Designer’s Tip: The pink/black dotted frame with white oval center can be used together in one piece as I did for this card, or you could punch out the center and back the frame with patterned paper depending on your project.



  1. Place your card with the fold at the left. Cut two 5”x1/2” pink/black dots strips and glue even with the top and bottom edges of the card front. Cut a 5”x5 3/4" teal patterned paper and glue centered on the card front. Punch out the ivory scalloped border die-cut and glue even with the right side of the card, trimming the edges evenly. Ink the edges of the card black.
  2. Punch out the large pale yellow/ivory banner die-cut and glue centered on the card front 1/16” from the bottom. Punch out the pink/black dots frame with white oval center in one piece and glue centered over the banner 2” from the bottom. Cut out the pale yellow “Life is a JOURNEY” banner and glue to the left side of the white oval and pink/black frame, wrapping the left edge of the excess banner onto the back of the card, just left of the words. Foam tape a small pink heart on the right side of the banner.
  3. Punch out the tricycle and foam tape centered on the large pale yellow/ivory banner die-cut and white oval with frame as shown. Punch out flower die-cuts and foam tape as shown. Foam tape a pink heart die-cut centered on the large wheel of the tricycle. Use 3/8” wide light blue satin ribbon to tie a small bow. Zot™ on the tricycle as shown.
  4. Inside: Punch out the blue circle die-cut with pink and tan banners across it, and the two black decorative flourishes die-cuts. Layer the black flourishes beneath the circle die-cut centered on the inside. Glue “ENJOY the ride” centered on the banner portion of the circle die-cut. Glue heart and flower die-cuts as shown. Zot™ light blue satin ribbon in place.
