Cut card stock and designer series paper pieces to the following sizes using a Stampin' Trimmer:
- card from Tranquil Tide Card Stock at 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and scored at 4-1/4"
- 4" x 5-1/4" from Very Vanilla Card Stock

Mount the "another year" sentiment from the Balloon Adventures Photopolymer Set on Block I. Ink it up with the Tranquil Tide Ink Pad. Stamp it in the center of the top of the vanilla rectangle about 1/4" from the top.
Use the brush tip of the Lemon Lime Twist Marker to carefully color in the letters of "another year."
Adhere the designer paper rectangle to the bottom of the stamped vanilla rectangle.
Cut a 5" piece of the Gold 1/4" Natural Trim.
Pick out a gold tassel from the Mini Tassels Assortment. Slide the ribbon through the ring on the tassel.
Lay the ribbon piece across the card front so it hides the seam between the designer paper and the card stock. Flip the card front over and fold the ends of the ribbon over. Adhere them in place with pieces of Tear & Tape Adhesive across the ends. Don't worry about where the tassel is for the moment.
Adhere the card stock/designer paper rectangle to the front of the Tranquil Tide card.
Unlock the 1-1/4" Circle Punch. Slide the scrap of Lemon Lime Twist Card Stock inside and punch.
Unlock the 1" Circle Punch. Slide the scrap of Gold Foil Sheet inside and punch.
Use Tear & Tape Adhesive on the back of the foil circle to adhere it to the center of the Lemon Lime Twist circle.
Use Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere the circle stack to the card front so it is centered over the ribbon in the center of the card. Make sure the ring on the tassel is caught under the Dimensionals so it stays in place with the tassel going off to the right.
Pick out the small circle thinlit from the Eastern Medallions Thinlits that cuts out a flower shape. Place the square of Lemon Lime Card Stock on the Precision Plate on top of your Platform on your Big Shot. Place the thinlit on top. Place a Cutting Pad on top and run through the Big Shot. Use the Die Brush to remove the card stock if needed.
Carefully cut the flower image free using Paper Snips.
Use a Mini Glue Dot in the center of the flower cut out to adhere it to the center of the gold foil circle.
Adhere one of the larger gold circles from the Metallic Enamel Shapes in the center of the flower.
