“Celebrate!” — By Paris Dukes

Designer Tip: Paris' gorgeous “Celebrate!” card takes just minutes to recreate. Make it for an anniversary, as Paris did, or change the journaling to celebrate any event you'd like!


For the Card Front:

  1. Place the card with the fold on the left. Glue a 2 1/2"-wide piece of green floral paper even with the card fold, trimming any excess even with the card edges. Glue a 2 1/4"-wide piece of green striped paper (stripes running vertically) even with the right side of the card front. Glue a 1/2"-wide strip of purple textured paper over the space between the green papers.
  2. Glue a 5" length of light green grosgrain ribbon across the center of the card front. Tie another 8" of ribbon into a shoestring bow and use a Zot™ to attach it over the left end of the ribbon length.
  3. Use foam tape to attach the circular “Celebrate!” punch-out over the right end of the ribbon length. Add a mini brad to the center of both small circular floral punch-outs, then use foam tape to attach one above and one below the “Celebrate!” punch-out.

For the Card Inside:

  1. Glue a 4"x6 1/2" piece of green floral paper down the center of the card inside. Glue a 3"x6 1/2" piece of purple textured paper centered down the floral paper.
  2. Journal “Happy” onto the blank circular floral punch-out. Punch out the blank yellow label and cut around the outer edges of the aqua border. Journal “Anniversary” onto the yellow portion, then glue both punch-outs down the purple paper.
