Designer Tip: Decorate these pretty Papier Tole flower embellishments with black Jewel Dazzles, then add matching Black Jewel Border Dazzles to the card for added contrast. StazOn® ink dries quickly on the die-cut leaves.
- Trim your card to a 5" square and place with the fold on the left. Cover the top half of the card with green Red Velvet paper. Cover the bottom half with striped Red Velvet paper. Glue a 5"x3/4" Red Velvet tan words paper across the seam as shown. Ink the card edges Jet Black. Add Black Jewel Border Dazzles along the edges of the tan paper, and the top and bottom edges of the card as shown.
- Punch out several sizes of Papier Tole flowers and layer together from large to small with foam tape. Punch out the large green textured leaves and ink the edges. Overlap the leaves and glue near the center of the card along with the layered flower. Embellish the layered flower with Black Jewel Dazzles as shown.
- Stamp "Happy Birthday" on Red Velvet ivory/tan textured paper and trim to a small tag shape. Ink the edges and mat on Red Velvet red/black words paper with 1/16" borders. Glue to the upper left portion of the card. Tie 3/4" wide black crepe ribbon in a knot and trim tails to 1" then Zot near the tag.
- Inside: Cut a 5"x1" green Red Velvet paper and mat the long edges on striped Red Velvet with 1/4" borders. Glue centered across the inside. Add Black Jewel Border Dazzles stickers along the edges of the green paper. Stamp "Celebrate!" on ivory/tan textured paper and trim to a small tag shape.
