Designer Tip:When coloring with Spectrum Noir pens I prefer to use Silky Papers (Glossy White cardstock) which is glossy and makes blending with pens easy. When stamping with Chalk Ink I used regular white cardstock.
- Cut the card to 5” square and place the fold at the top. Cover card with Grapefruit orange dot paper. Ink edges of 1 3/4”x5” Grapefruit orange stripe paper and glue 1/4” from the right. Round top left and bottom right corners.
