Stamps - Friendly Wishes
Ink - Lost Lagoon, Mint Macaron
Cardstock - Pool Party, Mint Macaron, Lost Lagoon
Accessories - Mint Macaron 1" Dotted Lace, dimensionals

1.  Cut cardstock:  Mint Macaron - 3-1/4"x 2-3/4" and 5-1/2"x 4-1/4" card base;  Lost Lagoon - 3"x 2-1/2" and 5-1/4"x 4";  Pool Party - 2-3/4"x 2-1/4" and 5"x 3-3/4"

2.  Stamp sentiment using Lost Lagoon ink.  Add the mat layers behind.

3.  Cut your lace ribbon ONLY after you have used it to frame the matted sentiment!  This gives you more room to make adjustments to your ribbon placement as you go around and after you finish.  Use snail tape runner on all sides of the back of the matted sentiment.  Starting in one corner, lay the lace down, carefully bunching it up in the corner to get the mitred look.  You may need to add more snail to the corner layers to keep them in place.  Go around the card finishing off in the corner where you can hide the beginning of the bottom layer. 

4.  Stamp onto the Pool Party background with Mint Macaron ink.  Adhere to Lost Lagoon cardstock and then to Mint Macaron card base.

5.  Layer sentiment with dimensionals onto the stamped Pool Party.
