Something Wonderful Card
By Susan Cobb
Designer’s Tip: I used the template to create a pretty label, then layered it with a Paper Tole embellishment for the perfect card focal.
- Front: Place your card with the fold at the top. Cover the card with Artful Watercolor blue watercolor paper. Cut a 6 1/4"x4 3/4" Artful Watercolor yellow gold/blue patterned paper and glue it centered on the card. Cut a 6 1/2"x3/4” Artful Watercolor striped paper and glue it even with the bottom of the card.
- Use the Easy Vintage Labels Template to trace the 4”x5” label shape onto Artful Watercolor green/blue textured paper. Cut out the label and mat on Artful Watercolor pink textured paper with 1/16” borders. Glue it on the card, 3/8” from the left side and 1/8” from the top.
- Press out the pieces for the Paper Tole “something Wonderful happens…” embellishment and layer them together with foam tape as directed on the sheet. Sand the outer edges of the embellishment. Glue centered on the matted label. Zot™ flowers and leaf on the upper right corner of the embellishment as shown. Cut a 6 1/2" length of 1/8” wide teal grosgrain ribbon and glue it across the striped paper on the bottom of the card, 1/2" from the bottom. Take two 10” lengths of the same ribbon and place together. Tie a bow with the 2 lengths as one. Zot™ the bow on the lower right edge of the label as shown.
- Inside: Cut a 6 1/2"x3” Artful Watercolor yellow gold/blue patterned paper and glue it centered across the card. Cut a 6 1/2"x2” green/blue textured paper and glue it centered across the yellow gold/blue patterned paper. Cut a 6 1/2"x3/4” Artful Watercolor striped paper and glue it even with the bottom of the card. Layer the “go out & SHINE” tag Paper Tole embellishment together with foam tape and sand the outer edges. Glue it on the paper, 2” from the left side. Add flowers and leaf near the upper left edge of the tag as shown. Zot™ ribbon bow in place.
