Step 1:  Fold a 7" x 10" piece of Deep Purple cardstock in half to form an A7 card
Step 2: Cut a 4" x 4 3/4" piece of the Charmed I'm Sure paper, edge with 100, adhere to the card front near the top edge, make sure the ruler pattern is going the right direction
Step 3: Cut a 3 3/4" x 4 3/4" piece of the Brews and Potions paper, edge with 100, adhere to the card front under the top paper, watch direction of pattern, adhere a 5/8" x 4 3/4" piece of the purple side of Brews and Potions (edged with 100) across the seam
Step 3:  Tape the Framed Witch stencil to a 4 1/2" x 5 1/2" piece of Brews and Potions paper (striped images side) with removable tape
Step 4:  Use a palette knife and paste spreader to apply Matte Black Embossing Paste over the design, remove stencil and place in water for cleaning later, let paste dry
Step 5: When the paste is dry, use the Fitted Frames die size R to cut the Witch, and, the matching frame (from the purple side of a 4 1/2" x 5 1/2" piece)
Step 6: Edge both frames with the 100 marker and adhere together, wrap an orange ribbon around the lower part of the witch image and tie a bow
Step 7:  Use foam tape to add the frames to the card
