How To:
1. First cut your Very Vanilla cardstock to 8 1/2” x 5 1/2”. This will produce two equal halves from a regular 8 ½” x 11” piece.
2. Score cardstock at 4 ¼” using Simply Scored tool or a Bone Folder and fold evenly in half.

3. Ink the curlicue design well with black StazOn, stamp along edge of card front. Ink the square emblem design well and stamp in the middle of the other side.

4. Align the black plastic right angle and bottom left corner of the imaging sheet with the right side of the card where you want the flower emblem to be.

5. In classic ink or marker, stamp the flower emblem on the shiny side of the imaging sheet that comes with the Stamp A Majig. Use classic ink which is water soluble and will rinse off the imaging sheet under the tap. The ink will not rinse off as well if you stamp on the textured size of the sheet.

6. Now you have your place marker on how to line up the flower emblem. Move the stamped imaging sheet exactly where you want the flower emblem. Put the black plastic right angle, in an upside down T direction, to the bottom left corner of the imaging sheet.

7. Ink up the flower image with black StazOn. 

8. Remove the imaging sheet and put the corner of the stamp, not yet pressing down, into the right angle, press down to stamp.

9. Repeat the alignment for the other flower emblem.

10. Using the In Color markers ink the small flower and stamp decoratively around the curlicue. Color in the flower emblems if you wish. Stamp the words.

11. Paper pierce the centers of each emblem and insert a brad with filigree ring.
