Wonderful Card

This is a card that I designed using the Moonlight Paper Collection from the Autumn/Winter Idea Book 2012 which was a Halloween featured collection. I used Fabulous You C1533 also from the same idea book for the sentiment and border. I used the flower from the January 2013 Stamp Of The Month S1301 which is a valentines day stamp set. I love to use the papers for other events to show their versatility and that they don’t have to only be used for the featured event.

Inside of Card

This card can be used for many different events. Use it for a Birthday by adding a sentiment inside referencing to a birthday wish. Use it for a note card to say I’m thinking about you. Being blank inside allows you to decide how to use it. It has a beautiful flower that has a little dimension just by adding an extra layer of the two bottom petals and curling them up just a bit. I also used liquid glass in the center of the flower in tiny little dots to add a little extra dimension.

A Birthday Card for my husband.

My husband loves my cards. I made him this one using the Urban Paper Collection from CTMH and created it in CDS. It was completely done in Design Space and required no hand cutting of pieces. I embellished it with tiny screw shaped brads from the Tim Holtz product line, ribbon button from CTMH and ribbon I purchased online.

Score and Fold 1 – 8 ½” x 5 ½” piece of Colonial White Cardstock in half. This will make a 4 ½” x 5 ½” card.


1. Using daubers and the stem flower daub desired color combination onto the desired sections of the flower and starting in the center inside of the card stamp image in the middle of the bottom of the card. Repeat across each side of the image across the length of the card. Also use this method and stamp image onto the back bottom edge of the card and on the front bottom left corner of the envelope.
2. Using a dauber distress the edge first with olive ink and follow with barn red ink on all edges of both the pattern papers and the cardstock pieces.
3. Using liquid glass, glue the 3 ½” x 3 ½” piece of Barn Red Cardstock to the Grey Pattern Paper leaving just under ¼” from top and two sides of the card.
4. Using Barn Red Ink, stamp Happy Birthday evenly between the bottom edge of the Barn Red Cardstock and the bottom edge of the Grey Pattern Paper.
5. Using liquid glass, glue the 3” x 3” piece of Flower Paper to the
3 ¼” x 3 ¼” piece of Slate Cardstock set aside.
6. Apply a glue dot to the ends of the first piece of ribbon and place it across the Grey base page starting at the top ¼” down from the top of the Barn Red Cardstock. Then a second piece ¼” up from the bottom of the Barn Red Cardstock.
7. Using liquid glass glue the Slate Cardstock with the Flower paper on top of the Barn Red Cardstock and over the ribbon evenly spaced.
8. Apply glue dots to the remaining piece of ribbon and place it across the middle of the Grey Base Paper so that you cover the middle of the flower.
9. Pierce the flower paper with a paper piercing tool about ¼” from each of the four corners of the Flower paper. Place a brad in each hole and fold down the ends being sure to flatten them.
10. Pierce through the middle piece of ribbon on the edges of the slate cardstock piece being sure to stay in the middle of the ribbon. Place brads in holes and fold down the edges.

12. Fold the 10” piece of Bakers Twine in half and insert it under the top ribbon at the folded edge of the card. Lay it over the middle piece of ribbon and under the bottom ribbon piece. Fray your tails and trim if necessary. Tie the 3 ½” pieces of Twine around the center to create a bow tie one at a time. Fray and trim the edges.
13. Distress around both flower segments you cut out from the Flower Paper. Chip board the smaller segment and glue to the larger segment. Chip board and glue to the top of the Flower on the card front.
