Designer Tip: I stamped the greeting, then cut it into separate words for a fun word tile look!



  1. Card base: Score a vertical line 2 ½” from each end of your card and fold the ends to the center to create a gatefold card.
  2. Card front: Place border Dazzles™ 1/16” from the top and bottom edges of two 2 1/8”x6 1/8” silver linen papers, then mat each on black cardstock with 1/16” borders and glue centered on the front panels of your card.
  3. Use VersaMark™ to stamp the ornate label onto black cardstock, dust with white embossing powder and heat set. Cut out 1/16” away from the artwork and glue onto the left panel only, ¾” from the top edge of your card. Stamp and emboss the pitcher w/flowers in black on silver linen paper and cut out with a 1/16” border. Stamp and emboss the pitcher again in white on purple circles paper and cut out, then glue over the flowers on the silver linen embossed piece. Foam tape on the left panel. Stamp and emboss “It’s Your Day” in white on black cardstock. Cut out each word separately and mat each on white cardstock with 1/16” borders, then foam tape onto the label, as shown. Add Jewel Dazzles™ as shown. Zot™ on a white bow, as shown.
  4. Card inside: Glue 4 ¾”x6 ¼” black cardstock on center. Stamp and emboss a label and “Happy Birthday” in black on 4”x3” white cardstock, then mat on silver linen and glue ½” from the top of the black cardstock. Stamp and emboss the label in white on purple circles paper and cut out the two large flowers with leaves, then foam tape over the flowers on the label, as shown. Add border and Jewel Dazzles™, as shown.
