Designer’s Tip: Before using the embossing folder with these double-sided papers, check to make sure that the side with the “raised” image is on top. Place your paper inside, with the green side down to achieve the embossed effect on the green side of the paper.
- Place your card with the fold at the top. Cover the card front with lavender squiggles paper. Glue a 6 1/2"x2 1/2" black/white dots paper on the center. Sand the edges of a 6 1/2"x1/4” green/black houndstooth paper and mat on black cardstock with 1/16” borders. Glue even with the bottom edge.
- Use the Embossing/Die-Cutting machine and embossing folder to emboss the image on green textured paper. Trim the edges outside the curved design. Mat on black cardstock with 1/16” borders. Gently sand the surface of the embossed design for a distressed look. Foam tape the piece centered on the card front.
- Ink “Best Wishes” Dazzles™ from the Greetings Dazzles™ sheet with Black SurfaceZ ink and let dry. Add to the right side of the center label.
- Cut out some individual flowers from the Simply Susan floral paper (the back of the green textured paper). Layer and foam tape together. Tie a bow with black crepe ribbon and Zot™ to the embossed label as shown. Foam tape flowers in place. Add Black Jewel Dazzles™ as desired.
