Designer's Tip: Wrap your matted text card with ribbon for a “chocolate box” look.
- Have your card open with fold horizontal. Trim 3/4” from top edge. Trim 1/4” from lower edge. Close card. Cover front with text paper. Punch lower edge of front only, starting at left side and sliding your card along until you see the silver base pattern through your first punched holes.
- Cut a 6 1/2”x3 3/4” brown dotted paper. Punch lower edge, and place even with top edge of card. Cut a 6 1/2”x3 1/4” ivory dotted paper with border artwork on top edge. Punch lower edge, and place even with top edge of card.
- Stamp “You’ve got Me” centered under the top border artwork. Stamp a flourish to the right and left of your text. Cut a 6 1/2”x1 1/2” border artwork paper to match the artwork at the top of your card. Use X-acto® knife to cut around lower edge of black scrollwork. Foam tape to top edge of card, matching artwork. Tie a bow with 12” length of ribbon. Zot™ onto border artwork, above text stamp. Place small Jewel Dazzles™ on each flourish, and on each scallop of ivory paper border.
- For the inside: Cover with ivory paper. Punch lower edge. Punch lower edge of a 6 1/2”x2” suede paper. Place on back of lower edge of card with 1/2” exposed. Cut a 6 1/2”x1 1/4” striped paper. Punch lower edge, and place on fold line. Punch upper and lower edges of a 6 1/2”x2 3/4” suede paper. Center on ivory paper. Stamp “& I’ve got Chocolate” on a 2 1/4”x1 1/4” ivory paper. Ink edges. Mat on ivory paper with a 1/8” border and Zot™ four 1 1/2” lengths of ribbon around corners. Foam tape to center of suede strip. Stamp two cupcakes on ivory paper. Cut around image, leaving 1/16” border. Mat on text paper with 1/16” border. Foam tape on either side of “Chocolate” text. Add a Jewel Dazzle to each cherry and on each scallop of ivory paper border.
