Today I’ve created a clean and simple card with beautiful dimensional paper flowers and a simple sentiment.  There is something so elegant about an all white card base with popped up colorful flowers and foliage.  For this card I used the Rubbernecker 5106D Mixable Flower Stack, Tiny Flower Buds, Large Ivy. Rectangle Combo One Piece and the Thinking of You sentiment.

The A2 Card Base and Sentiment

  • Place the white card base in the MISTI and line up and secure the sentiment stamp in place.
  • Apply brown ink to the stamp and stamp it on the card base.
  • Use white cardstock to cut rectangle combination frames and attach the three layers together using double stick tape.
  • Apply mounting tape to the back of the frame and attach it to the card base.

Coloring and Forming the Flowers

  • Cut the flowers using white cardstock.  I cut three flower layers for each sized flower.
  • Apply Wild Honey ink to the flowers using a mini applicator.  Note:  I apply touches of ink along the back edge of each petal so the white edge doesn’t show through when the petals are formed.
  • Use needle nose pliers to roll the edges of each petal.  For the large flower I rolled one side of each petal backwards and one side upwards.  For the small flowers I clamped the pliers right in the middle of each petal and rolled both sides upward around the pliers.
  • Place each flower layer on the molding pad and push down lightly in the center with a small round tipped stylus.
  • Use glossy accents to attach the flowers together making sure each layer is offset to create a natural looking flower.
  • Use brown cardstock to cut the tiny flower buds, form them using a small tipped stylus and molding pad and attach them to the flower centers using glossy accents.

Arrange the Flowers and Ivy

  • Use green cardstock to cut the six ivy sections.
  • Apply glossy accents to the back of the large flower and attach it to the upper corner card base.
  • Tuck two of the full ivy sections under the large flower and attach using glossy accents.
  • Apply glossy accents to the two smaller flowers and attach them to the two ivy sections.
  • Cut the rest of the ivy sections apart and tuck them around the larger flowers to fill in the arrangement and attach using glossy accents.
  • Finish by using a shimmer pen to add a touch of sparkle to the tiny brown flower centers.
