- Cardstock in a solid color
- Two pages of cardstock with the same flower motifs in a corresponding color
- Tacky craft glue
- Scrap of decorative ribbon trim
- Clothespins to hold your card while the glue dries
- 3-D self-sticking dots
- Small cuticle type scissors
- Ruler, pencil, and stylus (you may use a dried out ink pen in lieu of a stylus)
- Make the card. From the solid colored cardstock cut a piece 4 ¾” x 7 3/4.” Measure 3 ¼” down from the top edge and score with the stylus. Fold on the scored line to make a card.
- Measure 1 ¼” from the bottom edge and score with the stylus. Fold up. Put a dab of tacky glue on each side and hold with a clothespin till dry. (Card pocket made)
- Cut out a flower motif and adhere with tacky glue in a pleasing arrangement on the front of your card.
- Using the small scissors carefully cut out an exact copy of the motif you glued on the front of the card. Remove one side of the paper backing from two or more (depending upon how large your flower is) foam dots and attach to the flower on the card. Remove paper backing on these foam dots and place the flower motif on top making sure you have lined the flowers up exactly. The card now has a dimensional flower. Continue until you have used as many or as few flowers as desired.
- Glue a decorative ribbon trim down the side for an added touch.
