Designer’s Tip: Use contrasting colors to make your card really pop.



  1. Place the card fold at the top. Cut the card down to fit the note width, 6”x5”. Glue a 6” x1” piece of black/yellow paper to the bottom edge. Cover the remaining card with gray dot paper.
  2. Mat a 6”x1/2” strip of yellow/white paper with black cardstock, leaving 1/16” borders. Glue between the seam between 2 papers. Wrap a length of Baker’s Twine around the card front and tie a bow.
  3. Glue the scalloped gray dot Note flush with the top edge of the card. Trace flower pattern 1E onto the back of the black patterned paper, 1B onto yellow/white and 2D onto gray dot. Cut out and layer with foam tape on the left side of the Note. Place a Jewel flower Dazzles™ at the center. Place “Happy Birthday” Dazzles™ on the right.
  4. Inside: Glue a 6”x1” black/yellow border on the bottom inside back. Top with a matted yellow/white 6”x1/2” with black cardstock. Foam tape a 2D flower shape to the left side of the border. Place a Jewel flower Dazzles™ at the center.
