Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall...


To make card base, cut a 2-7/8"  x 11-7/8" piece of card stock...score at 2-3/8" intervals.  Each season scene is stamped on a 2" x 2-1/2" piece and mounted on a black piece that's just 1/16" larger on each side.  Before you glue each scene onto the card...cut a 14" piece of ribbon...use double stick tape to adhere it to the top panel...allow 4-1/2" of the ribbon to stick out of the right side of the card.  Accordian fold your card and glue your scenes on.  All images of Emi are from MC-24 (Tea Time).

Snowflake stamps are from MC-9 (Snowflakes)

Branch and Cherry Blossom stamps are from CL-11 (Keiko).

Cloud stamp is from CL-2 (Happy Thoughts) and Sun stamp is from CL-6 (Sunny Days)

Fall leaves are from MC-7 (Thanksgiving)
