Designer Tip: 1) Place your card with the fold at the left. Cover the card with Ruby Rose white/gray floral paper. Cut a 3/4" wide Ruby Rose dark red paper and ink the edges black. Glue it across the card, 3 1/2" from the bottom. Glue Ruby Rose light gray diamonds paper on the bottom 3” of the card. Ink the edges black. Glue a 5” length of silver velvet glitter ribbon even with the top edge of the dark red paper. 2) Use the Easy Vintage Labels template to trace the 4”x5” label shape on pink diamonds paper. Cut it out and mat on black cardstock with 1/16” borders. Foam tape it centered on the card, 1/4" from the top. Place Dazzles™ “you are loved” plus frame and hearts, centered on the label as shown. 3) Apply VersaMark ink to the surface (including side edges) of 2 wood hearts. Sprinkle one with white embossing powder. Tap off the excess and funnel it back into the container. Emboss with the heat gun. Repeat for the second heart with black embossing powder. Back the white heart with Ruby Rose dark red paper and the black heart with Ruby Rose white/gray floral paper. Glue the hearts and add flowers between them on the bottom of the card as shown. 4) Wet the paint brush and use it to apply dark red shimmer watercolor paint to the inner spaces of the words “you” and “Loved”, and hearts as shown. Let dry. Foam tape overlapping hearts centered on the white embossed wood heart. Use thin strips of paper or Dazzles™ hearts to finish the button holes and Zot™ in place as shown. Zot™ or glue pearls in place. Glue sequins and beads as shown. Use 1/4" wide black organdy ribbon to tie a bow. Zot™ the bow on the upper left edge of the label. 5) Inside: Cut a 5”x1 1/2" Ruby Rose white/gray floral paper and ink the edges black. Mat the long sides on Ruby Rose light gray diamonds paper with 1/4” borders and ink the edges. Cut a 5”x1/2” Ruby Rose dark red paper and ink the edges. Glue it centered across the white/gray floral paper. Glue it centered across the card. 6) Use the 2”x2 3/4" label on the template to trace the shape onto Ruby Rose pink diamonds paper. Cut it out and mat on black cardstock with thin borders. Glue it centered on the papers as shown. Place Dazzles™ “follow your heart” and hearts on the label as shown. Paint in the open hearts with dark red shimmer watercolor paint as you did for the front. Let dry. Add the pearl and pink glimmer ribbon bow as shown.
