Designer Tip: I embossed the Script Greetings die-cuts with copper embossing powder for a pretty metallic finish and shiny texture.

Supplies:

Instructions:

  1. Front: Place your card with the fold at the left. Cover the card with Garden Walk tan textured paper. Ink the edges with Timber Brown ink. Cut a 4 1/4"x5 3/4" Garden Walk pink/teal/brown floral paper. Mat on Garden Walk pink textured paper with 1/8” borders. Ink the edges brown. Glue it centered on the card.
  2. Cut a 4 1/4"x1 1/4" brown cardstock and mat the long sides on Garden Walk brown/tan dots paper with 1/8” borders. Mat again on Garden Walk tan textured paper with 1/16” borders. Foam tape it across the card, 1 1/8” from the bottom.
  3. Use the “hello” cutting die and your die cutting machine to cut the word from brown cardstock. Ink the die-cut with VersaMark, then sprinkle with copper embossing powder. Emboss with the heat gun. Glue the embossed word centered on the brown cardstock.
  4. Cut out butterflies and flowers from remaining paper and foam tape them on the background paper and near the word as shown. Use 1/4" wide aqua organdy ribbon to tie a bow. Zot™ the bow on the card.
  5. Inside: Cut a 2”x6 1/2" Garden Walk pink/teal/brown floral paper. Mat the long sides on Garden Walk pink textured paper. Ink the edges brown and glue it down the card, 5/8” from the left side. Cut a 5”x1 1/4" brown cardstock. Mat the long sides on Garden Walk brown/tan dots paper with 1/8” borders. Mat again on Garden Walk tan textured paper with 1/16” borders. Glue it across the card, 2” from the bottom. Die cut “thanks” from brown cardstock and emboss it copper as you did for the front. Glue the word centered on the brown cardstock. Cut out butterflies and flowers as you did for the front and glue in place.
