Celebrating THE MAGIC OF you!
By Susan Cobb
- Front: Place your card with the fold on the left. Cover the card with black cardstock. Cut a 4 3/4"x6 1/4" Sunday Musings floral corner paper with the flowers on the lower left corner of the paper. Cut a 4 3/4"x1” Sunday Musings green textured paper and mat long the sides on black cardstock with 1/16” borders. Glue across the floral corner paper, 1 3/4" from the top. Glue the entire piece centered on the card.
- Stamp “Celebrating THE MAGIC OF you!” on Sunday Musings yellow textured paper with VersaMark ink and sprinkle with black super fine embossing powder. Tap off the excess and emboss with the heat gun. Trim to a 1 3/4" square and ink the edges black. Mat on white cardstock with 1/16” borders. Mat again on black cardstock with 1/8” borders. Foam tape centered on the right side of the green textured paper on the card front.
- Finish the front: Cut out a clump of flowers and leaves from remaining paper and foam tape it overlapping the left side of the matted greeting. Use 1/2" wide burgundy grosgrain ribbon to tie a bow. Trim each end into a “V” and Zot™ the bow on the bottom edge of the matted greeting as shown.
- Inside: Cut a 5”x3” rectangle from remaining Sunday Musings floral corner paper, with some flowers on the right side. Mat the long sides on black cardstock with 1/16” borders. Mat the long sides again on Sunday Musings yellow textured paper with 1/4" borders. Ink the edges black. Stamp “Happy Birthday” on the paper near the floral motif with VersaMark ink, then emboss it black. Glue burgundy ribbon across the bottom of the floral paper, trimming the sides evenly. Glue the paper across the card, 1 1/4" from the bottom. Cut out a clump of flowers from remaining paper and glue overlapping the left side of the ribbon as shown. Zot™ knotted ribbon in place.
