Instructions:

  1. Front: Place your card with the fold on the left. Cover the card with Indigo Lace tan/gray/blue/white lace border paper with the border at the top. Ink the edges with Sailboat ink.
  2. Stamp the border image onto Indigo Lace gray circles paper with Sailboat ink 3 times. Trim each border close to the image and mat the long sides on Indigo Lace dark blue circles paper. Place 2 borders across the card, meeting at the center for a continuous border, 1 3/8” from the bottom. Trim the excess even with the outer edges of the card. Ink the edges. Set aside the third border for the inside.
  3. Stamp the 2 1/4" lace medallion image onto Indigo Blue light blue circles paper and cut it out. Glue it overlapping the border, 1 1/8” from the left side. Stamp the 1 1/8” lace medallion image centered onto a gray/tan flower on the Indigo Lace gray/tan/white lace paper. Cut out the flower and foam tape it centered on the light blue lace medallion on the border. Stamp a small flower onto white cardstock and cut it out, leaving a white border. Foam tape it centered on the image/flower on the card as shown. Stamp the 1 1/8” lace medallion image again on an ivory part of the gray/tan/white lace paper and cut it out. Glue the medallion near the layered images on the card as shown.
  4. Finish the front: Stamp small flower images centered on the lace flowers on the background paper as shown. Stamp a flower/vines image on the left side of the layered lace medallion images. Stamp a flower/leaves on white cardstock and cut it out. Glue it near the lower right corner of the card. Stamp “Dream” onto Indigo Lace gray circles paper and trim to a 7/8x1/2” rectangle. Trim the left corners for a tag shape. Mat on Indigo Lace dark blue circles paper. Fold a small piece of 1/4" wide navy organdy ribbon and glue it on the back of the tag on the left side for a tab. Foam tape the tag overlapping the flower as shown. Place Silver Jewel Dazzles™ centered on the lace medallions, flowers, and borders as shown. Wrap the left side of the card with navy organdy ribbon and tie a bow near the top.
  5. Inside: Cut a 5”x2” Indigo Lace tan/gray/blue/white lace border paper. Take the reserved stamped/matted border and glue it across the right side of the paper. Trim the edges evenly. Ink the edges. Stamp the 1 1/8” lace medallion image on the left side of the paper, then stamp “Just For YOU” to the right of the medallion. Stamp a small flower centered on a lace medallion or flower on the background. Let dry. Glue the paper across the card, 1 3/4" from the bottom. Tie a navy organdy ribbon bow and Zot™ in place.
