Hi there! Karen here today. I only recently got my hands on the amazing new flowers here at Elizabeth Craft Designs. They are so much fun to play with! In my post today, I show two fun examples of cards using the new flowers.
Here’s how I created this fun card.
- Cut a 8-1/2″x11″ piece of Soft Finish Cardstock in half length-wise and score/fold in the middle to create a top-fold card base.
- Die cut a card front using the Stitched Rectangle Dies (Patterned orange cardstock)
- Cut two strips of green paper at 1/2″ and 3/4″ by 5″ and add them to the left side of the card front. (I adhered mine just inside the rectangle stitching)
- Die cut a large Fitted Circle and trim a bit from one side, and layer it over the green strips.
- Die cut a small and medium size of Florals 1 from light yellow cardstock and ink edges with Dried Marigold Distress Ink. Die cut the leaf from the Florals 1 from light green cardstock and ink the edges with Mowed Lawn Distress Ink.
- Shape the flower and leaf. (For the flower, I use a simple foam pad with a stylus and shape in circular motions on the back-side and then “punch” into the middle on the front. I then work the flower and leave a bit with my fingers until I like the look of it.)
- Add the flower and a sentiment to the card front.
As a fun embellishment, I put some of the White Craft Drops on a piece of “waste” release sheet from the Double Sided Adhesive. When dry, I color them with a Copic Marker, and then they can be glued onto the project – either as a flower center or just an embellishment.
The next card was made with a FuN sentiment stamp, For You.
On this card, I stamped that amazing sentiment and cut it out with Fitted Circles. In this card, I added the circles and strips before die cutting the card front, and I did not shape those fun flowers from the Florals 3 set. I think these flowers are super cute just flat as embellishments too.
Thank you for stopping by today!
Craftily yours, Karen
