Floral Reflections Card

A lovely floral card suitable for almost any occasion. Simply add a peel off sticker to make this card into a birthday card or Mother’s day card or any other occasion!

What you will need to make this card:

  1. 5″ x 5″ (125 x 125) Square white card blank
  2. Pearlised red / dark pink paper
  3. Decorative border craft punch or crafty edger punch
  4. Reflections Die-Cut Decoupage – Floral #752
  5. Mixed Butterflies Peel Off Sheet – Diamond Silver
  6. Wording Peel Off Sheet (optional)
  7. Double sided sticky tape
  8. Sticky Foam Pads
  9. Ruler, Craft Knife, Craft Cutting Mat

How to make:

Punch a strip of decorative border using the red / dark pink pearl paper and the border craft punch. Cut the decorative border strip that you created to size to fit onto the right hand side of the card blank. Use double sided sticky tape to stick the border to the card blank.

Take the top floral image from the decoupage sheet and build it up using sticky foam pads on the left hand side of the card blank.

To make the 3D butterfly shape, you need 3 butterfly stickers from the diamond silver butterfly peel off sheet. Folding two of the stickers in half you stick one half of each of them back to back to the third butterfly. You then stick the two sticky halves that are folded back to the card blank at the top left of the decoupage image to look like the butterfly is flying towards the flowers. Then fold the butterfly wings up and the butterfly pops up in a 3D type style.

You can either leave your card as it is or you can finish your card off by choosing a wording peel off sticker that is suitable for your occasion and sticking it at the bottom of the card.

Pink Springtime Card

This bright and cheerful card is perfect to brighten up any Spring occasion! We have used the word ‘Spring’ on our card here but you can replace the wording with anything to make this the ideal card for your occasion. It would be fantastic as a Mother’s Day card, a birthday card or a bright springtime Easter card!

What you will need to make this card:

  1. A6 card blank
  2. Mixed pink, lilac, purple & pink flowery papers
  3. 7mm organza pink ribbon
  4. Super Daisy Punch
  5. Super Flower Punch
  6. Large Daisy Punch
  7. Large Flower Punch
  8. Regular Daisy Punch
  9. Regular Flower Punch
  10. Mini round brads
  11. Alphabet peel off sheet
  12. Sticky Foam Pads and Double sided sticky tape
  13. Ruler, Craft Knife, Scissors, Craft Cutting Mat

How to make:

Take the A6 card blank and cover the top half with plain pink paper and the bottom half with flower patterned paper.

Next use double sided sticky tape to stick a strip of the 7mm organza pink ribbon along the join where the two papers meet, trim off any excess ribbon.

Punch out some flowers and daisies out of lilac, purple & bright pink paper. Tip: Use contrasting colours to the papers used to cover the top and bottom of the card.

Make a tiny hole in the centre of each flower. At this stage you can fold the punched flowers and daisies down the centre of each petal and then open up for a more raised 3D effect like the flowers shown in the picture, alternatively you can leave the flowers flat.

Layer the flowers and daisies together using different contrasting colours on each layer, experiment until you get the best effect flowers that you are happy with. Make 2 larger and 1 smaller flower. Once you are happy with a layered flower, push a round brad through the centre of the flower and bend back the prongs to secure the flower layers together.

Mount the flowers onto the card blank using sticky foam pads in a similar pattern to shown in the picture.

Finish your card off by sticking either individual peel off letters or a peel off wording sticker to spell out whatever occasion you want on the top left hand of the card at an angle. Choose whatever wording is suitable for your occasion.
