Designer’s Tip: Layer die-cuts together on the wreath for a 3-dimensional look!



  1. Front: Place your card with the fold on the left. Cover the card front with Unforgettable purple textured paper. Cover the bottom 2” with Unforgettable striped paper.
  2. Use your die cutting machine and cutting dies to cut the following pieces from Unforgettable papers: 1 wreath from medium green textured paper; 18 leaf sprigs from light green textured paper and 3 from medium green textured paper; 4 outline roses from blue textured paper and 4 outline roses from pink botanicals paper; 8 rose shadows from ivory/light green textured paper. Layer each outline rose on a shadow and glue together.
  3. Glue the medium green wreath die-cut centered on the purple paper on the card front. Take a pink rose and 3 light green leaf sprigs and arrange on the upper left portion of the wreath, between the swirls. Foam tape the rose and leaves in place as shown. Repeat for a total of 6 roses evenly spaced on the wreath, each with 3 light green leaf sprigs as shown.
  4. Place Silver Tiny Words & Phrases Dazzles™ “Happy Birthday” centered inside the wreath. Add a heart below the words. Use 1/4" wide sheer lilac ribbon to tie a bow. Zot™ in place as shown. Place Silver Thin Lines Dazzles™ on the outer edges of the purple textured paper.
  5. Inside: Cover the bottom 2” of the card with Unforgettable striped paper. Use the Tiny Tags & Little Labels template to trace a Bracket Label B shape onto purple textured paper. Cut it out and mat on Unforgettable medium green textured paper with 1/16” borders. Glue centered on the card, 1/4" above the striped paper. Arrange the 2 remaining roses and medium green leaf sprigs together on the left side of the label and glue in place. Place Dazzles™ “Celebrate!” centered on the label. Zot™ knotted lilac ribbon as shown.
