Step Nine. Adhere the vellum stitched rectangle in the middle of the 3 1/2″ stitched indented rectangle. Adhere the leaf bunch to the bottom middle of the 3 1/2″ stitched indented rectangle. The leaf bunch will sit overtop of the vellum piece. Adhere the other two single leaves as desired around the leaf bunch.

Step Ten. Staple the fishtail 3/8″ from the bottom and all the way to the left hand side of the 3 3/4″ fitted indented rectangle. Adhere the Hello word to the middle of the fishtail.

Step Eleven. Foam square the 3 3/4″ fitted indented rectangle to the middle of the 4″ stitched indented rectangle.

Step Twelve. Cut a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock that measures 5 1/4″ x 8″, score at 4″. Adhere the cardfront to the cardbase.
