Card #1
1- Begin by cutting the Z-Fold card into sections the first to remove the pattern section and then along all the fold lines. This will give you 4 pieces. 1- 2 ¼” pattern piece, 3 white pieces about 3 3/16”.
2- Take one white piece and the largest scallop rectangle from the Stitched So Sweetly Die and run through your Big Shot. Or you can just trim it if you want a more masculine card to 3” x 4”.
3- Add the pattern piece to the front of the white scallop piece. Add the large leaf die cut in the center.
4- Stamp a greeting in Shaded Spruce on the thin white label.
5- Wrap 14” of Linen Thread around the bottom of the center element. Tie a bow on the right side. Use the 8” piece of Linen Thread and tie a second bow over the first to create a double bow.
6- Add the greeting so the right side of the label is over the bow. You may want to add dimensionals on the left and liquid adhesive over the bow.
7- Adhere the center element to the cardbase with dimensionals. Add a butterfly and Mint Macaron pearls around the greeting.

All Done!
Card #2
1- Stamp the leaf image around the top and bottom edge of the Soft Sea Foam cardstock in Soft Sea Foam ink.
2- Use the left-over piece from the large leaf die cut as a stencil. With a sponge dauber and Shaded Spruce ink sponge the leaf shape along the top and bottom of the Soft Sea Foam cardstock over the smaller stamped leaf images.
3- Adhere the Soft Sea Foam cardstock to the front of the Shaded Spruce cardbase. Trim the Script Family piece down to 3” x4 ¼”. Adhere to the center of the card with dimensionals.
4- Cut out leaves and flowers with the Bouquet Dies or other punches in Mint Macaron and Rococo Rose cardstock and the butterfly die cut. Adhere under or over the script family piece as you like. Add Crushed Curry pearls in the center of the flowers.
5- Add a piece of white cardstock from the original cardbase to the inside of the card so you can write a message. You can decorate with stamps or die cuts as you like.

All Done!

  1. Such lovely alternative cards! I think I like yours better than the originals! I really like your double bow design. Never saw this before. Such a beautiful bow with a simple tying technique.
