Mount the "News Flash" sentiment from the Approaching Perfection Set on Block C. Use the side of the brush tip of the Old Olive Marker to ink up only the words "News Flash" in the block. Use the side of the brush tip of the Blackberry Bliss Marker to ink up the rest of the sentiment. Breathe on the stamp to moisten the ink and stamp it on the vertical white rectangle so it is centered side to side and very close to the bottom.
Pick out the stitched rectangle die from the Stitched Rectangles Dies that cuts out a 1-7/8" x 3-1/8" rectangle.

Run through the machine.

Breathe on the stamp to moisten the ink and stamp it on the top of the sentiment rectangle cut out as close to the top as possible and centered side to side.
Adhere the stamped sentiment/candles rectangle cut out to the front of the card so it overlaps the striped designer paper strip a bit and is about 3/4" from the bottom of the card.
