Bloom! Handmade Greeting Card

By: Mary Ayers for Arnold Grummer's

Spring is in the air with these adorable handmade paper greeting cards from Arnold Grummer's Paper Making Kits and Supplies.  Just follow these 10 steps for your very own set!

Supplies:

  • Arnold Grummer's Angel Wings: Blue
  • Arnold Grummer's Angel Wings: Pink
  • Arnold Grummer's Gold Dust
  • Arnold Grummer's Papermill Complete Kit
  • Cardstock: white, bright pink, light blue
  • Paper fasteners: five yellow
  • Metallic gold sewing thread
  • Stamp set: Typewriter Alphabet from All Night Media (Plaid)
  • Sewing machine: regular or craft model
  • Scoring tool
  • 1/8" and 3/4" circle punches
  • Scissors, pencil, glue


Steps:

  1. Follow kit directions to make blue, pink and white handmade paper. Add a pinch of gold dust to the pink pulp, 2 blue angel wings to the blue pulp, and 2 pink angel wings to the white pulp. Remove seeds from angel wing petals to avoid brown spots in paper.
     
  2. Note: Mary uses the Papermill kit which makes 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" paper. She likes to recycle a 7" x 9" piece of cardstock with the inclusions (gold dust or petals), and iron it dry between sheets of wax paper.
     
  3. Cut a 7" x 10" rectangle from white cardstock. Score a line down the center and fold in half to make a 5" x 7" card.
     
  4. Cut a 4 1/2" square from pink handmade paper and glue to upper area of card.
     
  5. Cut five 1 1/2" squares from blue handmade paper. Glue symetrically to center of pink rectangle with corners touching.
     
  6. Draw a pencil line 1/8" from outside edge of pink rectangle, and diagonally through blue squares and around outside edge of blue squares.
     
  7. Sew a machine straight stitch along pencil lines with gold thread.
     
  8. Punch five 3/4" circles from white handmade paper. Cut uneven 'V' shapes around edges of circles to make flowers.
     
  9. Glue flowers to center of blue squares. Punch a 1/8" hole in the center of each flower. Attach paper fasteners to holes.
     
  10. Stamp "BLOOM" across bottom of card, using different color inks.
