This project is brought to you by Latrice Murphy from Any Occasion.
I have been waiting for spring for a long time here in Illinois and it’s finally arrived. This has gotten me in the mood to create projects with flowers, so naturally I thought some floral cards would be great to have on hand in order to brightened someone’s day. First off, I have to tell you that these were extremely easy to create using my Silhouette Die Cutting Machine on the Print and Cut setting. I tried a few techniques to make them more customized and dimensional.
- Silhouette Die Cutting Machine (Or you can print an image and hand-cut it out)
- Various Distress Inks
- Various stamps
- Glossy Accents
- 3-D adhesive
- Sewing machine (optional)
I did some background stamping and inked the edges to created a bold background for these orange flowers. I layered two of the cuts for dimension. I also added glittered gems to the flower centers.
Warm Thoughts Card:
This got put on a pre-made dotted card base with bold yellow cardstock. I stitched that on after inking the edges. I then added my sentiment on a banner with a little washi tape. The rose got some dimension with a second flower being place on top. I finished the smaller flowers off with glossy accents and glitter.
Miss You Card:
This large set of three roses made for a fun card with simple misting and a doily in the background. I added some twine behind it for more texture and the sentiment banner hangs from the side. One rose was finished with glossy accents.
The last card was created with my favorite image. The detail on the cut was amazing, thorns and all. I stamped the back with dots and inked the edges. The flower I layered with a double flower and added a touch of glitter on it. The sentiment was stamped on the bottom in orange and again with the black outline.
I will be making lots of sets of these cards for gifts – they were that fun to make!
