Step 1: Using your 12-inch Straight Trimmer, cut a sheet of Cloud Cardstock to measure 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, then score the paper straight down the center to create a card. Cut the a piece of patterned paper to measure 4-1/2″ x 3-1/2″ and adhere it to the center of the card using your Tape Runner.

Step 2: Adhere the decorative fans to the card as shown using your Tape Runner. Cover the back of the “Cheers to you!” sticker using a few Foam Squares, then adhere it to the fans as shown.

Step 3: To complete the card, add the flower gem for a little shimmer!



Step 1: Using your 12-inch Straight trimmer, cut the Cloud Cardstock to measure 12″ x 1″ 3/4″ and the rainbow pattered paper to measure 12″ x 1/4″. Using the Cloud strip as your base, mount the rainbow strip across the bottom of the base using your Tape Runner.

Step 2: Using the Banner Flag Punch, punch 14 flags from the pink patterned paper. Then, adhere the pieces to the back of the border base using your Tape Runner.

Step 3: Arrange the embellishments as shown. Once satisfied with the placement, adhere embellishments using your Tape Runner. To complete the border, adhere the heart sticker to the cake using a Foam Square. Then, add a few more Foam Squares to the “Have Your Cake & Eat it Too!” sticker and adhere the sticker to the far right-side of the border as shown.
