- Print the Invitation wording onto the smallest panel of blush pink card.
- Use your tape runner to stick the largest Blush pink card panel onto the largest Storm card panel. Make sure the borders are even.
- Use the tape runner to stick the smallest piece of Storm card on top of the blush pink panel you just stuck into place.
- Turn your invitation over so that it is face down on a flat surface. Run a line of tape across the middle of the invitation. Press your ribbon in place on top of the tape, leaving an overlap of appx. 2.5cm each side. As you press in to place, make sure that it is level.
- Turn the card back around so that it is sitting face up. Use a small amount of tape to stick the overlapping ribbon in to place at the front of the card.
- Use your tape runner to stick the printed invitation panel on top of the invitation, forming the final layer. Make sure to use plenty of tape and press down firmly (especially on top of the ribbon).
- Finally, peel off a row of Horizon Pearl stickers and press in to place on the printed invitation panel
And you’re finished….don’t you feel proud of yourself!!!
