You are my Favorite
By: Susan Cobb
Designer’s Tip:To simulate a turned-down paper corner, I cut and folded a square of red cardstock, matted the edge and glued it to the card front.

- Place your card with the fold at the left. Cover the card front with red cardstock and ink the edges black. Cut a 4 3/4"x6 1/4" tan/white hounds tooth paper with black lace border paper with the border at the bottom. Ink the edges black and glue centered to the card front.
- Cut a 1 5/8” red cardstock square and fold in half diagonally. Glue the layers together, then mat the corner edges (not the fold) on black with 1/16” borders. Glue to the card front with the folded edge facing the upper right corner of the card, 1 7/8” from each corner. Cut a 5”x1/4” red strip and mat on black with 1/16” borders. Glue centered across the black lace border of the paper.
- Punch out the #1 image of the flourish Papier Tole embellishment. Punch out the #2 image and foam tape over its matching design. Repeat foam taping each number until the design is complete. Glue the embellishment centered on the card front, slightly overlapping the red corner.
- Stamp “You are my Favorite” on tan/white hounds tooth paper with black ink. Trim to a 2”x1 1/8” rectangle, then trim the corners at one end for a tag shape. Mat on black with 1/16” borders. Foam tape overlapping the red/black strip as shown. Punch out the red/black extra art circle from the Papier Tole sheet and glue to the end of the tag, then add a small piece of foam tape to the outside edge to fill the space. Use the 1/2" wide black grosgrain ribbon to tie a bow. Zot the bow near the tag as shown.
- For the inside—Cut a 4 3/4"x6 1/4" tan/white hounds tooth paper with black lace border at the bottom. Ink the edges black, then glue centered to the inside. Punch out the #1 scrolled label image from the Papier Tole sheet and mat on red with 1/16” borders. Stamp “You are so Loved” on the center and glue centered on the tan/white hounds tooth paper. Cut a 5”x1/4” red strip and mat on black with 1/16” borders. Glue across the black lace border as for the front. Zot knotted black ribbon near the red strip.
