Designer Tip: Color the wood embellishments with Dylusions Ink Sprays, then layer together and/or decorate with pearls for a fun look!



  1. 1) Trim the card to a 5" square and place with the fold at the top. Cover the card front with Red Velvet green textured paper, and ink the edges brown. Cut a 4 3/4" square of Red Velvet ivory/brown type paper and ink the edges brown. Tie a knot at the center of a 6" length of chocolate crepe ribbon and Zot the knot centered 1/2" from the top of the ivory/brown paper. Wrap ends around sides and glue to the back to secure. Glue the paper centered to the green card front.
  2. 2) Mat a 3 3/4"x2 7/8" Red Velvet red/green/brown floral paper on Red Velvet dark brown/ivory dotted paper with 1/8" borders. Foam tape to the card front, centered 1/4" from the bottom.
  3. 3) Spray 4 five-petal (pointed) wood flowers and 1 daisy wood flower with Cherry Pie ink; let dry. Spray each a second time and let dry. Spray two wood butterflies with White Linen; let dry. Repeat. Spray two leaves with Dirty Martini, then white Linen, then a bit more Dirty Martini. Let dry.
  4. 4) Place a LeCreme pearl centered on the daisy and foam tape centered over the chocolate ribbon knot. Layer 2 five-petal flowers together, off-setting the petals. Glue together at the center. Repeat for the remaining five-petal flowers. Place black pearls centered on each layered flower. Zot a layered flower with a green leaf on the chocolate ribbon on each side of the daisy as shown.
  5. 5) Zot the white inked butterflies angled on the floral paper as shown. Add tiny black pearls to the center of each butterfly for a body. Place black or LeCreme pearls on the flowers in the paper to accent the centers. Zot a burgundy crepe bow to the bottom right corner of the floral paper.
  6. 6) Stamp "Thinking OF YOU" on Red Velvet ivory/tan textured paper with black ink. Place the rectangle Label D on the template centered over the words and trace the shape with a pencil. Cut out the shape and ink the edges brown. Glue/foam tape the label to the left side of the card as shown. Add a tiny black pearl to the end of the label.
