Designer’s Tip: Die cut, stamp, and layer these cute tags and labels as a collection of small focals for the card front. Decorate with tiny shapes and Dazzles™ for fun and sparkle!
- Front: Place your blank card with the fold at the left. Cover the card with The Sweet Life blue stripes/flowers border paper, with the striped border on the left side. Ink the edges dark brown. Cut out the large green/pink flower from the corner of the remaining background paper. Foam tape it on the border, 1 1/2" from the top.
- Die cut the following shapes from The Sweet Life Papers and your die cutting machine: 1 small rectangle tag each from green dots paper and orange/ivory plaid paper; one 2 1/2"x1 1/2" scalloped label from light pink string plaid paper; 1 large rectangle tag each from red plaid paper and white/colorful dots paper; 1 circle label with scalloped ends each from orange/ivory plaid and green dots paper; 1 circle tag each from red plaid paper and orange plaid paper; one 1 7/8”x3/4” scalloped label from red plaid paper; one 1 3/4"x3/4” label from brown/colorful dots paper.
- Stamp the tags and labels with the coordinating images and dark brown ink as shown. Ink the edges of the die cuts that are not stamped. Stamp “Thank You” centered on the small red scalloped label. Arrange the pieces on the card as shown, layering some together with foam tape. Die cut a red star and heart, a pink heart and butterfly, a green butterfly, and an orange flower. Ink the edges or stamp with coordinating images as shown. Foam tape on the pieces as shown. Place Silver Jewel Dazzles™ as desired. Use red/white twine to tie small bows and Zot™ on the top of the tags, or tie a piece through the holes as shown.
- Inside: Cut a 5”x3 1/2" The Sweet Life blue stripes/flowers border paper and ink the edges brown. Glue even with the bottom of the card, with the border across the bottom. Die cut a 2 1/2"x1 1/2" scalloped label from green dots paper and stamp with a coordinating frame. Die cut a 2 5/8”x7/8” label from orange/ivory plaid paper. Stamp a coordinating frame image on the label, then write or computer print “for everything” centered on the right side. Glue the orange label centered on the green one, then glue centered on the blue section of the paper on the card. Die cut and stamp a light pink butterfly and glue angled as shown. Cut out a red flower from remaining border paper and glue on the left side of the labels as shown. Add Dazzles™. Zot™ a red/white twine bow as shown.
