Designer Tip: Fold the Frame Die-cut card on the scored lines, each into a mountain fold. Now refold the innermost scored lines across the center triangles into valley folds. You should now have a 3-dimensional frame with the 4 inner triangles inside, pointing toward the center. Use the paper pattern to trace the shape onto Floral Fantasy ivory/brown textured flourishes paper. Cut out the shape and glue it even with the front of the frame. Cut a 5”x1/4” strip of Floral Fantasy aqua/ivory textured flourishes paper and glue across the frame, even with the bottom. Cut a 5”x1/4” strip of Floral Fantasy teal flourishes paper and glue it even with the top of the aqua/ivory textured flourishes paper. Add Brown Thin Lines Dazzles™ on the inner and outer edges of the frame. Cover one of the 3 1/2" cardstock squares with Floral Fantasy aqua textured paper and add Brown Thin Lines Dazzles™ on the edges of the square. Add Ultra Clear Tape to the flat triangles at the center of the frame. Align the square on the triangles, with the edges of the square even with the valley fold of each triangle. Use the cosmetic sponge to apply Timber Brown ink to the Floral Fantasy Foiled Fancies: flower cluster with leaves, swirl frame, single flower with leaves, 1 medium and 3 small butterflies. Let dry, then sand the surface of each piece with the sanding block until the embossed areas are silver. Add Silver Stickles to the center of each flower, the body of each butterfly, and on the swirl frame as shown. Let dry. Foam tape the flower cluster with leaves centered on the square inside the frame. Tape the swirl frame centered on the frame of the card. Foam tape the medium butterfly and 1 small butterfly angled on the lower right corner of the frame. Ink Tiny Words & Phrases Dazzles™ “Thanks” with Timber Brown ink and let dry. Place the word near the upper right corner of the frame. Use 1/4" wide aqua glimmer ribbon to tie a bow. Zot™ the bow on the lower left corner of the frame. Inside: Open the card. Cover the remaining 3 1/2" cardstock square with aqua floral paper from the Floral Fantasy floral corner sheet. Add Brown Thin Lines Dazzles™on the edges. Tape the square on the inside, aligned with first square, over the inner-most triangles. Cut a 5” square from Floral Fantasy aqua textured flourishes paper and glue it on the inside. Cut a 3 1/2" Floral Fantasy ivory/brown textured flourishes paper and mat it on teal flourishes paper with 1/4" borders. Glue it centered on the aqua flourishes paper. Add Brown Thin Lines Dazzles™ on the edges of the ivory/brown square. Ink Dazzles™ ”You’re the best” with Timber Brown ink and let dry. Place the words on the lower right portion of the ivory/brown square. Add the remaining Foiled Fancies near the words as shown.
