  1. Fancy Flower Card

    Cut out a layer of patterned paper to fit the card front and attach it to the card, using flat tape or a glue runner

  2. Fancy Flower Card

    Using the 50x50mm square layering die, cut out 9 squares from the Mid Green cardstock

  3. Fancy Flower Card

    Then cut out 9 squares using the 42x42mm die from the Kraft coloured cardstock

  4. Fancy Flower Card

    Die cut 16 flowers in one of your patterned papers, that is a contrast paper to the one used for the card base.

  5. Fancy Flower Card

    Then punch out 8 smaller floral shapes in the same Mid Green cardstock as used in the base squares.

  6. Fancy Flower Card

    Punch out 8 of the smallest floral shape in patterned paper, this is the same as the base layer paper.

  7. Fancy Flower Card

    Use Pearl drops on the smallest flower petal shapes, just adding one dot in the centres, then let dry approx 30-40minutes.

  8. Fancy Flower Card

    Take 8 of the larger flower shapes and scrunch them all up into a ball and then carefully reopen then

  9. Fancy Flower Card

    Ink the edges of the other 8 of the larger flowers

  10. Fancy Flower Card

    Pinch the petals of the Mid Green flowers that you have punched/die cut out

  11. Fancy Flower Card

  13. Fancy Flower Card

    Using brown ink stamp a sentiment onto one of the Kraft card squares

  16. Fancy Flower Card

    Add a Icon stamp onto 3 of the Kraft card squares, I stamped in all 4 corners of the squares.

  17. Fancy Flower Card

    Using brown ink, blend ink around the edges of the Kraft card squares

    When all the Mid Green squares are positioned on the card front

    Add 3D foam to the back of the stamped sentiment square

  22. Fancy Flower Card
