1. For the paint poured background, pour a little bit of each paint into a small plastic cup, alternating colours of the paint as you go. Alternate the colours a few times, then place the cardstock on top and flip it upside down. Slowly move the cup across the cardstock, slightly lifting it as you pull. This will help to spread the paint and create an interesting pattern.

2. Tilt the cardstock back and forth until the paint is completely spread all over. Have a spare card ready to catch any dripping paint. You can add a few specs of flakes, glitter or chunky glitter on top whilst the paint is still wet, then allow it to dry completely.

3. Once dry, select your favourite areas of the background and die cut the ‘Love’, a few small hearts and a large stitched circle. Set these aside. Use the turnabout die to create the mini hearts background, then use a stitched circle die to cut it out.

4. Back it with the paint poured circle and secure to the top-left corner of a 10.5cm x 15cm white landscape blank. Trim the excess and adhere the heart die-cuts on top. Fix the die-cut sentiment, then add a second stamped sentiment below in black. Round off the bottom corners of the greeting with a punch to finish.
