    A Rose for You Card:
    Step A: Die cut a rose card from White chipboard and a blank card from Kraft chipboard.
    Step B: Apply desired vinyl transfer (or letter that spell out desired saying) to the front of the rose card.
    Step C: Add a strip of Goil Foil Rose tape down the left side of the blank White card, then wrap Gold Foil Rose tape on the two right side corners.
    Step D: Add adhesive to the back of the White card. Adhere it into the back side of the Kraft chipboard card.

    Foil Tape Envelope Liner:
    Step A: Measure the width of the envelope you are using. Subtract 3/8" of this width, to get the envelope liner width.
    Step B: Tear off a piece of wax paper that is wider than your envelope width and trim it to 4-3/4".
    Step C: Open envelope flap. Lay the envelope on top of the wax paper, centering the width. Trace the outside edge of the flap onto the wax paper with a pencil. (Tip: the traced outside edge of the envelope is the same angle needed for the envelope liner once you have passed the gummed edge of the envelope.) Fold the wax paper at four inches down from the traced edge. Keep the traced edge wax paper portion on top. Lay the wax paper on top of a grid cutting mat. Note the grid lines through the wax paper. Center the point of the envelope evenly on the grid.
    Step D: Cut a first piece of Gold Foil Rose tape long enough so that it will extend about 1" above the flap trace line and about 1" or so below the folded wax paper edge. Lay this first piece of tape vertically down the center of the wax paper. The tape below the folded edge will extend below the folded edge and stick to the cutting mat. Cut and lay down a second piece of tape vertically to the right side of the first tape, matching the pattern of the tape. Cut and lay down a third piece of tape vertically to the left side of the first tape, matching the pattern of the tape. Continue adding tape to the wax paper until you have covered the entire width. (Tip: it is OK if you extend beyond the sides of the wax paper.)
    Step E: Place a ruler parallel and about 1" away from the folded wax paper edge, covering all the tape that is sticking to the cutting mat. Cut across the tape with a craft knife to even out the bottom tape ends. If any tape extends beyond the width of wax paper from last part of Step D, cut that off now.
    Step F: Cut only through a single layer of wax paper along the flap trace line. Make sure that the second layer of wax paper is kept out of the way. Use a craft knife to cut on the trace line, which will cut off the excess tape and wax paper above the line. Refold the wax paper at the bottom edge. (Tip: make sure that the excess tape is not sticking to the wax paper.) Pick up the envelope with the back facing you and the flap still open. Insert your left hand fingers into the envelope to open it up. Insert and slide the tape/wax paper carefully into the envelope - leading with the exposed tape ends. Do not let the tape stick down yet. Continue sliding the tape/wax paper into the envelope until the trace line edge is just below the gummed line of the envelope flap. Once you have the desired placement, press the exposed tape down through the outside of the envelope.
    Step G: With your left hand, hold firmly on the envelope where the exposed tape is stuck down. With your right hand, hold onto the long wax paper end and begin pulling it away from the envelope. This will release the tape from the wax paper and you can press the tape into place to create the tape envelope liner.
