METHOD
1. Stick patterned paper and mirri card onto a card base.
2. Using 13.9cm x 14.6cm of mirri card and die cut regal borders along the top and bottom of the longest sides.
3. Repeat the above step, using one of the co-ordinating background cut dies. Using 3D foam pads, fix the panel to the card base.
4. Cut a strip of mirri card, 5.10cm x 13.9cm. Matt decorative paper onto the strip, then attach to the middle of the previous die-cut. 
5. Die cut the Pearl Doily from mirri card. Fix to the centre of the greeting base using 3D foam pads. Use a circle nesting die that fits within the pearl doily die-cut, then cut patterned paper out of it. Die cut mirri card from the next size down.
6. Stamp and heat emboss a sentiment onto the mirri card. Adhere to card using 3D foam pads, then embellish.

TIP: When it comes to applying your sentiment, use an anti-static pad prior to stamping and heat embossing. This will prevent the embossing from clinging to unwanted parts of the card.
