layer your 12cm square blue card with your 11.7cm square backing paper, next you can stick this to the front of your card. Wrap around your attached ribbon & secure with some adhesive.

7) Using foam pads you can now stick your image to the front of your 12.5cm square card along with your sentiment.
8) Now stick the smaller card onto the larger card like shown above.

9) Open the smaller card & tuck in the flap of your larger card inside, like shown.

10 ) I matt & layer the spare large blue scallope & plain white circle and stamp a sentiment that came with the Bright Blue Skies stamp set,  i then placed this inside of the smaller card.
11) Now it's time to do the exciting bit which is to embellish as you wish!!
