Designer Tip: Follow the instructions on the template to trace, score and cut one center panel and 2 outer panels from black cardstock. Fold on the scored lines and assemble by gluing one outer panel on each side of the center panel. Trace and cut the inner mat pieces from Mystic Garden light blue/black dots paper and black/butterflies paper and glue centered on the appropriate panels as shown. Front: Cut a 4”x5 1/2" Mystic Garden floral/bird collage paper and ink the edges black. Place on the front of the card, even with the right side. Glue only the center of the paper in place. Add strips of Pink Glitter Tape beneath the edges of the paper on the top, left, and bottom edges, leaving a 1/16” black card border. Cut a 3” length of Citrine Glitter tape and trim the end in a “V”. Stamp “enjoy the little things” on the glitter tape with SurfaceZ ink. Mat on black cardstock and foam tape on the left side of the card front. Punch 1/8” circles from Citrine Glitter Tape and place on the flower centers on the background paper. Use 3/4” green crepe ribbon to tie a bow. Zot™ the bow as shown. Left & Right outer panels: Glue a 3 7/8”x5 7/8” Mystic Garden black/butterflies paper centered on the left outer panel. Repeat for the right outer panel. Cut varied lengths of all 3 colors of glitter tape and trim the right end of each piece into a “V”. Place on black cardstock, evenly spaced and even at the left side. Trim the edges with thin borders, as one piece. Stamp “Everything grows better…” centered on the tapes, masking the excess words to stamp 1 line on each color of tape. Glue on the left outer panel as shown. Repeat for the right outer panel using the “EVERY garden grows a little MAGIC” stamp as shown. Add remaining glitter tapes on the center panels as shown. Stamp butterflies on patterned paper and cut them out. Foam tape in place as shown. Place 1/8” Citrine glitter tape circles on some of the butterfly paper center panels as desired. Use 1/8” wide pink grosgrain ribbon to tie 2 bows. Zot™ the bows in place.
