Directions

STEP 1

  • Make pink card base. Cut slightly smaller black and white cardstock panels; adhere panels together and set aside.

STEP 2

  • Cut 10” ribbon length and tie in bow around bottom of layered piece.

STEP 3

  • Punch, layer and adhere black and white circles together; do not adhere to card yet.

STEP 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.

STEP 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.
