A quick tip for tying bows - adhere the ribbon to the back of the card and then use tiny pieces of double sided tape to temporarily stick the card to the table. Tie the bow . It is easy enough to pry the card loose again.
To get the' Sending Hugs' and 'Hello' were cut from pearlised card with my Silver Bullet. I never get bored of watching that machine cut text! To make them stand proud, I applied hot glue to the backs and allowed it to dry, then stuck them on to the cards. (Don't have glue dots here!) You could also use small gems, maybe ones that are in colours you don't use often!
The 'just a note' was cut out in vinyl on acetate, I used a transparent double sided gel tape to adhere it.
