Designer’s Tip: Create a collage effect on the card corner by using different elements with a theme.
- Card front: Cut the card to 5” square and place the fold at the top. Ink edges of 4 3/4” square of Rosemary & Thyme pink tiles paper and glue to the card center.
- Mat 3”x4 1/4” Rosemary &Thyme purple houndstooth paper with white cardstock, leaving 1/8” border. Glue 1/4” from top and 3/8” from the right. Mat long edges of 5”x1 3/8” Rosemary & Thyme black dot paper with black cardstock, leaving 1/8” borders. Glue across card, 1/2” from the bottom. Stamp and white emboss Smart & Sassy Sayings “You’re Not Old…” on 2”x3 1/4” and mat with black cardstock, leaving 1/8” borders. Place Purple Jewel Dazzles™ at the corners. Glue 5/8” from top and right edge.
- Assemble purple and pink plaid Flowers Papier Tole with foam tape and glue to the left side of the card as shown. Zot™ two metal pins between flowers. Knot Simply Susan’s 5/8” lavender grosgrain ribbon and Zot™ over the pin stems. Stamp the Sassy Sayings butterfly stamp once on white cardstock and once on Rosemary & Thyme purple houndstooth. Cut the butterfly from the purple paper and foam tape over the white cardstock image. Cut out stamp and glue to the left side of the card
- Inside: Glue 2 1/4”x2 3/4” black cardstock 1/8” from the left and 1 1/4” from bottom of the card. Glue Rosemary & Thyme 1 1/4”x4 3/4” purple houndstooth centered down the black cardstock. Glue 2”x2 1/2” black dot paper centered on the black cardstock. Arrange Flowers Papier Tole, embellished with Purple Jewel Dazzles™ and Smart & Sassy Sayings stamp to the rectangle as shown.
