Designer's Tip: I love that the Papier Tole can be used in many ways other than the traditional way. Here I've used it the traditional way for the focal, but I split up different layers of other Papier Tole images on the sheet to create the border along the top and on the back inner panel of the card.
- For the Front: Use the paper patterns from the package insert to cut the exact shapes to fit your card. To do this, cut out the patterns, trace them with pencil on your chosen paper, then cut out and glue to their corresponding blank panels. Place the flat die cut card vertically. Fold the die cut card by making a valley fold on the topmost score line and a mountain fold on the next score line; repeat all the way down.
- When gluing on your paper, use Chalkboard green/aqua tiles paper for the bottom 1” of the card with and sand the edges. For the center, use Chalkboard black scuffed paper and sand the edges. For the center panel use Chalkboard black/green/pink flourishes paper and sand the edges.
- Cut a 3 3/4"x2 7/8” Chalkboard pink scuffed paper and round the corners. Sand the edges. Place Dazzles™ “DO SOMETHING Every Day THAT MAKES YOU SPARKLE” centered on the pink paper. Foam tape centered on the black scuffed paper on the card. Use your finger to rub some mint Perfect Pearls™ over the Dazzles™ words. Lightly mist with water to set the Perfect Pearls and let dry.
- Add Dazzles™ borders on the edges of the black scuffed paper to frame it as shown. Add remaining Dazzles™ and Black Jewel Dazzles™ as shown. Wrap the bottom of the center of the card with 3/4" wide black crepe ribbon and tie a bow. Trim the ends into a “V”.
- Inside: Cut a 6 1/2"x4” Chalkboard black/green/pink flourishes paper and sand the edges. Glue on the inside, even with sides and bottom. Cut a 3”x2 1/2" Chalkboard pink scuffed paper. Round the corners and sand the edges. Place Dazzles™ “CELEBRATE THE LITTLE Things” centered on it. Add Perfect Pearls™ and mist to set as for the front. Add stars, hearts, and Black Jewel Dazzles™ as shown. Mat on Chalkboard black scuffed paper with 1/4" borders, then round the corners and sand the edges. Add Dazzles™ white borders to the sides, trimming evenly. Mat on Chalkboard green/aqua tiles paper with 1/4" borders. Sand the edges and glue centered on the card. Zot™ knotted black crepe ribbon as shown.
