My Favorite Place- Flower Card

Hello, Crafty Friends! Mitsyana Wright here, back again and now officially part of the New Lori Whitlock Creative Team! Woohoo!!   I have this wonderful Flower Card Tutorial to share with you all using one of the flower files from Lori’s Bird Tree Flower Bundle Set. (here in the Silhouette Store)

This card is perfect to give to your significant other or your bestie.   And makes a great ‘feel good’ or ‘just because’ type card, because you don’t need a special holiday to let someone know you’re thinking of them.

I used my Sizzix eclips and ecal software to cut the flower file #6 from the bundle set. I sized the flowers to 3″ tall and cut two sets of flowers.

I inked edges of my die cuts for more depth, choosing an ink one or two shades darker than my cardstock.

Then attached the layers of the flowers together using a glue pen.

Once both flower pots were assembled, I snipped off the ‘pot’ to of one of the flower cuts, just leaving the stemmed flowers intact.

I used this shape from Lori’s 5 Labels set, to create a card mat & shadow, and sized it to 3.460″ x 4.406″ (white cardstock) and 3.66″ x 4.606″ (brown cardstock).

I layered the pieces together using Xyron Mega Runner and attached it to a matted A2 Sized card base (patterned paper “mat” measures 4″ x 5.25″).  Next, I attached double stitched ribbon along across the bottom of the card and trimmed off the ends.  Then, I attached both flower cuts. Stacking one on top of the other and placing the trimmed one in the back.   I used a stamping tool to stamp my sentiment onto the front of the card.  Finally, I attached the little bow with a dab of strong clear glue.

And here is my finished card…

I really love the detailed layers on these flowers!!! These were so much fun to make! I’m sure these flowers will bring a smile to anyone’s face!!  Hope you all enjoyed this tutorial and give these pretties a go!

HAVE FUN CREATING!
