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.
