For the Card Front:

  1. Place the card with the fold on the left. Cover the card front with fuchsia textured paper and ink the edges.
  2. Cut a 3 1/4"x5" piece of tan dotted paper, including the pink striped border on the left. Ink the edges of the paper, then mat on bronze glimmer and trim to 1/16". Sand three pink mini brads and attach them along the top right edge of the striped border. Stamp a botanical pattern at the bottom of the paper. Sand the top of a pink brad and use it to attach a pink silk flower at the top of the stamped botanical. Glue the paper centered on the card front.
  3. Glue the “birthday wishes” tag at an angle extending off the bottom edge of the card front. Knot together two lengths of pink grosgrain ribbon. Zot™ the knot to the tag's tab and glue the loose ribbon across the card front. Trim the ribbon ends even with the card edges.

For the Card Inside:

  1. Ink the edges of a 3 1/4"x5" piece of tan dotted paper and glue it centered on the card inside. Ink the long edges of a 3/8"-wide strip of pink striped paper and glue it across the top of the tan dotted paper. Trim the strip even with the card edges. Stamp a botanical pattern in the bottom right corner of the tan paper.

Super Sized Brads make a big impact!
A tip from LeNae:
The long stem on this Botanical stamp design gives you so many creative options. I chose to attach a silk flower to the top of the stem. Other options? Try stamping an individual flower, adding a flower sticker or adding a folded flower from the Fold-It Swirls template!
