Designer’s Tip: Be careful not to get the heat gun too close when embossing the amber rose embossing glitter or it can change color slightly. Font: Homemade Apple 24 pt.
- Remove the posts and pages from the Sara's Surfaces™ 6”x6” Album. Use the surface of the black ink pad to color the album front and back covers and spine. Cut two 6 1/8” squares of On Butterfly Wings ivory newsprint paper and ink edges. Glue 1 to the back cover and save the other for step #2.
- Ink the lace rose stamp with VersaMark™ and stamp, with rose on the left side, onto black cardstock. Ink again and turn the stamp with the rose on the right side, aligning the lace pattern. Sprinkle with amber rose embossing glitter and heat. Cut around the lace, leaving 1/16” border and glue the cardstock to On Butterfly Wings pink dot paper, leaving ¼” border. Ink pink dot paper edges black and across the center to the 6 1/8” square of ivory newsprint. Glue the newsprint to the album front cover.
- Use ½” wide On Butterfly Wings pink grosgrain ribbon to make a bow. Write or print “thoughts” On Butterfly Wings pink dot paper and trace with Design Tool Kit #7 Vintage Sign shape. Ink edges black and glue under the bow to the lace border as shown.
- Apply glue stick to one side of 7 ½” length of 1” wide On Butterfly Wings ivory grosgrain ribbon and glue down the center of the album spine. Wrap the ends to the inside of the album. Use the X-acto® knife to cut an “x” where the post holes are located, insert posts, pages and post backs. Place lengths of Pink Jewel Border Dazzles™ on the ivory ribbon, between the posts. Place Pink Jewel Dazzles™ on the top of each post.
