    1. Fold a regular 8-1/2" X 11" piece of cardstock in half.
    2. Instruction #1
    3. Do the same thing with a second color cardstock. Use scissors to cut this one in half.

    7. Instruction #4

    10. Place down the embossed half sheet of cardstock and center it on the folded card stock. (Make sure all the edges are decoupaged down completely.)

    12. Use scissors to cut a strip of scrapbook paper of your choice to match the card.
    13. Instruction #7
