Cover the remainder of the blank with pink plaid paper. Wrap thick black ribbon around the join and tie in a bow in the centre.

Stamp a large flower heart onto white card with embossing ink. Cover with clear embossing powder and gently treat with a heat gun. When cool, colour in the flower in pink and black.

Cut out the heart, matt onto black card and trim, leaving a narrow border. Attach to the pink section of the blank and add three gems to the hear TOP TIP: Try heating embossing powder from the back of the card. It gives you a bit more control and will help prevent overheating, which causes the powder to disperse

METHOD: Hello Gorgeous

Stamp a girl in black onto white card with a sentiment underneath. Cover with clear embossing powder and set with a heat gun. Colour her in with shades of pink, black and flesh tones

Trim so that she measures 6cm x 14cm. Matt onto pink spotty paper, leaving a 2mm border around the bottom and side edges. Wrap and tie pink ribbon around the top and stick onto a 7.5cm x 15cm piece of pink graph paper so the top edges line up.

Adhere to the top of an 8cm x 17cm white blank. Add two decorative pins to the ribbon.

METHOD: Just For You

To make a shaped side-fold landscape blank, die cut two of the largest Labels Eight shapes. Score a line 1.5cm in along the left side of one. Line up and attach to the other, making sure you only apply adhesive within the scored edge.

Die cut another large label in green card and one in white the next size down. Matt the white label onto the green one and attach to the unscored side of the blank.

Stamp a large dahlia onto white card and colour in with purple. Stamp a large leaf and two smaller ones onto green dotty paper. Cut all the images out and fix to the lower left of the blank.
