Designer's Tip: To "fill in" the large opening with silver linen paper, I carefully cut out the opening in the card topper and glued it over the silver linen. I think it looks great along with the gold and copper Smooch Inks.

- For the Front: Place the card with the fold on the left. Cover the card with silver linen paper. Place the gears/clocks card topper on your cutting mat and use a craft knife & ruler to trim 1/16" off of each of the 4 sides of the card topper. Now, Carefully cut around the large round area and remove that piece. Glue the card topper to the silver linen card front. Color in the various clocks and gears using Gold Lamé and Copper Smooch inks and let dry.
- Cut out the clock blank label. Use your computer to print out "It's that time again" on a blank sheet of paper. Hold the paper up to a light source and tape the label over the words so that they land in the middle of the label. Run through your printer again to print onto the label. Color the clock and gear parts of the label with the Smooch Inks as shown. Foam tape the label to the card 1/4" from the right and 1 1/4" from the bottom. Use Zips to attach a 3 3/4" length of 1/2" wide rust-colored sheer swirl ribbon going from the top of the label to the top of the card. Trim excess. Tie a knot with sheer ribbon and brown grosgrain ribbon, trimming the ends in a V shape. Zot to the top of the label as shown.
- For the inside: Cut 2 1/2" x 4 7/8" of silver linen paper and mat on black cardstock with a 1/16" border along the top and bottom. Glue to card 1 1/2" from the top. Cut out the "Time to Celebrate!" label and color it in with Smooch inks as shown. Glue to the center of the silver linen piece. Cut out the clock on the labels sheet and color in with Smooch inks. Cut in half horizontally, gluing the top half above and the bottom half below the silver linen strip as shown.
