Designer Tip: 1) Place your card with the fold on the top and cover it with Letterpress red/black patterned paper. Ink the edges black. Use the Design Tool Kit #7 Book Plate Label template to trace the shape onto brown/tan patterned paper. Cut it out and mat on black cardstock with 1/16" borders. Glue it even with the top of the card. 2) Trace the "Bracket Label" shape onto black cardstock and cut it out. Cut a 6"x5" piece of double-sided adhesive and peel off 1 side of the backing. Place the cardstock shape on the exposed adhesive and trim the edges evenly. Sprinkle the adhesive shape with Manchester Tart Mega Flakes and press lightly in place. Use the scoochy foam to remove the excess Mega Flakes from the surface of the shape. Mat on black cardstock with 1/16" borders. Foam tape it centered on the brown label on the card front. 3) Place Stacked Flourishes Dazzles on the gilded label as shown. Add remaining Flourishes Dazzles, Tiny Words & Phrases Dazzles, and Gold Jewel Dazzles as shown. Tie a black bow and Zot on the lower left side of the card as shown.
