- Trim your card to a 5” square with the fold at the top. Cut a 3 1/4” square out of the center of the front flap, making a large window. Cover the flap with blue texture paper, trimming out the window to fit.
- Take the Sizzle heat tool and install the small sharp tip in the end, screwing it in place. Turn on the Sizzle to high and set it on the included stand to let it warm up for about 5 minutes. Place a piece of paper tex on a ceramic tile or other heat-proof surface (the tool gets up to 925 degrees Fahrenheit). Place the squares grid metal stencil on the paper tex over the tile. Place some stencil tape on two sides of the stencil to lightly hold it to the paper tex. With the Sizzle, carefully trace around the metal stencil, melting the paper tex in the shape of the stencil. Remove the tape to continue around the edges of the stencil. Once all edges have been traced, turn off the Sizzle and place it on its stand to cool. Remove the stencil and paper tex, which is now in the shape of the square grid (window). Place the window on scrap paper and color in with Spectrum Noir pen TB6. Glue the edges to the opening on the front of the card. Zot™ a small pink crepe bow to the right side of the window as shown.
- For the inside: Cover the inside with pink texture. Glue 5”x3/4” of blue texture across the bottom. Place the flower vase stencil on white cardstock and trace all shapes with a mechanical pencil (or very sharp pencil). Remove the stencil. Color in your traced shapes with Spectrum Noir pens with the following colors: vase: TB1 & TB3, flower petals: PP3 & PP5, flower centers: CT4, and stems: DG3.
- Stamp “With Love” on 1”x7/8” of white cardstock with Jet Black StazOn®. Mat on blue texture with 1/16” borders. Glue to card 3/4” from the right and 1” from the bottom, so that it shows through the bottom left square of the window with the card closed.
