First, I stamped the image on white cardstock. Then I took the VersaMarker and ran it over the lace edges and embossed it with Iridescent Ice.
Then, I stamped the image again on the Spring Flowers Double Sided Designer Paper and cut it out (minus the lace edges). I adhered it over the stamped image on the white cardstock leaving only the lace showing. On a tiny scrap of the paper, I stamped only the flower part of the slip on the pink side of the paper and glued it onto the slip.
Edges of white cardstock were sponged with close to cocoa ink.
Using the 1/4" rectangle punch, I punched a slit in the top of the white cardstock (I had to do this 2 - 3 times to get the hole wide enough for the ribbon) and inserted a piece of ribbon, folded it back, and adhered it on the back -- forming a tab at the top of the cardstock. The white cardstock was then layered on a piece of chocolate chip cardstock.
I folded a piece of the double sided paper up at the bottom to form a pocket. I used the rectangle punch (like above) to make slits for the ribbon. I thread the ribbon through the holes and then adhered a piece of cameo coral cardstock that I had cut by hand to resemble a buckle.
The main image is simply "slipped" (pun intended)into the pocket created by the double sided paper.
I used the paper piercing mat from the mat pack in the crafter's tool kit to measure exactly where the eyelets should go in the chocolate chip cardstock.
The double sided paper pocket is adhered onto the chocolate chip cardstock (the piece with the eyelets) and then that is adhered onto the barely banana base.
