3. Using the Stylish Dies and the 2nd and 3rd largest Circle Dies, cut out 2 of the frames from the 3 x 3 Soft Succulent pieces (Note: Very important that you cut them together by layering one piece over the other and run both together through the Die Cut machine- You will need to run it through back and forth a few times as it’s cutting through 2 pieces.) Glue piece together lining up carefully.

Assemble:  5.  Adhere the Basic Black mattes to front and back of panels.

7.  Adhere the Die cut circle from DSP die cuts “Lookin Sharp” onto the fancy Soft Succulent Circle.
8.  Adhere both to the stitched black circle.
9.  Adhere these to the front right panel being careful to only add adhesive where it will be touch the panel.
10. Next adhere soft succulent frames to the left front panel lining up with circle on right panel (again making sure to only put adhesive where it will be touching the left front panel only.)
