1. Cut cardstock to 5" x 10", fold in half. Finished card will be 5" x 5".

2. From patterned paper, cut (3) blocks in varying sizes. Ink edges.

3. Adhere patterned paper blocks to front of card.

4. Cut patterned paper strip approximately 1/2" wide, trim with decorative scissors. Adhere to lower portion of card.
