Designer’s Tip: Create a collage look by cutting seemingly random elements from the paper pack. It is helpful if the background paper pattern is small if you are using small embellishments.



  1. Place the card fold on the side. Cover the Card with sponged golden paper. Before gluing the right edge, secure 3 brads in the upper right corner. Mat the top, bottom and right edge of a 3 1/4” x 6” rectangle of small ticket cardstock, leaving a 1/8” wide border. Glue flush with the left edge of the card.
  2. Glue a 5” x 1” border of hand written paper and glue 3/4” from the card bottom. Tear the right edge of a 3” x 2 1/2” rectangle of music paper. Secure a brown felt flower and leave with a green brad. Glue flush with the right edge of the card, 1/2” from the card bottom.
  3. Cut out a large “U” and small “4” and glue and foam tape over the border. Cut out 2 small photos from the photo paper and glue with a small clock cut out to extend from the top of the music paper. Knot a length of ribbon and glue under the photos.
  4. Inside: Mat the bottom long edge of a 5”x 1 3/4” rectangle with golden paper. Glue to the top of the card inside back. Secure a burgundy flower with a yellow brad at the top right corner. Glue letter cut outs spelling “Friend” along the border.
