Designer’s Tip: Paint the embossed details first, and let the paint thoroughly dry before rubbing embossed image with black SurfaceZ ink pad. This will enhance the details on the painted images.



  1. Place the card fold at the top and cover with Unforgettable blue diamond paper. Ink edges black. Emboss Post Card folder onto both the blue and yellow Shimmer Sheets.
  2. Cut out the blue post card image and paint the leaves and stamp star with Mowed Lawn Distress Paint and the flowers in the background with Salt Ocean centers and Picked Raspberry edges. Let dry. Rub the surface of the SurfaceZ black inkpad over the embossed image. Place gold glitter glue on the painted flower centers. Let dry.
  3. Cut out the “Post Card” banner and 2 foreground flowers from the Yellow Shimmer Sheet. Paint the yellow flower edges and centers with Salty Ocean. Place a dot of Picked Raspberry on the flower centers. Let dry. Rub the cut out pieces with the surface of the ink pad and foam tape to the blue Post Card as shown.
  4. Mini Tag: Cut ivory cardstock to ½”x3/4” and cut the top corners away. Ink edges black and place “Hi” Black Tiny Words & Phrases Dazzles™ on the tag. Use ¼” wide sheer blue Unforgettable Ribbon to make a bow and Zot( along with the tag to the bottom right corner as shown. Glue the blue post card to the center of the card.
