    • Prima Sugarplum Roses, Eggplant     ( PRI-ROS3-543723   $3.99)
    • Ivory Ribbon, ¼” wide, about 12”
  • Tools


  • Fold the large piece of Posie Pink cardstock in half to form card base.
    The card opens on the right.
    Set aside.

  • To make the fan:
    • Cut each paper doily in quarters.
      You will only need one quarter of each of the gold and white doilies for this card.

    • Punch out a scallop circle using the marvy punch.
      Cut the scallop circle in quarters.
      You will need only one quarter of the scalloped circle.

    • Place your gold piece on your work surface.

    • Lay the white piece of doily on top of the gold but slightly lower so that you can see the top of the gold doily.

    • Place the green patterned paper scallop onto the white doily so that you can also see the top of the white doily.
      All three pieces should be layered on top of one another.

    • Using a ruler and an Xacto blade, trim the side edges of your layered papers to form a wedge, like a slice of pie.
      Do not trim the tops of the doilies, only the sides.

    • Once you are happy with the look, carefully glue all the pieces together (I used a glue dot between each layer).

  • Punch out a regulare circle and a feather from the Posie Pink cardstock.

  • Place your “fan” onto the large green patterned paper (5 ¼” x 4”).
    The bottom should point toward the lower right of the paper.

  • When you are happy with the position of the fan, add the Posie Pink circle underneath and glue everything to the green patterned paper.

  • Make a bow with your ribbon and attach it to the card just over the bottom of your “fan”.
    Fold the tails behind the green patterned paper and secure them with tape.

  • Attach the green patterned paper to the front of the card base.

  • Use glue dots to add the punched out feather to the card,just below the bow.

  • Add the paper rose to the center of the fan.

  • Add ivory pearls to the fan and the feather.
