Flower Cards and Instructional Video

By: Kimberly Crawford

Make your own floral embellishments for card making or other paper crafts with this project and video tutorial. Learn how to do placemat cutting with this paper craft video.


Flower Card 1 Flower Card 2


Materials:

Card 1, You are Such a Good Friend:

  • Stamps-Mint Motif (Very Square, Very Square Sentiments)
  • Ink (Versamark Watermark) (Palette-Seascape, Belle Rose, Giverny, Burnt Umber)
  • Spellbinders die templates (Classic Scalloped Circles, Classic Circles, Classic Rectangles Large)
  • Cardstock
  • Twine
  • Button

Card 2, Thank You So Very Much:

  • Stamps-Mint Motif (Very Square, Very Square Sentiments), Ink-Palette (Noir, Belle Rose, Landscape)
  • Clearsnap Colorbox Chalk (Creamy Brown)
  • Patterned paper-October Afternoon (Thrift Shop)
  • Felt-Art Craft (Ivory)
  • Brad-Basic Grey (Origins)
  • Spellbinders die templates (Classic Scalloped Borders Petite, Blossom, Big Scalloped Circles, Classic Circles)

Instructions:

One of the fun discoveries I have made with Very Square images, is the ability to cut images from the backgrounds and make your own embellishments. Each of the squares measures 1.75” x 1.75,” giving you some space to cut or punch shapes, on the small side, but as you can see in the cards above, perfect for card size!  I made a video to show you how to cut shapes from your images. I am calling it Placement Cutting, for lack of a better term!
 

 

With Card 2, here is another peek at the same technique. On this flower, I cut into the center, like on the video. It gives the flower some more dimension. Oh and just to note-the scalloped border is felt cut with a Borderabilities. Loving that! :)
