Step 1. Use your scrapbook adhesives to adhere your spotted cardstock in ‘Snowflake’ to the front of your card. Trim the edges for a perfect fit.
Step 2. Die-cut your large heart from Dark Pink Small Dot patterned paper. Use your foam square adhesives to attach the heart to the cardstock.
Step 3. Die-cut “MOM” from orange Core Essentials cardstock; adhere to the front of the card. If you decide to make this clean and simple card for another special occasion, make sure to get the right die-cut to fit that occasion. For example, if you make this for Father’s Day, cut out “Dad.” If you’re making a Christmas card, you might want to go with something like “Joy” or use blue cardstock and cut out a giant snowflake for the front of your card.
Step 4. Embellish the front of your card; use your enamel dots to decorate the embossed cardstock if desired.
