Hello, over at +Trimcraft Ltd we have a brand new card shape of the month to play with and it’s perfect for Mother’s Day. I have used the lovely Painted Blooms papers and the First Edition nesting blooms dies to create the flowers. The flowers lift out to reveal the message.
Step By Step:
- Follow the Trimcraft Card Shape of the Month instructions (by Maxine) here: https://www.trimcraft.co.uk/blog/march-2017/card-shape-of-the-month-flower-pot-card-tutorial which includes the template to create the flower pot card base.
- Use Painted Blooms paper to cover the front of the plant pot and ink around with a brown ink to define the shape.
- Stamp the Dovecraft clear stamp ‘To the World you are a Mother…’onto the stalk tab section using black ink and allow to dry.
- Create flowers from Painted Blooms papers in the 6x6 pad by diecutting with the FE Nesting Blooms shapes. Snip into each flower shape and glue 1 petal on top of 1 other to create a shaped flower with 5 petals instead of 6. Layer up some flowers using 3D foam pads.
- Add extra detail to flower centres by cutting them from white glitter card and adding fringe paper to them.
- Cut leaves from green FE Textured card using the FE Nesting Blooms dies and cutting into individual petals. Score a line down each, ink edges and shape using a pokey tool or pencil. Snip some leaves in half to create smaller ones.
- Arrange flowers and leaves as desired and glue into place on the circle top of the sentiment tab, leave to dry.
- Add ‘with love’ ribbon to front of plant pot. Die cut 2 tag shapes using FE tags dies and stamp ‘Best Mum’ on to white tag using Dovecraft clear stamp. Add tags to plant pot along with a pink adhesive gem.
- To finish, add pink adhesive gems to flower centres and slide sentiment stem / flowers into plant pot.
