- For the card front: Turn the card with the fold at the bottom. Cut Color Me™ stripe paper to cover the front and place on the craft sheet. Place stencil tape along the inside edge of the first stripe, then ink that stripe gold. Wipe off the excess tape with a paper towel, then remove the tape. Skip a stripe and place tape along both edges of the third stripe. Ink this stripe silver. Continue isolating stripes with tape and inking them silver or gold, leaving some white stripes.
- Cut out the Color Me™ text tag and use the eye shadow applicator to ink the outer border gold. Stamp “just for you” on the tag in black, then mat on gold paper with 1/32" borders. Punch a hole in the tag, then thread an 8" ribbon through it. Glue the ribbon to the striped paper, 1" from the bottom, leaving the ribbon near the tag unglued. Glue the ribbon ends to the back. Foam tape the tag over the ribbon as shown, 1/4" from the right edge. Glue the paper to the card front.
- Cut 3 3/4" from the corner of the Color Me™ lace paper. Ink the lace area silver. Mat on gold paper, leaving 1/16" borders along the corner design edges and 1/2" border along the longest edge. Fold under the 1/2" border and glue it to the upper inside back edge, centering the paper and letting the corner fold over the front. Trim the side edges even with the card. Glue two flowers to the tag as shown.
- For the inside: Cut 6 1/2"x3 3/4" Color Me flowers paper with the wide border along the top. Mat the long edges on gold paper with 1/16" borders. Glue ribbon across the paper, 1/2" from the bottom, and glue the ends to the back. Glue the paper to the inside, covering the flap edge along the top. Cut out the Color Me™ text label and ink the borders silver. Stamp “thank you”, a butterfly, and a swirl in black as shown. Mat on Gold paper with 1/16" borders, then glue over the ribbon center. To close the card, bring the bottom up and fold the flap over it, tucking the point under the ribbon near the tag.
