Designer's Tip: I love that the Papier Tole can be used in many ways other than the traditional way. Here I've used it the traditional way for the focal, but I split up different layers of other Papier Tole images on the sheet to create the border along the top and on the back inner panel of the card.
- For the Front: Use the paper patterns from the package insert to cut the exact shapes to fit your card. To do this, cut out the patterns, trace them with pencil on your chosen paper, then cut out and glue to their corresponding blank panels. Assemble the die cut card by folding along the score lines to look like the shutter card on the package.
- Open the assembled card flat. For the left panel, cover the large panel with teal and the small panel with red/teal floral. For the middle section, cover the top and bottom with red/teal floral and the middle with solid teal. For the right section, cover the large section with teal/yellow tile and the small section with red/teal floral.
- Close the card. Stamp "I (heart) you" on the Papier Tole tag and glue to the center. Assemble the remaining Papier Tole layers with foam tape. Punch out a few of the pink and yellow flowers from the Papier Tole and glue across the top to make a border. Trim off excess. Glue a 3/4" wide strip of yellow across the bottom, 1/4" from the bottom. Trim excess. Cut a 3/4" long slit along the fold on the right side, about 1/4" from the bottom of the card. Thread through long pieces of pink dot and red swirl sheer ribbons and tie them in a knot ending at the left side. Zot™ the knot to the card and trim ends at an angle.
- Inside: With the card closed, trace a light line on the inside panel to the right of the tag. Open the card to see the line. Stamp the three greetings to the left of the line, then erase the line. Glue a small red flower to the upper right corner. Glue the long floral border piece to the last panel along the right side as shown.
