Cutting Out the Sunflower Insert Card
Upload the Sunflower Insert Card into design space.
Select all and ungroup
Select the dotted line and change to a score line from basic cut
Select the score line and the card
and attach them
Then click on the Make It button
The prepare screen will appear
Now if everything looks correct on it, click on the continue button
The next screen will be where you will select the type of card stock you are using. If you do not see the material in your material favorites, click on "browse all materials" to find the weight of cardstock that you are using. For example the light green Cardstock I used is medium weight, you will need to select "Medium Weight"..
Once you have Design Space set, you are now ready to prepare your mat. I used a brayer when placing the Cardstock on the mat, this helps in making sure that the paper is adhered to the mat and will help in keeping the paper from ripping or moving when it is being cut.
Assembling the Sunflower Insert Card
Starting with the card piece
fold it in half on the score line
then insert the insert piece into the card
next take the brown and black sunflower center pieces
put glue on the back of the brown piece and glue it to the black piece
then put foam glue dots on the back of the black center piece and add it to the middle of the sunflower on the card
