Designer Tip: A beautiful mix of red, green, and dark brown papers and die-cuts create a striking contrast for this card. Foam tape adds dimension.
- Place your card with the fold at the left. Cover the card front with blue/yellow dotted paper. Cover 1 1/2" at the right edge with striped circles paper. Glue a 1/2" wide green strip even with the left edge of the striped circles paper. Ink the edges brown. Punch out the following die-cuts: large yellow circle with red floral border, green floral/yellow tag with butterfly, red/brown butterfly, white swirl, pink/ivory flower, green leaves, 3/4" yellow/red flower, tiny blue flower circle.
- Glue the white swirl die-cut to the card, even with the left side and 3/4” from the top. Foam tape the yellow/red circle die-cut centered over card front 3/4" from the top, overlapping the white swirl. Cut out “THANKS” label and glue over the top right edge of the circle die-cut, adding foam tape beneath the edge to fill the space. Foam tape the green floral/yellow tag centered over the circle, 1” from the bottom. Layer the two flowers together with the leaves and glue/foam tape over the lower left corner of the tag. Foam tape butterfly and tiny blue flower circle in place as shown.
- Cut out “Here’s to YOU” label and foam tape over the top of the tag, tucking the left edge beneath the tag. Tie a blue satin bow and Zot to lower right corner of the tag.
- Cover the inside with blue/yellow dotted paper. Cover the top 1 1/2" with striped circles paper. Glue a 1/2" wide green strip even with the bottom edge of the striped circles paper. Ink the edges brown. Punch out the yellow/green striped frame and remaining white swirl die-cuts and glue centered over the paper with the white swirl tucked beneath the bottom edge of the frame. Glue the red/tan label die-cut centered over the opening of the frame. Cut out “you are too kind” square and foam tape centered over the red/tan label die-cut. Punch out remaining pink/ivory flower, 7/8” yellow/red flower, and leaves die-cuts. Layer the flowers and foam tape over the lower left corner of the frame. Zot a blue satin bow to the upper left corner of the frame.
