Focus on the Memories

Hi y’all!  It’s Susan Lee Rose from @susanleeroseblog, here again to share this cute little card featuring the Focus on God stamp set from Maymay Made It.  I love the cute little camera images!  This stamp set is perfect for card making, but also for Bible Journaling, and documenting your travel.  I also used the Slice of Summer 6” x 6” paper pad from Echo Park Paper Company, which is was perfect for this card!

2. Glue the plaid paper to the bottom of the green dot paper. 



3. Glue the green dot paper to the front flaps of the card base.  



4. Glue the small floral paper to the inside flaps of the card base.  Then glue the solid blue into the center of the inside card base. 



5. To make the belly band, wrap the 1.5” x 11” piece of Kraft cardstock around the outside of the closed card base to see where it needs to be folded.  Make sure it is a little loose to make sure in goes off and on easily.  Glue ends together and let dry.  



6. Using the Espresso Truffle and Desert Sand inks, go around the edge of the belly band  to make it look aged. 



7. Using the Tuxedo Black Memento ink, stamp the camera image and color it in with alcohol ink markers.  Stamp the “LOVE” sentiment with the same ink.  Fussy cut out the camera and the “LOVE” sentiment.  Attach the “LOVE” sentiment onto the lens of the camera image with double sided foam squares.  



8. Attach the camera image to the belly band using double-sided foam squares. 



9. Stamp the inside sentiment to the 5” x 3.75 piece of white cardstock.  After stamping, glue the white cardstock on top of the blue paper on the inside middle of the card.
