Designer Tip: I used the twine on the card to make it look like the labels were hanging from the top. Add Pink Jewel Dazzles for a little sparkle!



  1. Instructions
  2. With the fold on the left, cover the card front with Penelope pink cardstock. Ink the edges black using a cosmetic sponge. Cut 4 3/4"x6 1/4" of Penelope aqua/green/pink tile, ink edges, and glue to center.
  3. Cut 4 3/4"x2 1/4" of Penelope horizontal scallop paper. Cut along the scallops at the top and bottom. Mat on 4 3/4"x2 1/4" of white cardstock. Glue across the center of the card.
  4. Cut out Fancy Label B and Rounded Label B from Penelope green gingham. Ink the edges black and mat both on pink cardstock, leaving a 1/16" border. Stamp "We'll be friends forever" in the center of Fancy Label B. Stamp "Because you know way too much!" in the center of Rounded Label B.
  5. Foam tape the first greeting to the card 1 1/4" from the top and 1/4" from the left. Foam tape the second greeting 1/4" from the right and 3/4" from the bottom. Add pink Jewel Dazzles to both greetings as shown.
  6. Zot a small bow of pink/white twine at the tops of the greetings. Rub a bit of Tacky Glue on the ends to keep them from fraying. Use rolled up Zots adhesive dots to glue a length of twine extending from the bows to the top of the card as shown. Trim to fit. Add Tacky glue to prevent fraying.
  7. Cut a 5"x3/4" piece of striped paper and trim along the top edge, even with the scallop. Mat the bottom edge on pink cardstock with 1/16" borders. Glue across the center of the inside. Cut out Victorian Label from green gingham. Stamp "HUGS & kisses" on the center. Ink the edges black and mat on pink cardstock, with 1/16" borders. Glue to the Penelope striped paper. Add pink Jewel Dazzles to each side of the label. Zot a pink/white twine bow at the top of the label.
