  1. print out your digi stamp in draft quality, heat emboss and put at least overnight to ensure it is dry
  2. mat piece of blue card 7.75"x7.75" onto my base white card
  3. using my BSC or a circle cutter I cut our two circles 1st = 7"x7", the 2nd = 6"x6"
  4. distress around the circle edges with scissors and ink around the edges with blue ink, I used stormy sky distress ink the 6"x6" circle I embossed too
  5. I cut out a die shape in blue card of a suitable size to fix my image too.
  6. I cut two more circles, one in blue card and one in white suitable for my sentiment.
  7. I assembled my card
  8. using the above listed copics I coloured my image.
  9. I then cut my image out on my BSC leaving a 3mm edge and the 'direct to cut' option.
  10. After placing my image onto my card I finished it all off with the card candi.

Hope you like my take on using this image, she is such a cutie pie.
