·                Apply gold embossing powder to your title chippie and heat emboss.  Once cool, cut from the frame and set aside
·                Give all four of your arches a heavy coat of chestnut ink and then dab randomly with embossing medium.  Sprinkle over your ivory, bronze and gold embossing powder so that they are relatively scattered, and then heat emboss.  Once cool, cut from their frames and set two aside
·                Take the other two and adhere them to a piece of script paper from your carders pack and then carefully cut them out.  Set aside


·                Cut C86 008 down so that you have one piece measuring 11.5 x 4 inches and two pieces measuring 11.5 x 2 inches.  Chalk the edges with chestnut and distress
·                Cut C86 005 down so that you have two pieces measuring 11.5 x 2 inches.  Chalk the edges with chestnut and distress
·                Adhere all five pieces to your base kraft coloured base page as follows: largest piece C86 005 in the centre; two pieces of C86 005 on either side of that and then finally, the last two pieces of C86 008 on either side of that.  You want to leave a border along the top and bottom, which measure approximately ¼ inch
·                Mat your photograph onto a piece of mustard cardstock, distress the edges and adhere it towards the bottom centre of your LO (approximately 1.5 inches from the bottom) using foam tape
·                Adhere two of the arches chippies on either side of the photograph with Tombow – you want it to overlap slightly on either side
·                Fussy cut a few flowers and stems and a dragon fly from C86 004.  Arrange and adhere these on either side of your photograph
·                Grab your other two arch chippies and lay them down horizontally on either side of your photograph – you want to ensure that they are lined up with the bottom edge of the other two arch chippies adhered to your photograph.  Depending on the size of your photo, you may need to trim off the outer edges.  Adhere them with Tombow
·                Adhere your title chippie above your photograph, to the right

·                Finish off by applying glossy accents to the fussy cut flowers
