Thinking of you — By: Susan Cobb

Supplies:

Instructions

  1. Trim the card to a 5" square and turn so the fold is at the top. Cut a 5" blue/green/orange/yellow striped paper square and add orange brads to the corners. Glue to the card front with the stripes horizontal. Place the stencil on yellow textured paper and trace around the outside edge with a pencil. Cut it out, then mat on orange, leaving a 1/16" border. Place the stencil over the yellow circle, tape in place, and use the dark blue chalk to add blue dots around the edge of the circle. Wipe off stencil with a tissue as needed.
  2. Place the flower with stem and leaf over the center of the yellow circle. Use light yellow chalk for the petals, then add some red over it for a pretty orange color. Use yellow orange chalk for the flower center. Use light green for the stem and leaf. Wipe off the stencil, then flip it over and add a second leaf on the other side of the stem as shown.
  3. Write "thinking of you" on the circle with the orange pen. Glue the circle centered on the card front. Add a knotted ribbon near the edge of the circle as shown.
  4. For the inside: Glue a 2 1/2"x5" striped rectangle even with the left side. Use the 5-petal flower image on the stencil to add a chalked orange flower to the left side of the yellow tag, leaving the center of the flower un-chalked. Use the stencil to trace and cut out a 3/8" yellow circle. Chalk the circle yellow orange, and glue it to the center of the flower. Write "on your special day" on the right side of the tag with the orange pen. Add blue chalk to the edges of the tag. Add a ribbon tab to the end of the tag, then glue centered to the inside.
