STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

Cut main cardstock base at 8.5"x5.5". Score at 4.25" width-wise. Fold and crease with a bone-folder. Round the opening edges wuth a round corner punch.
Cut a 4"x5.25" cardstock. punch the longer edge with a Martha Stewart Doily Lace Edge Punch. Emboss cardstock lengthwise using D'Vine Swirls Embossing Folder. The folder width is smaller than the cardstock. This is ok because it will not interfere with the Doily Lace you just punch onto the cardstock. Cut a ribbon at 6.25", wrap that across just above the Doily Lace Edge and tape it in the back with Scotch Advance Tape Glider.
Using Hello Kitty Greetings Cricut Cartridge cut out HK2 on page 30 at 3.5". Cut out the following using Relative Size: Base (HK2 key); Shadow (Shadow key + HK2 key); Face, Legs, Flower, Hands (White&Fur/Bow&Nose key + HK2 key); Head Flower, Head Flower Center, Nose (White&Fur/Bow&Nose key + Shift key + HK2 key); Dress, Shirt (Clothes/Clothes key + HK2 key); Flower Center, Flower Stem (Clothes/Clothes key + Shift + HK2 key).
Note: In order to acquire different color for clothing and flowers you must cut two sets for these cuts. I used the silhouette but it's a waist of paper.
Using an Epson Workforce 600 Printer and MS Word - Bradley Hand ITC Font, print out a centiment for the inside of the card. In the paper size setting, set paper size to 4"x5.25". Center your sentiment widthwise using CTRL + E key combination. Center your sentiment Lengh using the ENTER key. Print and cut paper 4"x5.25". Punch the bottom corners of the sentiment for the inside of your card using Marvy Uchida Round Corner Punch. Adhere Scotch Advance Tape Glider to the back of your sentiment and center it onto the inside bottom flap of the card.

Note: Add the glitter once card is fully pieced together to avoid smeering. Place card in a well ventilated area and allow to dry overnight.
Glue the back of the embossed cardstock using Scotch Advance Tape Glider. Adhere cardstock to main base cardstock. Doily Laced edge faces the bottom of card. Card will be Landscape. Cut a another 2" of Michaels School Ribbon and tie a side bow knot onto the ribbon already ahered to the card. Cut the ribbon's edges in banner style.
