  1. Place the card with the fold at the top. Cut a 2 5/8” wide strip of the leaf w/ stripe border paper and glue to the left side of the card. Cover the remaining portion with textured brown paper and ink the edges. Cover the brown with Magic Mesh.
  2. Thread brown grosgrain ribbon, from the kit, through the ends of the “nature” ribbon tag. Secure the ribbon with dark green mini brads and foam tape the tag over the border, ½” from the bottom of the card. Glue the ribbon across the card and trim the ends flush with the card edges.
  3. Punch-out and lightly sand the edges of the tags. Journal on the small blue tag and foam tape a small leaf square to the bottom edge. Top the tag with a brown bow. Secure a gold leaf brad to a leaf punch-out and a brown mini brad to the flower tag punch-out. Adhere the tags to the face of the card, as shown.
  4. Inside the card: Line the card inside back with blue paper. Cut a 2”x6 ½” strip of leaf/stripes border paper and ink the edges brown. Adhere a ¼” wide strip of the magic mesh across the pocket and secure a tree brad, as shown. Foam tape “happy camper” to the mesh. Glue, three sides only, to the bottom edge of the card, creating a pocket. Place a gift card in the pocket.

Designer Tip: Adding Magic Mesh to the card not only provides texture, but also contributes to the “outdoor” theme of the card. The wider width of the mesh allows you to cover larger portions of the card.
