Mount the Burlap background stamp on Block F. Leave it rubber side up on your work surface. Place a ruler across the middle of the stamp. Use the Lemon Lime Twist Marker to draw a straight line across the rubber surface of the stamp on either side of the ruler. Shift the ruler so it is above or below one of the lines you just drew and draw a line on the other side of the ruler. Repeat until you have drawn lines across the entire surface in one direction. Rotate the ruler 90 degrees and repeat drawing lines across the stamp using the Lemon Lime Twist Marker so that you create a grid.
Use the Emerald Envy Marker to draw along side all of the Lemon Lime Twist lines without crossing over them.
Use the Marina Mist Marker to color in the center of each of the squares.
Pick up the stamp and breathe all over it to moisten the ink. Then, stamp it at an angle onto the large white rectangle so it goes off the edges.
Turn the stamped white layer if necessary so that the white edges are along the left and bottom sides.
Mount the scroll work image from the Musical Season Set on Block H. Ink it up with the Marina Mist Ink Pad. Stamp it along the bottom of the white layer so it goes off the right side and overlaps the burlap image just a bit.
Adhere the stamped white layer to the Marina Mist layer and then to the front of the Emerald Envy card.
Mount the drummer boy image from the Musical Season Set on Block D. Ink it up with the Marina Mist Ink Pad. Stamp on the 2" x 2-3/4" piece of white cardstock.
Pick out the matching drummer boy framelit from the Musical Instruments Framelits. Place the stamped drummer boy rectangle on the Cutting Pad on top of the Magnetic Platform on the Big Shot. Place the drummer boy framelit on top so it is centered over the image. Place another Cutting Pad on top and run through the Big Shot.
Pick out the treble clef framelit from the Musical Instruments Framelits. Place the Champagne Foil Sheets rectangle on the Precision Base Plate on top of the Platform on the Big Shot. Place the treble clef framelit on top. Place a Cutting Pad on top and run through the Big Shot a couple of times. Use the Die Brush to remove the pieces.
Mount the "Enjoy Your Day" badge from the Badges & Banners Set on Block D. Ink it up with the Emerald Envy Ink Pad. Stamp it along the bottom of the 2" x 3-1/2" strip so the image is pointing up.
Unlock the Best Badge Punch. Holding the punch upside down so you can see the punching area, slide the stamped sentiment badge into the punch. Carefully line up the sentiment badge so it is centered in the punching area. Punch.
Use the Marina Mist Marker to color in the word "Your" and the rays beside it.
Use the Lemon Lime Twist Marker to color in the rest of the words and the edges of the badge.
Without adhering, lay the drummer boy, sentiment badge, and treble clef on the card front to decide on placement. Once you are happy with the placement, adhere the sentiment badge and drummer boy into place using SNAIL. Let the badge overlap the drum a bit and let the right foot of the drummer boy overlap the badge.
Place the treble clef cutout upside down on one side of a Silicone Craft Sheet. Cut a Stamping Sponge into quarters and clamp the triangle edge of one quarter in a large binder clip. Squeeze a small amount of Multipurpose Liquid Glue on one corner of the Silicone Craft Sheet. Dab the sponge into the glue and then lightly onto the back of the treble clef cutout. Flip the treble clef cutout over and adhere it to the card front so it overlaps the drummer boy and the sentiment badge a bit.
Pick out a Dapper Denim heart from the 2016-2018 In Color Glitter Acrylic Shapes. Adhere it to the right side of the sentiment badge at a slight angle with Mini Glue Dots.
