Instructions

For the Card Front:

  1. Place the card with the fold at the top, then cover the card front with light blue textured paper and ink the edges brown. Cut a 5 5/8"x3 7/8" rectangle of yellow with blue floral paper and ink the edges brown, then glue centered on the card front, aligning the left edge with the left edge of the card. Cut out the photo corners and glue one each in the top right and bottom right corners of the yellow with blue floral paper, then add one copper mini brad to the top left and bottom left corners of the yellow with blue floral paper.
  2. Cut the quote to a 4 1/8"x1 3/4" rectangle with 1 5/8" of blank space on the left end. Accent with brown and blue decorating chalk and ink the edges. Mat on light blue textured paper, trim the mat to 1/16" and ink the edges. Mat again on blue vellum, trimming the mat to 3/8", and add one copper mini brad to each corner of the quote. Glue the matted quote centered over the yellow with blue floral paper, aligning the left edge of the vellum mat with the left edge of the card.
  3. Cut out the yellow floral tag and glue centered in the blank space to the left of the printed quote. Cut out the “thank you” ribbon fragment and cut it into two separate words. Glue “thank” and “you” separately over the yellow floral tag, as shown. Cut a 3" length of brown Dolcino ribbon and trim the tails at an angle. Knot the ribbon in the center and use a Glue Dot™ to secure the knot to the tab at the top of the tag.

For the Card Inside:

  1. Cut a 2 3/4"x4" rectangle of light blue textured paper and ink the edges brown. Glue inside the card, 3/8" from the right edge and 1/2" from the top and bottom edges. Cut a 1 7/8"x3 7/8" piece of yellow with blue floral paper and ink the edges, then glue 3/4" from the right edge and 1/4" from the top edge of the card, overlapping the light blue textured paper. Cut a 3/4"x2 3/4" strip of blue vellum and glue vertically about 1" from the right edge and 1" from the top edge of the card inside, overlapping the yellow with blue floral paper.
  2. Cut out the quote, accent with brown and blue decorating chalk and ink the edges. Glue the quote 1 1/4" from the right edge and 3/4" from the top edge of the card so the right edge of the quote overlaps the left edge of the blue vellum strip.
