  1.  First start by gathering supplies.  You will need:
    1. one sheet of white 8.5″ x 11″ cardstock
    2. embossing folder
    3. Distress Inks
    4. Water brush
    5. Mini Misti stamp tool or stamping acrylic blocks
    6. small flower stamps that have outlines – not filled in stamps
    7. embossing powder *I used Silver Pearl by Ranger

    9. heat tool
    10. circle die
    11. adhesives
    12. 6″ piece of string.
    13. die cut word (I used word from Tim Holtz die set)

2.  Cut the white cardstock to 5.5″ by 8.5″ fold to create card base.  Cut left over piece to get one piece at 4 1/8″ x 5 1/4″ and emboss this piece.  Cut second piece at 3 7/8″ x 5″ and cut a circle in the top center.
