Designer’s Tip: If cutting out the flowers is difficult for you, there is a Flower Frenzy Cutting Die set available.



  1. Place the card fold on the left and cover with black cardstock. Ink edges of 4 ¾”x6 1/2” Noted tan text border paper and glue to the card center. Cut a 4”x1” strip of stripe vellum and glue, using E-Z Runner Vellum, across the top left corner and trim even with the card edges.
  2. Stamp and black emboss Well Preserved jar stamp onto blue vellum and cut out. Use vellum runner to glue jar to the bottom center of the card, as shown. Stamp and white emboss Flower Frenzy stamps on red tile vellum: 2 large, 1 medium and 3 small flowers. From blue vellum 4 medium, and 2 small flowers. Cut out all flowers and embellish centers with Red Jewel Dazzles™.
  3. Set 1 medium blue and 1 small red flower aside for in the inside. Foam tape 2 flowers on the bottom left side of the jar and the remaining flowers above the jar opening, as shown, using 1 and 2 layers of foam tape. Glue “So many reasons…” tag to the right side of the jar and use ¾” wide red dot Happy Days Ribbon to make a bow and Zot™ to the top of the tag.
  4. Inside: Ink edges of 4 5/8”x5 ¾” Noted tan text paper and glue to the card center. Glue a 5”x1/2” strip of striped paper across the card, 7/8” from the top. Glue the small red vellum flower to the center of the medium blue flower and glue to the left side of the border. Glue “Happy Birthday” vellum cut out below the border and place Red Jewel Dazzles™ on the sides as shown.
