  • 4. Score yellow strip cut in Step 3 at 2-1/2” and 2-3/8” from one short end to create hinge. Glue back of hinge to back of yellow card. Adhere yellow card to embossed cardstock.
  • 5. Cut two 7/8”x2-1/8” white strips and one 7/8”x1-7/8” white strip. On two larger pieces, stamp “Thank You for All You do” and “MOM”; heat emboss with clear powder. Stamp “Love You Bunches” on smaller piece; heat emboss. Mat all pieces on orange cardstock. Adhere “Thank You” to front of hinge and “MOM” to back as shown. Tie ribbon around hinge.
