(Use SNAIL Adhesive unless otherwise noted.)

1. Score Very Vanilla card stock at 4-1/4"; fold away from score line to create card.

2. Stamp two label images on Very Vanilla card stock -- one in Crisp Cantaloupe and one in Early Espresso.  Cut out images with Artisan Label punch.  Cut center of image ("just for you" and scallop borders above and below) from Early Espresso image and adhere it over the center of the Crisp Cantaloupe image.

3. (Optional) emboss Crisp Cantaloupe card stock with Big Shot and embossing folder.

4.  Use Stampin' Sponge to apply Early Espresso ink around edges of card, Crisp Cantaloupe cardstock, DSP, and label.

5.  Adhere 5-1/8" x 3-7/8" Early Espresso card stock to front of card; adhere Crisp Cantaloupe card stock over Early Espresso; adhere 5" x 1-3/4" Early Espresso card stock over Crisp Cantaloupe; adhere DSP over Early Espresso.

6. Punch two Artisan Labels from Early Espresso card stock.  Cut one in half from top to bottom; cut the second in half from left to right.  Adhere top and bottom pieces of label to back of stamped label so that about 1/16" peeks out at the top and the bottom; adhere right and left pieces of label to back of label so that about 1/16" peeks out on each side.  This creates a mat for the label.  Adhere label to front of card with Stampin' Dimensionals.

That's it!  A simple and elegant card for any occasion.
