This is how the card will be looking inside.
With the pair of compasses draw a circle 2” (5 cm) in diameter on the pastel paper. On the red paper draw a circle 1-1/2” (4 cm) in diameter and on the watercolor paper draw a circle 1-1/8” (3 cm) in diameter. Cut the circles using shaped scissors.
Fold the lace to make a bow.
Make a bow 2” (5.5 cm) long.
Tie a bow tightly and cut off the excess lace.
Push the red thread through the needle.
Run the needle into the creamy circle leaving 0,4” (1 cm) from the edge.
Sew the bow down to the circle with several stitches.
Fix the thread on the back side of the circle.
Make a knot.
Cut off the thread.
Stick the tape to the circle.
Adhere the circle to the card.
Run the needle with the thread into the right upper corner of the card.
Put the butterfly on the thread.
Sew the butterfly with several stitches.
Sew the second butterfly at the left upper corner.
In the same way sew down the shamrocks in the lower corners of the card.
Fold a light orange paper 5-1/2Х8” (14X20 cm) in half.
Cut its edges with shaped scissors. In the center cut half of a heart 2-1/2” (6 cm) in height.
Unfold the sheet of paper.
Stick the tape to the sheet of paper.
Adhere this sheet inside the card.
Fold a red square 1-3/4Х1-3/4” (4.5X4.5 cm) in half.
Step 30: Cut half of a heart using shaped scissors.
Unfold the heart.
Stick the tape to the heart.
Adhere the heart to the center of the card inside.
Stick the foam tape to the red and creamy circle.
Step 35: Adhere the red circle to the creamy one and the creamy circle to the red one. (The creamy circle is for any text or a photo). The card is finished!
