Instructions
Start with a base of brown cardstock measuring 10cm x 30.5cm, fold in half & score then fold the left  edge to the centre line & score again, next cut a 10cm x 15.3cm background mat.
Place some double sided tape on the front panel as shown & attach the background mat to the base card.
Die cut the Diamond frame on to a piece of A5 white card, cut off the right side & lightly blend with Distress Ink - Frayed Burlap.
From the Pen & Ink paper pad cut a background panel to 9.7cm x15cm distress the edges & blend with Distress Ink - Frayed Burlap, adhere the cut piece of diamond frame using glue only along the border edges. Attach a piece of ribbon along the bottom then attach the panel to the card front. 
Base Stopper
  • Cut a 4.2cm x 5.8cm panel from a leftover piece of the same paper used as background(NB: pattern will be in different direction) distress & blend the edges.
  • Cut a 4.6cm x  9.2cm mat from the coordinating paper pad.
  • Cut a 5.2cm x 10cm mat from the brown cardstock.
Adhere the above three panels to each other leaving an even border & attach to the inside base .
 Apply some 100mm x 20mm double sided tape to the A5 - White Card die cut the lamp post (a shim maybe needed due to the thickness of the tape & card) Peel the backing off the tape side, using acraft tray apply the black glitter & tap off excess.
(NB; with nesting dies No.1 being the smallest)

  • Die cut the No.3 Tag from the same paper as the base stopper mat & tie a piece of ribbon through the hole. 
  • Using foam tape mat the "Best wishes" sentiment(from the paper pad) onto a piece of brown cardstock & place more foam tape on the back to give extra height.
  • Distress the edges of the bingo card(from the collectables pack) & attach to a brown mat also distressing the edges.
  • Place some foam tape to the back of the clock(from the collectables pack) & the "for someone very special" sentiment (from the paper pad).
Attach the tag  under the diamond frame, then attach the bingo card & clock over the top on an angle. Mount the lamp post with foam tape & place to the left of the clock, next adhere one flower & two leaves from the Little Birdie Renae - Dusty Rose flower pack.
Last mount the "Best wishes" sentiment to the card front & the "for someone very special" sentiment to the base stopper.
