I really love this card. Its looks so effective and it is very ease to make.
I found it on Pinterest, and thought that it would be a great card to share.
I’m sorry about the shaking on the video as I’m colouring in, and I also forgot to tell you that I use watercolour paper for the flowers as it can withstand a lot more water than our regular White Daisy card stock.
So here are the measurements, video and cutting guide:
Card: 5-1/2’ x 4-1/4’
Front Panels: 1st 2-1/2’ x 2-1/2’ White Daisy
2nd 2-3/4’ x 2-3/4’ Card Stock
Inside Panels: 1st 4-5/8′ x 3-3/8’ White Daisy
2nd 5-1/4’ x 4’ Card stock
Stamp sets: Hawaiian Hibiscus B1527 and Joyful Birthday B1419
- Open the Card and place into you trimmer on the 8-1/2’ side at the 3’
- Place the blade on the cutting arm @ 2-1/2’ and cut down to 4-7/8’
- Turn and place the card in on the 5-1/2’ side @ the 3’
- Place the blade @ the 5/8’ mark and cut down to 3’
- With the card facing you, flip the top corner toward you and press the side flat.
- Add some tape runner to the bottom of the square and attach to the card.
- Stamp the greeting at the bottom of the card.
- Attach the inside panels to the inside of the card.
- Attach the two squares to the front of the card.
- Using memento ink, stamp the flower and two leaves onto some watercolour paper
- Using watercolour pencils, colour in the centre of the flower in a radiating out pattern from heavy to light. Do the same with the leaves, the darker green in the middle and the lighter green on the outer edges.
- Using the fin tip paint brush and water, gently draw the colour from the inside to the edge of the flower .and for the leaves, blend the two colours together.
- Colour the centre stamen in yellow and blend the pencil strokes.
- Fussy cut out the flower and leaves, and using 3D foam attach them to the front of the card.
