Life is a Journey
By Susan Cobb
Designer’s Tip: The pink/black dotted frame with white oval center can be used together in one piece as I did for this card, or you could punch out the center and back the frame with patterned paper depending on your project.
- Place your card with the fold at the left. Cut two 5”x1/2” pink/black dots strips and glue even with the top and bottom edges of the card front. Cut a 5”x5 3/4" teal patterned paper and glue centered on the card front. Punch out the ivory scalloped border die-cut and glue even with the right side of the card, trimming the edges evenly. Ink the edges of the card black.
- Punch out the large pale yellow/ivory banner die-cut and glue centered on the card front 1/16” from the bottom. Punch out the pink/black dots frame with white oval center in one piece and glue centered over the banner 2” from the bottom. Cut out the pale yellow “Life is a JOURNEY” banner and glue to the left side of the white oval and pink/black frame, wrapping the left edge of the excess banner onto the back of the card, just left of the words. Foam tape a small pink heart on the right side of the banner.
- Punch out the tricycle and foam tape centered on the large pale yellow/ivory banner die-cut and white oval with frame as shown. Punch out flower die-cuts and foam tape as shown. Foam tape a pink heart die-cut centered on the large wheel of the tricycle. Use 3/8” wide light blue satin ribbon to tie a small bow. Zot™ on the tricycle as shown.
- Inside: Punch out the blue circle die-cut with pink and tan banners across it, and the two black decorative flourishes die-cuts. Layer the black flourishes beneath the circle die-cut centered on the inside. Glue “ENJOY the ride” centered on the banner portion of the circle die-cut. Glue heart and flower die-cuts as shown. Zot™ light blue satin ribbon in place.
