Instructions:

  1. Front: Trim your card to a 5” square and place it with the fold at the top. Cut a
  2. 4 3/4" square from Red Velvet light green textured paper. Stamp the large roses/pendants image four times (close together) across the top of the paper with VersaMark™ ink, allowing the image to overlap the top and side edges of the paper. Sprinkle with white embossing powder, tap off the excess, and heat with the heat gun. Turn the paper so the bottom is at the top and repeat. Mat on black cardstock with thin borders. Cut 4 3/4"x2” Red Velvet red/black dots paper. Mat the long sides on black cardstock with 1/16” borders. Glue it centered across the embossed green paper. Glue the entire piece centered on the card.
  3. Use the 1 3/4"x3 1/2" tag die and your die cutting machine to cut the tag shape from black cardstock. Stamp the large rose/pendants image centered on the black tag with VersaMark™ ink, then emboss it white. Mat on white cardstock with 1/16” borders. Apply a drop of Red Stickles™ inside one of the embossed rose petals and use your knife to spread it to fill the space. Repeat for the remaining petals/roses. Use the same technique for the leaves with Seafoam Stickles™. Let dry. Foam tape the tag centered over the left side of the red/black dots paper as shown.
  4. Finish the front: Stamp and emboss the words “HAPPY BIRTHDAY” in white on black cardstock. Trim each word into a rectangle. Foam tape the words centered on the right side of the red/black dots paper as shown. Tie a knot centered on a 3” length of red glitter ribbon. Trim the ends evenly and Zot™ on the top of the tag. Place Black Thin Lines Dazzles™ on the top and bottom edges of the embossed green paper as shown.
  5. Inside: Cut 5”x1 5/8” black cardstock. Stamp the small rose/pendants image as shown with VersaMark™ ink. Stamp “WITH love” as shown. Emboss both images white. Mat the top long edge with white cardstock leaving a 1/16” border. Add Stickles™ to the rose/leaves image as you did for the tag on the front. Let dry. Glue it even with the bottom of the card. Cut 5”x1” Red Velvet red/black dots paper and glue it above the black cardstock, even with the white mat.
  6. Cut 5”x1” Red Velvet light green textured paper and stamp the large roses/pendants image across it 4 times with VersaMark™ ink. Emboss it white. Mat the long sides on black cardstock with 1/16” borders. Glue it 2 1/4" from the bottom of the card. Place Black Thin Lines Dazzles™ on the sides of the green embossed paper as shown. Cut a 1 5/8” length of red glitter ribbon and glue it down the right side of the black cardstock as shown.
