Designer Tip: The Layered Labels template is perfect for these beautiful cameo Dazzles™.

Supplies:

Instructions:

  1. Card front: Open a blank card and place with the fold horizontal, then score a horizontal line 2 ½” from the bottom edge. Mountain fold along this scored line to create an easel card front. Ink the edges of 6 ¼”x4 ¾” maroon circles paper and mat on 6 ½”x5” ivory cardstock, then ink the edges and glue onto the bottom half only of your card front, centering the panel on your card.
  2. Open your card and place with the inside face down. Use the pencil to lightly mark horizontal lines 1 ¼” from the top and bottom edges, then mark lines 1 3/4” from the right and left sides. Use the knife to cut out this 3”x2 ½” window from the front panel and your card front together. Ink the cut edges of your window easel card.
  3. Back the two “cameo” Dazzles™ on ivory cardstock, cutting even with the Dazzles™ edges. Apply the chalk to the open areas of the Dazzles™, as shown. Use the template to trace and cut out two 1 ¾”x2 7/8” “Squared Oval Label B” labels from text paper and ink the edges, then mat on ivory cardstock with 1/16” borders. Foam tape on either side of the window and foam tape the cameos in place. Add border Dazzles™.
  4. Card inside: Ink the edges of 5 ¾”x4 ¼” maroon circles paper and mat on 6 ½”x5” ivory cardstock, then ink the edges and glue in place centered on your card inside panel.
  5. Trace and cut out a “Lacey Label” from text paper and ink the edges, then mat on ivory cardstock with a 1/16” border. Place “you’re the Bees Knees” Dazzles™ on the label, then foam tape on center, being sure it is centered in the front window. Add corner Dazzles™, as shown.
