  2. Fold large piece of Crumb Cake in half to form card base. Attach Soft Suede Card Stock to this, then attach stamped Crumb Cake on top.
  3. Cut banner notch into the Hello Honey piece of Bohemian DSP. (We used Season of Cheer DSP, but it is now sold out.). Use as guide to cut Kraft Corrugated paper and Vanilla ribbon at the same angle.
  4. Use Fast Fuse adhesive to attach Very Vanilla ribbon to card front. (leaving enough room to be able to add additional layers.)
  5. Attach Corrugated Paper to DSP with Liquid Glue. Attach these layers on top of the ribbon with Dimensionals.
  6. Punch 2 hearts out of the Gold Glimmer Paper. Attach with Dimensionals on top of stamped hearts.
  7. Carefully attach word with rolled up Mini Glue Dots. Attach a couple sequins with Liquid Glue.
