Instructions:

  1. Card front: Place your card with the fold on the top. Cover with Green Circles holographic paper. Glue a 6 3/8"x4 7/8" Gypsy Jewels green ombre paper on the center, with the light area on the top.
  2. Mat a 3 1/2"x2 1/2" Gypsy Jewels green stripe paper on Blue Circles holo. paper with a 1/16" border and glue 1/8" from the upper left corner. Mat a 3 1/2"x2 1/2" Gypsy Jewels yellow stripe paper on Blue Circles holo. paper with a 1/16" border and glue 1/8" from the lower right corner. Place Jewel Dazzles on the paper corners and place "Happy Birthday" Dazzles as shown.
  3. Use the die cutting machine to cut a bicycle die-cut from Green Circles holo. paper and glue on your card, as shown. Cut out two flowers and two handle tassels from Red Circles holo. paper and glue as shown. Place Jewel Dazzles on the bike.
  4. Cut two dotted balloon die-cuts, one from Red Circles holo. paper and one from Blue Circles holo. paper, saving the innies from each. Glue the red and blue balloons in place, gluing the innies in place too, in the opposite colors. Cut two of the "hollow" balloon die-cuts, one from Red Circles holo. paper and one from Green Circles holo. paper, saving the innies from each and gluing in place, as shown.
  5. Zot on lengths of memory thread, twisting around the bike seat post, and twisting the ends into spirals.
