Today’s quick and easy flower card looks like you’ve been stamping all day and takes mere minutes!
We know how much having cards that you can make in just minutes is helpful. We designed one of latest Paper Pads – our Delightful Dahlia – to allow you to do just that. Here’s an example – this quick and easy flower card is made with just a couple spins through a die cutting machine, a tiny bit of inking and adhesive. Easy peasy!
Julie put this together for us and we love her little trick for her little die cut greeting. Read on and get all the scoop.
Julie started by cutting her background paper design from the Paper Pad with the largest die from our Nested Rectangle Stitch set. She also cut a solid color with one of the dies from our Mini Slimline Nested With Stitch set and then a piece of white card stock with a die one size smaller. Julie says “The mini slimline dies make excellent panels for regular sized cards!”
While she had her machine out, Julie cut some of the bright pink dahlias and leaves from one of the printed sheets in the pad with the coordinating die, cutting more of the same shapes from white thin craft foam. She also cut a piece of bright pink paper using our Love With Flowers die.
Julie adhered her printed die cut flowers and leaves to the foam shapes to give them more weight and dimension. You can see the effect in this image:
She then snipped out the word “love” from the pink die cut, saving the flowers for another project.
And last, because she wanted to tone down the minty-ness of the green paper, Julie sponged a little Beachside Color Fuse Ink from Set #9 around the edges of her green die cut layer.
Now to assemble! Julie adhered her patterned paper onto a white card base and then added her die cut layers to that, popping up the white layer with some thin foam adhesive.
She added her flowers using dimensional adhesive for more depth and then popped on her die cut word.
As a final touch Julie added some tiny metallic pearls to give this masterpiece a touch of bling. Just gorgeous!
If you could see this in real life you would NEVER believe it is a quick and easy flower card and guess what that means? Neither will the people you send it to! And since you can make a whole stack of these with the Paper Pad and the coordinating die, this makes this card super cost effective, too!
