Designer's Tip:



  1. Place your card with the fold to your left. Cover the blank card with black cardstock. Cut a 4 7/8"x6 1/4" piece of Sunshine & Shadows yellow/gray flourish paper and glue to the center of the card, leaving 1/8" black edges.
  2. Using the template, cut a 5" label on gray dot paper. Mat it on black cardstock leaving 1/16" edges. Glue on the card centered as shown.
  3. Cut an oval doily in half and glue one piece to the front of the card so the straight edge of the doily is even with the right side of the card.
  4. Glue 3/4" black crepe ribbon wide black ribbon across the card and trim the edges. Glue a thin silver ribbon to the center of the black ribbon. Trim the edges.
  5. Punch out the Sunny Medallions Paper Toile and layer in their numbered order with foam tape. Glue the medallion centered on the right of the card, as shown.
  6. Stamp "You are so very special" in black ink on Sunshine yellow flourish paper. Place underneath the inner label on the template, trace and cut.

Tie a bow in 3/4" black crepe ribbon and Zot to the greeting as shown. Place a white flower in the center of the bow.
  7. Inside: Cover the inside right with Sunshine yellow/grey flourish paper and ink the edges. Glue the other half of the doily with the straight edge even with the fold.
  8. Cut a 1" strip of black cardstock and glue even with the fold. Cut a 1" strip of gray dots paper, and also glue even with the fold, leaving a 1/16" strip of black showing.
  9. Glue 3/4" black crepe ribbon and silver ribbon layered in the center, just as for the front. Trim the edges.
  10. Punch out a square Papier Tole and glue on the card as shown, 1/2" from the fold. Use the template to cut a 2" label from the Sunshine grey dot paper. Mat on black cardstock with 1/16" edges and glue on the center of the Papier Tole.
