  • 3. Punch, layer and adhere black and white circles together; do not adhere to card yet.
  • 4. Add chipboard letters and flowers, with brad centers, to circles as shown. Adhere flower circles directly to layered panels; adhere letter circles with foam dots.
  • 5. Insert four silver brads in center of layered panels as shown; adhere panel to card front.
  • Tip
  • 1. Firmly glue flowers to ends of little bobby pins or a baby-sized headband for a coordinating gift.
  • 2. Adjust card size as needed to create a birthday card for older girls; change out “girl” for child’s name.
  • 3. Adding the additional cardstock layers to the card front not only adds style, it allows you to hide brad and ribbon ends, presenting a smooth inner surface.
