Instructions: The ready side fold card measures 6″ by 8″. Choose the paper from the designer paper collection and cut it using the outer most die of Eyelet Rectangle & Basics Die. Also cut a piece of vellum with the same die and further cut a honeycomb background using Sweet as Honey Die, aligning the same multiple times. Glue the vellum piece with an adhesive that dries clear on the edges of the printed paper and cut a from with the help of 4th largest die from Eyelet Rectangle & Basics Die. Discard the vellum from the centerpiece of pattern paper forming a vellum frame. Layer the frame using glue dots on the ready card base and glue the window piece directly.
