Floral Birthday Wishes
The ready top fold card measures, 7" x 7". For making the card base you will need two pieces of cardstock measuring 7" x 7" and 7 1/2" x 7". Score the second piece on 1/2" and crease well using a bone folder, making a hinge. Add glue on the hinge and secure the first piece on top.
Choose the pattern paper from the Rustic Sunflower designer paper collection and cut it to 6 1/2" x 6 1/2" using a deckled edge paper trimmer. Layer the panel on Luxe Gold cardstock making a golden border of 1/16" on all four sides.
Cut 2 solid panels using Simple Centerpiece die, one from white cardstock and one from teal color cardstock. Cut the teal one on the marked edges and make it a bit short and prepare a layered twin colored panel. Finally, layer it on the card front as shown.
Cut 2 pieces of die cuts from Simply Elegant Centerpiece Die, one from Luxe Gold and another from white cardstock. Glue both of them together keeping the golden one on the bottom, a little off-centered to create shadows. Layer the die-cut on the card front using tiny glue dots.
