1. Stamp a decorative background onto 12.5cm x 16cm of white card with embossable ink. Sprinkle white embossing powder on the stamped background, then heat with an embossing tool.

2. Dilute blue oxide ink with water in a palette, then paint or sponge onto the card. The stamped image should show through. Add green oxide ink to the bottom of the panel. Spray the card with water, then blot off any excess colour with a paper towel

3. Once your background is dry, stamp a few pieces of foliage onto white card with an embossing pad, sprinkle with white embossing powder, then heat-set. Colour the leaves with coral and pink oxide ink pads and water to blend. Trim the shapes, then arrange them in the bottom-right of the greeting.

4. Fix the panel to the centre of a 13.5cm x 17.5cm white blank. Add a strip of coral patterned paper to the greeting. Die cut ‘Just because’ from green card, then adhere to the right of the decorative strip.
