Instructions:

  1. Place your card with the fold at the left. Cover the card front with green/ivory herringbone paper. Open the card. Place the right edge of the card front only inside the punch, as far back as it will go. The top of the card is now at the right. Slide the card to the left so the outside edge of the punch is 3/8” from the right edge of the card (measuring from the base of the punch) making sure the card is still as far back as it will go. Now punch the scalloped circle. Use the cosmetic sponge to ink the edges of the scalloped circle and the edges of the card.
  2. Cut a 1”x6 1/2" strip from the blocks paper and ink the edges. Mat the long sides on brown flourishes paper with 1/8” borders. Glue vertically to the card front, 1/2" from the fold. Write or computer print “Happy Mother’s Day!” on ivory/green textured paper (from the floral corner sheet), trim to a rectangle and ink the edges. Mat on brown with 1/8” borders. Glue centered below the punched circle on the card front.
  3. Glue lime mini rick rack across the bottom of the word block and even with the left side of the matted paper strip as shown. Tie a bright pink crepe bow and Zot near the word block as shown. Cut out a tiny butterfly from remaining floral corner paper and glue angled to the word block.
  4. For the pretty little purse: Using the Kimmie’s Cute Clutch purse design on the template, trace and cut out the shape from green/pink flourishes paper. Score and fold the lines for mountain or valley folds as directed on the template. Ink the edges brown. Trace and cut out a “designer label” from ivory/green paper (from the floral corner sheet). Write or computer print “Mom” on the center. Ink the edges and glue centered to the flap of the purse. Add foam tape to the inside and beneath the flap for a more 3-dimensional purse. Place the ends of the 4” length of bright pink sheer ribbon inside the purse and adjust as needed for the handle above the flap. Zot the ends inside to secure.
  5. Cover the inside of the card with brown flourishes paper. Cut a 5”x1” strip from the blocks paper and ink the edges. Glue across the inside, 1 1/4” from the bottom.
  6. Write or computer print “To my Mom, best friend, and favorite shopping companion!” on ivory/green paper. Trim to a rectangle and ink the edges. Glue lime mini rick rack across the bottom edge then mat on brown with 1/16” borders. Mat on ivory/green herringbone paper with 1/4" borders. Ink the edges and glue centered over the strip of blocks paper.
  7. Cut a small butterfly from remaining paper and glue to the word block. Zot knotted bright pink crepe ribbon as shown. Close the card. Place the pretty little purse centered on the brown paper inside, through the opening in the front, then glue in place.
