Artfully Asian Day Planner Cover

Materials needed:
Blender pens
Mellow Moss Marker
Cranberry Crisp Classic Ink Pad
Going Grey Classic Ink Pad
Basic Black Ink Pad

Card stock:
Cranberry Crisp cut 6½" 7 3/8"
Very Vanilla cut 4 1/4" x 2"
Basic Black cut 4 5/8" x 2 3/8"

Stamp Set:
Rough Texture Jumbo Wheel
Artfully Asian
Expressive Flexible Phrases

Using the Rough Texture Jumbo Wheel stamp over your Cranberry Crisp piece of card stock.
Ink up the Linen Background stamp with Going Grey. Two pieces of the Very Vanilla Card stock will fit on here so if you're partnered up with anyone you can stamp both at the same time. Place the Linen stamp rubber side up after inking it and set your Very Vanilla piece on top. Place a piece of copier paper over the top of it and press down, rubbing across the entire piece of Very Vanilla. Remove the copier paper and then remove your stamped piece of Very Vanilla. Take the flower stamp from the Asian Art set and using the Basic Black ink, stamp the image on top of the Very Vanilla Card stock. Color in the leaves with the Mellow Moss marker. Take the Cranberry Crisp ink pad and squeeze the lid to get some ink on it. Taking the Blender Pen pick up some of the ink off the lid and fill in your flowers and berries. Take the Expressive Flexible Phrases stamp and using the Basic Black ink pad stamp your words onto the Very Vanilla piece. Gently fold the Bashful Blue piece of cardstock in half but do not crease. The purpose of this is to help you find the center of the front of the Day Planner so you can place the layers. Tape the Very Vanilla piece to the black layer and then tape the black layered piece onto the Cranberry Crisp piece. Decide which cover you'd like to display on your Day Planner and insert into the plastic cover. Be careful not to force it.
