  1. Trim the card to a 5" square, then cover with the green/gold patterned paper. Attach a gold star brad near the bow on the ribbon punch-out as shown, then glue the punch-out to the card so the ends align with the card edges.
  2. Glue the large tag to the lower left portion of the card, and Zot™ the mini ivory flower with gold mini brad to the end of the tag. Ink the edges of the card front.
  3. For the inside: Ink the left edge of burgundy textured paper, then cover 3" of the right side trimming excess even with card edges. Ink the edges of a 2 1/2"x5" piece of green/gold patterned paper and glue it even with the right edge. Ink the remaining paper edges as needed.
  4. Ink the edges of the punch-out rectangle and glue centered over the papers. Attach a gold star brad over the upper left corner of the punch-out. Add gold mini brads at the top and bottom of the burgundy paper.

Susan's Tip:
Trim the card to a 5" square, then add the red ribbon punch-out for a striking focal point over the green patterned paper.
