  1. For the card front: Place the card with the fold on the left. Open the card and cut 3/4 off the right front edge. Cut a piece of brown paper to cover the card front, but dont glue it yet. Cut a 4x6 1/4 piece of the pink squares paper and glue it centered on the brown piece.
  2. Use the Multi-Shaper to create a border along one edge of a piece of 3x6 1/2 brown paper. Trim it to 1 1/4 wide. Cut a 3/4x6 1/2 piece of green/pink stripes and glue the brown border to extend from under the right edge of this strip. Glue this border along the left edge of the pink squares piece. Add three pink mini brads to the border as shown.
  3. Cut out the Love art and mat it on dark pink. Add a heart brad to cover the o. Add a pink regular brad and a brown mini brad to the upper flowers as shown. Glue it to extend from under the border, 1 3/4 from the top edge.
  4. Punch out the white U monogram and cover it with green/pink dots. Mat it on dark pink, then add foam tape to the back. Cut out one of the patchwork tags and trim 1/2 off the end. Punch a border in brown, then glue it to extend from behind the lower end of the tag as shown. Trim the border ends even with the tag sides. Attach the U to the tag, then secure the tag to the pink squares paper with a mini brad as shown.
