STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

Card is 5" x 7" and cut from light pink cardstock. Cut white mat layer at 4 3/4" x 6 3/4". The black (chalkboard) layer is cut at 4 1/2" x 6 1/2". Ink the edges of the black layer with white ink and also smudge some on the front to make it look like a blackboard.
Cut the letters from vinyl. You can cut them all from one color or add some colors to the arrow and swirls. Weed the vinyl and apply to the front of the card using transfer tape.
Cut the banner from patterned paper. I used my Imagine to print the patterned paper. The banner is cut at 1 1/4", using Birthday Bash. The letters on the banner are made using the Monogram Seals Cuttlebug Embossing Plus folder. I inked the letters with black ink. If you don't want to personalize your card, you can always put "Hello" on the banner, or leave it plain.
Add some ribbons to each side of your card. String your banner -- I used DMC Memory Thread. You can also use twine. Attach the banner on top of the ribbons at each corner. Add a bow to each corner. I curled the ends of the Memory Thread around a chopstick.
Make the flower using the Cuttlebug Daisy Quilling Kit. I cut two of the large petal strips from light yellow cardstock, one of the small petal strip from off-white cardstock, and three leaves. Ink the edges of the petal strips. Roll your flower. When complete, brush with Glossy Accents and sprinkle with coarse glitter. Glue the flower to the front of the card.
