- For the card front: Turn the card with the fold on the left and cover the front with pink cardstock. Cut 4¾"x6¼" Color Me™ Chocolate flowers paper and place on a protected surface. Use the pens to color the daisies CT1, then use CT2 to shade near the centers, blending the colors together. Color the daisy centers with TN7. Color the apple blossoms with PP5 and shade the center areas with DR3. Color the leaves with DG2, then color the shaded areas with DG4. Color the swirls with PP3. When dry, glue centered on the front.
- Cut 5"x1⅜" Color Me™ Chocolate striped paper and color the widest stripe with PP3. Mat the upper edge on pink cardstock with a 1/16" border. Punch a 5"x1" pink cardstock strip and glue to the striped paper, extending ¼" below the lower edge as a mat. Glue ribbon across the strip, just below the upper edge, and glue the ends to the back. Glue the strip to the front, 1⅛" from the top.
- Cut out the 2¼"x3¾" Color Me™ Chocolate tag. Color the inner frame with CT1 and the upper area with PP3 and DG2. Stamp “the best thing…” on the tag. On the “I (heart) you” stamp, cover the words with cellophane tape, then ink the heart. Remove the tape and stamp the heart below the sentiment. Color the heart with PP3, then mat the tag on green cardstock with 1/16" borders. Foam tape to the center front. Make a bow with four loops and tie the center with thread. Glue just left of the tag, then place a flower as shown.
- For the inside: Cut out the 3¾"x3¾" Color Me™ Chocolate label and stamp “it takes a long time…” at the upper left. Color the flowers, leaves, and swirls as for the front, then color the inner frame with PP3. Glue to the inside, ¾" from the top. Knot a 3" ribbon, trim the ends, and glue to the label at the lower right.
