Designer Tip: I like to select my papers before deciding on a color palette when coloring stamps.



  1. Place the card fold on the left. Cover with Picnic red bandana paper. Trace the largest Design Tool Kit template onto Picnic blue/yellow dot paper. Mat with white cardstock, with a 1/32" border. Glue flush with the card fold.
  2. Trace 4" of the Elegant Label template extending from a straight edge of the Silky White cardstock. Stamp the image, along with 2 butterflies and the greeting, within the label shape. Stamp another butterfly on scrap Silky White paper.
  3. Color the shoe with the TB3 and TB1 pens. Color the dots and details with the GB7 pen. Color the bear with EB5 and GB10, blending colors. Color the flower with both GB7 and GB6 pens. Color the butterfly wings with the CR9 pen and the body and details with GB7 pen.
  4. Cut out the label shape and mat with red cardstock, leaving a 1/16" border. Glue flush with the left side of the card. Foam tape the single butterfly to the top right card corner. Use 3/8" wide Picnic red/black dot grosgrain ribbon to make a bow and Zot to the top left corner of the label.
