  • A rectangle, 8 ½ by 5 ½ on plain sturdy card stock. Fold in half to make the card base

Assemble the pieces

Glue the large patterned card stock on the base card. Add the strip, then the scalloped circle. Using an adhesive circle, attach the 1” circle to the center of the scalloped circle. Glue the sheer ribbon pieces, ephemera tile and mini ribbon rose onto the 1” circle.

Card 2

Prepare the following pieces, each from four contrasting or complimentary patterned card stock. Your measurements will vary depending on what size card you make.

  • Two rectangles measuring 3 7/8” x 2 ½”,  from different patterned card stock and a 1” circle from of the patterned card stock.
  • A 2” scalloped punch cut out
  • A 3” x 3 7/8 strip of patterned card stock

Assemble the pieces together

Glue the two rectangles to the strip of card stock leaving a ¼” space of the strip showing. Glue the entire piece in place on the front of the base card. Next use an adhesive circle to adhere the scalloped cut out to the center of the card. Arrange the I” circle, ephemera tile, sheer ribbon and mini ribbon rose circle then glue in place on the scalloped circle.  

Card 3

Using the same card stock patterns you can arrange the card in a third way. Prepare the following pieces, each from four contrasting or complimentary patterned card stock. Your measurements will vary depending on what size card you make.

  • A 3 7/8” x 5 ¼” rectangle
  • Two rectangles 1 ½” x 2 ¼” and 1 rectangle 3 5/8” x 2 ¼”
  • A scalloped 2” circle.
  • A 1” circle
  • Two strips of sheer ribbon 2 ½” in length

Assemble the pieces together

Glue the large patterned rectangle onto the plain base card stock. Next glue the two smaller rectangles and the larger one leaving spaces between them. This allows the color to show through from the card stock below.  Using adhesive circles adhere the scalloped circle on next. Use another adhesive circle to adhere the 1” circle on top of the scalloped circle. This gives the card several layers and depth. Next arrange the sheer ribbon, ephemera tile and mini ribbon rose and glue in place.
