  1. Fold a 4-1/4" x 11" piece of Coral Rose cardstock in half to form an A2 card.
  2. Dry emboss the Leopard Skin, Swirls, Fan Pattern, Cathedral Windows Sm, and Houndstooth on 4-1/4” x 5-1/2” pieces of white paper using a rubber embossing mat and die cut machine.
  3. Cut a 1-1/2” x 4-1/2” from one, cut a 1-1/2” x 4” piece from the next, cut a 1-1/2” x 3” piece from TWO different patterns, cut a 1-1/2” x 2” piece from the fifth embossed pattern.
  4. Cut a 1-1/2” x 2” piece of plain white, use the Columns stencil, 1/2” brush and P. Coral ink to create a stripe pattern on this piece.
  5. Use a 1/2” stencil brush and the P. Coral ink to do two other pieces (one larger, one medium), use the Rocket Red to deepen the color a little.
  6. Use a 1/2” stencil brush to add P. Thyme ink to the remaining three pieces so you end up with 3 coral and 3 green patterns.
