Instructions:

  1. Card front: Place a blank card with the fold on your left. Cover with Emma’s Garden pink floral paper. Ink the edges of 4¼”x4¼” Emma’s Garden solid green tile paper, mat the left and bottom edges on Emma’s Garden tan dot paper, ink the edges and glue at the top right corner of your card. Ink the long edges of 5”x7/8” Emma’s Garden pink dot paper, mat the long edges on Emma’s Garden tan dot paper with 1/8" borders, ink the edges and glue ½” from the bottom of your card. Ink the card edges. Glue a length of ¼” light green glimmer across the pink dot strip. Zot™ on a length of double-loop pink ribbon over the glimmer ribbon.
  2. Ink the edges of a doily and glue onto your card with the left edge on the fold and the bottom edge 1¾” from the bottom of your card. Trim even with the upper and right edges of your card, saving the trimmed pieces for the inside.
  3. Pop out the large round label foil Paper Tole die-cut pieces and ink the edges of each piece. Journal the “Best Wishes Lovebirds” greeting onto the large label as shown, keeping the words at the upper right and the floral artwork at the lower right. Use foam tape to center the label on the doily, and stack the corresponding Paper Tole pieces on the floral artwork as shown. Ink the edges of two small heart die-cuts and foam tape under the edges of the floral stack.
  4. Pop out the birdcage foil Paper Tole die-cut pieces and ink the edges of each piece. Use foam tape to stack the corresponding Paper Tole pieces on the birdcage, and foam tape in place, ¼” from the left side of your card. Zot™ on a glimmer bow and two small pink blossoms, as shown.
  5. Card inside: Ink the edges of 4½”x1½” Emma’s Garden pink dot paper, mat the long edges on Emma’s Garden tan dot paper with 1/8" borders, ink the edges and glue centered on 4½”x3½” Emma’s Garden solid green tile paper, leaving the upper and lower edge of the matted strip unglued. Tuck the saved doily strips under the matted strip as shown. Glue a length of glimmer ribbon across the center, gluing the ends on the back. Glue the piece centered on your card.
  6. Journal “Congrats!” centered on the 3¼”x2” die-cut label, ink the edges and glue centered on the matted piece. Ink the edges of two small heart die-cuts and foam tape below the sentiment. Zot™ on a bow of glimmer ribbon as shown.
