Card & Envelope
Step 1 Select your desired print from the Sweet Blossom Stack™ for the main section of the card. Create a 5"x7" envelope with this print, leaving the top end open. Punch a circle into the center of one of the open edges (we punched ours three times) to create a tab.
Step 2 Cut a 1¾"x5" rectangle from a new print. Using the image as a reference, adhere this horizontally to the bottom section of your envelope, ½" up from the bottom edge.
Step 3 Cut a 1¼"x4" rectangle from an additional print. Cut a 7" strip of the orange grosgrain ribbon. Adhere this lengthwise to the center of your rectangle, securing one side underneath the left edge and looping the other end on the right and adhering in place (your quote will cover up the raw edge). Adhere this grouping to the center of your last strip.
Step 4 Cut a 1"x3¼" strip of paper from another print. Apply your vellum quote, or rub on your desired sentiment to the middle of the strip. Apply this grouping to the center of your last strip using adhesive foam squares.
Step 5 Cut a 5"x7" square from an additional print. Write a note to your significant other and insert this inside your envelope.
Hanging Heart Décor
Step 1 Cut two pieces of the orange twine, each measuring 14" long. Using the image as a reference, tie these onto the popsicle stick at opposite ends, securing the loose ends onto the stick.
Step 2 Punch nine large hearts and 18 medium hearts from assorted prints. Fold each of these in half (print in). Adhere them in sets of three along both pieces of twine, creating five groupings of hearts on each one. To do this, attach half of the back of the first heart to the half of the back of another; then adhere the two remaining halves to the back of the third heart (repeating ten times).
Step 3 Cut a 5" piece of the orange grosgrain ribbon and attach this in a loop to the side opposite the twine (this will hang up and the twine will hang down) of the popsicle stick. Cover your popsicle stick by adhering your desired piece of printed paper on both sides, trimming all the edges to match up with the stick. Finish by coloring any wood edges of the popsicle stick with the blue marker. Insert this inside your envelope.
