  1. Fold AA card along fold line with the help of your bone folder. Then emboss the front flap with the square lattice folder. Use the embossing folder facing up (so that you can see the Stampin’ Up! logo) and laying at right angles to you (ie in a landscape position) insert cardstock (with card in portrait position ) into embossing folder as far as the fold line only. Remember you are only embossing the smaller front section of the card.
  2. Punch a word window hole in the front of your card. I used the old style punch and placed the punch in as far as it would go from the bottom right hand side of the card front. The black outside edge of the punch should be about ⅛” up from the bottom of the card.
  3. Place the largest CC card inside of the front flap but don’t adhere yet. Trace the shape of the word window punch and punch out the traced shape from the CC card, then adhere in place.
  4. Take the long strip of CC card and corner round two ends furtherest away from the score line. Use the sandy speckles wheel to stamp dotty image on card and use the mat pack to make faux stitching lines around all the edges of the strip. (You will not need to go past the fold line as that part will be hidden. You may need to freehand pierce the holes at the corners to give the stitching a nice rounded look at the corners.)  Use the small eyelet placement section on your mat pack as a guide to draw in guide marks for 3 holes. Punch out holes using the smaller circle punch on your crop-o-dile.
  5. Stamp your desired sentiment on the biggest piece of VV card using artichoke ink, taking care with placement so that the words will not show through on the closed card. Adhere the CC buckle to the back of your VV card, making sure buckle is in the right place to go into the punched word window and then adhere both pieces to the AA base card.
  6. Stamp motorbike image with AA ink on the smaller piece of VV card. Use the paper piercing tool to make two small holes close together in the VV card and poke a safety pin trinket through, then mat onto PP card and finally mat onto CC card. Adhere to the top of your card, centring it so that a small portion hangs over the front flap.
  7. Stamp “Wish Big” on your envelope.
