Trim papers according to paper dimensions on page 40 of Wishes. Instead of cutting separate pieces for A and C, cut one 3” x 5 1/2” piece since they are from the same piece of paper.
Emboss image on piece D. (Note: Use a piece of Baby Pink cardstock so the color of the cardstock will show through the embossed image.)
Sponge Chocolate ink over surface of piece D, revealing the embossed image. (Note: The image will resist the ink.)
Sponge edges of all papers and card base with Chocolate ink.
Stamp sentiment on right side of piece B in brown StazOn® ink.
Assemble the card according to the instructions on page 40, adding 3-D foam tape behind pieces D and E.
