Designer's Tip: I accented the edges of the matted papers and floral paper design with Jewel Dazzles and Border Dazzles for a striking result! The Jewel Dazzles fit nicely inside the edges of the scalloped borders-fun!
- Place your card with the fold at the top. Cover the card front with Fresh Cut red textured paper and ink the edges black. Glue a 6"x4 1/2" light blue cardstock centered on the card front. Glue a 5 1/4"x3 3/4" Fresh Cut yellow floral paper centered on the blue cardstock. Cut a 6"x2" Fresh Cut floral rectangle and mat long sides only on pink with 1/4" borders. Glue the matted strip across the blue and yellow rectangles 1 1/2" from the bottom.
- Place border stickers along the edges of the cardstock and papers as shown. Add Jewel Dazzles along the borders, corners, and to embellish the Fresh Cut floral paper. Add "Happy Birthday" centered on the Fresh Cut yellow floral paper. Zot black/pink stitched grosgrain ribbon bow near upper left corner.
- Write or computer print message on Fresh Cut yellow floral paper and trim to a 3"x1 1/4" rectangle. Mat on blue with 1/4" borders. Mat again on Fresh Cut red textured paper with 1/2" borders. Glue centered to the inside. Add border stickers and Jewel Dazzles as shown.
