i measured the paper (7.5 high x 14 wide) and cut it to size. the paper was stuck together with a strip of tape (ensuring that the papers fit on the cardblank to leave an even border around the edge), then the ribbon added over the join. the ribbon needs to be fixed behind the papers before adding them to the cardblank to create a neat finish. i stamped the image onto digicardstock, then die cut it to create a shaped topper. i coloured this fun image with promarkers, picking out the colours from the papers. the image was then matted onto a piece of kraft card die cut with the next sized matching shape. the final touch was die cut numbers, again in kraft card, added on with foam pads to follow the sketch.
