Start with a 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece of Soft Succulent card stock. Score it at 5 1/2″ and 1 1/4″. Fold and burnish the 5 1/2″ score line. This is your card base.
Cut a piece of Hand-Penned patterned paper to 4″ x 4 1/2″. Then cut a 1″ strip off so you have 4″ x 3 1/2″. Adhere the larger piece to the front of the card base below the 1 1/4″ score line. After adhering it in place, fold the flap down over the patterned paper and adhere. Then glue the 1″ piece of patterned paper on that flap. I used the reverse side for a bit of contrast. You have now made the pocket for your card.
Get your silicone mat handy! Take your Tear & Tape and wrap it entirely around the folded card base. Start in the middle of the front flap and go all the way around the back and meet in the front again. Remove the release tape and place on your silicone mat. Do not place on paper or it will STICK! . I used 16″ of Fresh Freesia ribbon and placed the back of the card on the ribbon and then brought it around to the front. Tie a bow….it’s much easier because the Tear & Tape holds it in place. Trim your ends.
Cut a piece of Basic White card stock to 5″ x 3 3/4″. Stamp “Happy Birthday” from the Artistically Inked stamp set on the top. Add a flower from Hand-Penned just below the sentiment. Use Soft Succulent and Fresh Freesia inks. Adhere this to a 5 1/4″ x 4″ piece of Soft Succulent card stock. Slide it into the pocket and your card is complete.
