Designer’s Tip: When cutting the mirror sheets with cutting dies, shimming for extra pressure is important. Keep adding shims of unwrinkled cardstock between the cutting plates and the die until a clean cut is achieved.



  1. Place the card fold on the top and cut 3/8” from the bottom of the card front only. Place the Party Animal Dazzles™ border along the bottom of the card back and color as shown with Spectrum Noir blueTB5 and red CR8.
  2. Die cut a red, purple and blue Adhesive Mirror Sheet with 2 ½” wide 4 Circles & 4 Scallops Cutting Dies. Peel the backing and place the blue and purple circles to extend off each side of 6 ¼’x4 1/8” black cardstock and trim even with edges. Place the red circle between the first 2. Die cut a 1 ¾” white cardstock circle and glue to the card lower right as shown. Place Party Animal Dazzles™ “Party Animal!” on the white circle. Glue the black cardstock rectangle to the card center.
  3. Place the Party Animal Dazzles™ hippo on white cardstock and color with Spectrum Noir gray IG4, IG2 and red CR8 and blue TB5. Cut out hippo, leaving 1/16” wide border around Dazzles™ and foam tape to the red circle.
  4. Place Party Animal Dazzles™ animal balloons on scraps of blue and purple Adhesive Mirror Sheets and cut out. Peel backing and place on the card front as shown. Place stars and confetti on the circles as shown. Wrap lengths of red and white 1/8” Ribbon around the card top and tie a bow on the left side of the card. Zot( under the bow to keep in place.
