White textured card stock

Inserts from the Maya Road printer tray

Pink and white gems

Cord or string for the hanger

Stapler

Adhesive

Edge distresser

Silhouette

FRONT:

1. Choose three patterned papers.  Cut them slightly larger than the inserts from the Maya Road printer tray (I used the B side of Quilt on inserts #1 and #3, and the B side of Yardsticks on #2.)

2.  Adhere a strip from the Border Strips paper to one of the Quilt pieces.  Distress all edges.

3.  Adhere all three pieces to inserts.

INSERT #1:

1.  Cut a piece of the B side of Bingo slightly smaller than the insert, distress, and adhere it to the Quilt paper on insert #1.

2. Die cut the words “always remember” from white card stock (I used my Silhouette, Pacifico font, “always” is sized 1.140 x 2.295, and “remember” is sized .770 x 3.080) and adhere to insert.  

3. Add pink and clear gems.

INSERT #2:

1. Cut a piece of the mint side of Dk Pink Mint Solid paper slightly smaller than the insert, distress, and adhere to Yardsticks paper on insert #2.

2. Cut a piece of Flower Vine paper slightly smaller than mint paper, distress, and adhere to mint paper.

3. Die cut the words “you” and “are” from Dk Pink Mint Solid paper ( I used my Silhouette, Pacifico font, “you” is sized 1.065 x 1.615, and “are” is sized .550 x 1.550) and adhere.

4. Die cut a bow, and adhere (I used my Silhouette, and a Lori Whitlock bow.)

5. Add clear gems.

INSERT #3:

1.  Die cut the word “LOVED” in capital letters from both white card stock, and the Dk Pink Mint Solid paper (I used my Silhouette, Pacifico font, “LOVED” is sized .985 x 3) and adhere the white word, then the pink word slightly off-kilter from the white to create a shadow affect.

2.  Adhere pink and clear gems.
