Make a 4 ”x 5 ” card from cream colored card stock (Paper Accents).

Ink Hero Art floral stamp with Ranger Brights ink, dabbing the light colors first and ending with the dark green.

Spritz the inked stamp with water and stamp onto the card.  Ink stamp again and continue in this manner across the card making a random pattern.

Fold a half sheet of Paper Accents vellum over the stamped card and print word stamp (Hero Arts) on one side with Ranger Andirondack ink (eggplant).

Using a template or ruler mark a rectangle on the vellum to highlight part of the stamped design.  Cut out the rectangle with an Xacto knife on a self-healing cutting mat.

Glue the vellum to the card stock on the folded edge with a tiny amount of Aleene’s  Clear Gel Tacky Glue.
