  1. Cut blue cardstock to 8.5" x 8.25". Score at 4.125" and fold to make a slimline card. Set aside.
  2. Use Tuxedo Black Memento ink to stamp the camper and the van onto Solar White cardstock.
  3. Fussy-cut, color with Copic markers, and edge with a black marker. Set aside.
  4. Trace the rolling hills from the Acetate Hills Masks/Stencil set onto a scrap of cardstock and fussy-cut.
  5. Cut a piece of 9" x 12" Mixed Media paper to 4.5".
  6. Place the rolling hills Acetate Mask on the base of the mixed media paper using magnets to secure both to the STAY-tion.
  7. Sponge or brush Periwinkle Prism ink over the mask onto the top part of the image panel to create the sky.
  8. Position the fussy-cut scrap paper mask over the sky part of the image panel secured with magnets. 
  9. Sponge or brush three colors of green Prism ink to create the grassy rolling hills.
  10. Put a strip of the Washi tape onto a self healing or glass mat. Use an exacto knife to cut away the top part of the tape.
  11. My ink was still damp, so I used some Premium Craft Glue along the bottom edge, then adhered the Washi tape over it, which securely glued it where desired.
  12. Use the second largest die from the Essential Rectangles Slimline die to cut the image panel, including the Washi tape.
  13. Use magnets to secure the image panel die-cut to the base of a stamping platform and position the van and the camper facedown on the image panel. Press the lid of the platform onto the back of the stamps and lift the lid.
  14. Use Onyx Black VersaFine Ink to ink the stamps. Stamp onto the image panel, then heat set.
  15. Adhere the colored fussy-cut van and camper onto their counterparts on the image panel.
  16. Use the largest die from the Decorative Squared Rectangles Slimline die to cut black cardstock. 
  17. Trim pink cardstock to the same size as the interior squares and adhere to the back of the black die.
  18. Adhere the pink/black die-cut to the front of the blue card.
  19. Adhere the image panel as shown.
  20. Adhere the sentiment to complete the card.
