Instructions: The finished size of this card: !4.8 cm x 21 cm. For the card base, take the SUP A4 card stock and fold in half. Using the bone folder sharpen the fold. Taking the Cascading Fuchsia oval die cut x 2 from the SUP A4, die cut x 2 Peach card stock. Put 1 of the SUP oval frames aside. Cut away the center of the remaining 3 oval frames. Stack and glue these oval rings together, forming a chip board. 

Keeping and putting aside the SUP lattice off cut for later. To this chipboard frame apply the Forest Moss ink with the foam tool, adding a little Walnut Stain ink to the edges only. Apply Versamark to the frame, clear embossing powder then fix this with the heat gun. Repeat this if needed, so you have a glossy finish over the oval circle. Adhere the remaining SUP Lattice frame to the left side of the center. This will become your guide for he placement for the Fuchsia spray. 

Taking the clear card stock, cut this to fit the card base front. This will be your card front. Use the stamp positioner to align the stamp, for the Fuchsia spray. Remembering you will be stamping with stazon on the flip side of the clear card stock (This is because when you use alcohol ink, it will distort the stamped image. So you need to apply the color on the flip side of the stamping.) If you make a mistake, you can remove the ink and alcohol with the blending solution. (But make sure the surface it is dry and clean before continuing.) Color the image with the alcohol inks.

 Taking the remaining SUP lattice frame centers. Cut and glue to the card front base. Arranging as shown in the photo. Add a very light application of the Forest Moss ink with the foam ink tool. Apply the Walnut Stain to the edges of the base card front. Adhere the clear card stock card front to the base at the frame with the wet glue. When the glue is dry, do the same with the chipboard frame. Holding down so the frame will not slip out of alignment while drying. Taking the HCD-750 Cut Mat Create die set and the S5-218 die set. Find the small tag die and die cut using the SUP A$ card stock. Ink all edges with the distress inks. Stamp the sentiment on the top tag.

 Adhere the tags together with cut to size Double Dots. Adhere the tag to the lower right of the frame.
So much fun can be had, coloring with all those bottles of alcohol ink that we have stashed in the back cupboard...LOL
