Painted Blooms MUM Card - Trimcraft DT



Hello I have a +Trimcraft Ltd DT card to share with you today.  Have you seen those pretty Flower topped paperclips in the new Dovecraft Painted Blooms collection?  They are so cute and I just had to use them along with the pretty papers and other matching embellishments to create this tag style bunting card.  This card would be good for Mother’s Day or Mum’s Birthday.

Step By Step:
  1. Score and fold A4 Dovecraft White card in half, trim down to create a 7 ½” x 5 ½” card base with fold across the top. Add a rectangle of striped Painted Blooms paper to card front leaving a white border all around.
  2. Cut Painted Blooms pattern paper approx. 6 5/8” x 4 5/8” and mat onto slightly larger white card using D/S tape, mat onto card front.  Using a white pen add a faux stitch detail around edges of pattern paper.
  3. Adhere a strip of lace ribbon across top of card, allow ends to overhang edges and trim at an angle, seal with clear drying glue to prevent fraying.  Glue a green mini bow to each end.
  4. Using the FE Scalloped Circle dies cut 3 smaller circles and 2 larger circles from Vellum (sized to fit onto tags).  Take 3 Different shaped Painted Bloom tags and add faux stitching all around these and the vellum circles using a white pen.
  5. Die cut letters to spell MUM from white glitter card using the FE Alphabet dies.  Glue a letter onto each small vellum circle and then again onto a larger circle.  Glue each letter to a tag using clear drying glue throughout.
  6. Take 3 flower paperclips and arrange across lace ribbon, use 3D foam to adhere at angles as desired.  Add 3D Foam to the back of each tag before slipping them onto the paperclips.  Arrange as required before pressing down to adhere.
  7. To finish, add a strip of Flower Tape across the bottom of the card.
