Step One

Start with white cardstock for card base that measures 5 6/8” x 11 1/2” and score at 5 3/4”.

Die cut the following dies using your die cutting machine;
2 x lattice 1 (IME043) die with dark brown cardstock.
2 x large fan (IME048) 1 using red cardstock and 1” dark brown cardstock.
2 x small fan (IME048) 1 with red and 1 with dark brown cardstock.
1 x Happy Birthday (IME101) with dark brown cardstock.
Note:  the dark brown fans will be used as a drop shadow for the red fans.

Step Three

With the large and small fans score from outer edge of each point toward the center then fold accordion
style to create the folds of the fans.
Step Four
Peel off 3 strips of 40 MM Be Creative tape (BC40) and place on red cardstock.  The strips should be large
enough to cover the smallest of the fan dies from (IME048) and 1 large and 1small flourish die from (IME020).

Step Five

Place the strips of cardstock with the tape on it over the dies and run through your die cutting machine.


a)  Remove the tape backing from one of the flourishes being careful not to touch the exposed sticky tape.
b)  Holding the flourish with the fine point tweezers generously cover the flourish with Apple Red (10MFP) micro fine glitter.
c)  Brush off excess glitter with a makeup brush or a swiffer duster sheet.
d)  Next burnish with your fingertip by rubbing the glittered area firmly.
e)  You can redip the flourish into the glitter and burnish again to get complete coverage.
f )  Glitter the other flourish and small red fan in the same way.

Tip:  The more you rub the shiner it will become.

Step Six

Attach the large flourish to the large red fan with glue or double sided tape.

Step Seven

Add pearls to the top of fan as shown in image.

Step Eight

Using foam pads or sticky dots, attach the dark brown fan backings to each fan to create a drop shadow effect.


• Place large lattice to card front.  Next attach the large fan over the lattice and add the small flourish to
the top right corner of your card.
• Cut the other lattice in half place on the inside of your card to the left side and using sticky dots or foam
pads add the fan to the bottom of the lattice.  Next place the Happy Birthday die cut to the right of the
lattice and fan to complete your card
• Create an ‘L’ shape frame with the straight line, peel off stickers to finish your card both inside and out.
