It looked cool, just the wavy line, but then I got to to thinking of how it reminded me of a really fancy cake or sugar coated candy, which led to the dots. I covered narrow scraps of paper with the tape (only one side this time, since I was less concerned with adhering it), then leaving the backing on, punched it out with several circle punches. Again, because the backing is still on, the punches glide right through! Then I coated in glitter and set up the card. Once again, it looked cool as it was, but I had kind of backed into a corner. I didn't leave a good amount of space for a greeting. So my only option was to make a small layer. I cut out a square from chocolate, then used scalloped scissors on it. Then I stamped the happy birthday greeting in the 3 main colours, stamped the gift, coloured it, cut it out, then popped it up with foam tape. Because I had already brought the chocolate colour into it at this point, and I had this pre-knotted ribbon just sitting on my desk, I decided to add that too :D

I saw this cute little manufactured tag card today. It was about 3x3, and had this wavy, glitter covered line along the right side. I was inspired. I really wanted to do a glitter covered wavy line, but first I had to plan it out. It made the most sense to cover BOTH sides entirely with my double-sided tape (I've got the type with removable backing). Then, I drew my wavy line, cut it out, removed tape from ONE side and coated in glitter. Voila! One extremely sparkly wave made! Putting the tape on first ensures full coverage, less likelihood of patching being needed, and ease of cutting (as long as the backings still on).
