Create the card using the Fresh Fig card base from the April 2018 Paper Pumpkin kit – May Good Things Grow. Trim the tan mat to 3.5″ by 1″ and adhere it to the card with Fast Fuse. Trim the stickers to 3.5″ and adhere them above and below the mat. Color the wooden embellishments with markers and sponge daubers. Then, attach them to the card using Tacky Glue or glue dots. Stamp the “Happy Birthday” sentiment in Tranquil Tide and then sponge around the edges using Powder Pink. Attach the sentiment to the card using dimensionals or other foam adhesives.
Color the embellishments with Powder Pink, Fresh Fig, Berry Burst, Tranquil Tide, Lemon Lime Twist and Soft Suede. Use the markers for fine detail and the sponge daubers to cover larger areas.
To create the bookmark, trim the tan mat 2″ wide and then punch it with the Scalloped Tag Topper or other tag punch. Stamp the “May good things grow all year long” sentiment using Fresh Fig ink. Attach the floral embellishments from the Paper Pumpkin kit using glue dots or Tacky Glue. Loop a 7 to 8″ piece of Lemon Lime Twist ribbon through the tag.
