Good evening lovely crafters!
This is my first post on our new Blog site and I have to say it’s so much nicer to use! 🙂
Here is a card made a few weeks ago at our regular craft classes. We’ve had a lot of requests for the instructions for this one, so I hope you all enjoy making this card.
This card was made using Phills Sentimentally Yours Paper Pads and Chalkboard Stamp Collection. We have also used Sue Wilson Dies; Orange Blossom Petals and Orange Blossom Leaves, Madeleine and various distress oxides ink colours.
Stage 1 – Cut out all the layers and die cut shapes needed for your card.
- Card Blank – 19cm x 19cm
- Layer 1 – 18.5cm x 18.5cm (coloured with ink)
- Layer 2 – 18cm x 18cm – embossed with your choice of embossing folder
- Layer 4 – 18cm x 4cm (coloured with ink)
- Layer 5 – 18cm x 3.5cm – embossed with your choice of embossing folder
Stage 2 – Create your paper fold pieces using x2 sheets of the same paper pattern from one of the 8×8 Paper Pads. Don’t forget to glue down the folds as this makes it easier to stick the paper to the card after.
To make the instructions easier to follow I have attached a file that you can download and keep in your crafty stash!
Step 3 – Choose a coordinating Distress Oxide ink pad and, using a smoothie, colour the edges of the first layer and strip and also the plain part of the madeleine die. You can also colour some of your flowers if you wish.
Stage 5 – Choose a sentiment for your topper. You can use the same colour from your layers or the Black Soot Distress Oxide. Some of our lovely crafters did a banner instead of the circle topper which looks just as fab!
Stage 6 – Assemble your card layers, using foam tape where you wish to add dimension. Shape your flowers and arrange.
Stage 7 – Add some bling if you wish. Here our crafter has used Crystal Chips Glitter Jewels.
