    2 Adhere the top of each letter onto the thin strips, and place them within the aperture Use a craft mat with guidelines to line up your letters. Add patterned paper to the card blank, then the sentiment using foam pads.

    3 Using Aquatini ink, stamp the succulents and leaves, then cut out and colour with alcohol markers. Arrange onto the card using foam pads, add little hearts and gloss glitter to give it sparkle, then add Nuvo Drops to finish.

  2. Mini Notebook - 1 Using patterned paper, cover a notebook, 7.5cm x 9.5cm. Attach leftover letters, ensuring some of them overhang around the sides, then trim as shown.
