Don’t Count Your Years Card
By LeNae Gerig
Designer’s Tip: Create a mixed media card with a collection of pearls, gold Dazzles™ and flowers. The Artful Watercolor papers make it so easy to get this look.
- Place the card fold on the top and cover with Artful Affirmations green paper. Cut 6”x4 5/8” border paper with the border on the top, ink edges and glue to the card front.
- Cut a postcard image from the rectangle images paper. Ink edges and glue at an angle on the left side of the card. Ink edges of 6 ½”x7/8” stripe paper and glue across the card, ½” from the bottom. Place a length of Artful Affirmations Dazzles™ border across the bottom edge of the striped border. Ink the card edges.
- Place an Artful Affirmations Dazzles™ “Don’t Count Your Years” greeting on the top right corner. Place the Swirl Girls Pearls across the card, near the bottom as shown. Zot™ a cluster of teal and purple flowers on the bottom right corner. Use a length of purple Jute Twine to make a loopy bow and Zot™ to the top left corner on the border edge. Zot™ a purple flower to the center. Back a large Artful Affirmations Dazzles™ butterfly with Artful Watercolor pink paper and Zot™ to the card among the pearls. Place foam tape under the wings and place 2 small butterfly Dazzles™ on the postcard as shown.
- Inside: Ink edges of 3 ¼”x2 ½” Artful Watercolor pink paper and glue to the card center, ½” from the top. Place Artful Affirmations Dazzles™ “Make Your Years Count” on the center. Ink edges of 6 ½”x1 3/8” stripe paper and glue across the rectangle, 3/8” from the bottom edge. Place Artful Affirmations Dazzles™ swirl leaves, tiny flower and butterfly on the bottom right corner. Zot™ purple flowers as shown.
