How many of us have loved ones that could use getting a pretty missing you card in the mail? Social distancing is taking a toll on many people these days. I have read so many stories on Facebook of people missing their moms, dads, kids, grand kids, grandparents, boyfriends, girlfriends, sisters, brothers, etc. I thought this was the perfect time to make this beautiful floral card with the missing you sentiment from the Rubbernecker Kittie Says Phrases #1 set. The flower was made using the Organic Shapable Daisy paired with the Large Ivy and Honeycomb.
The Honeycomb Layer and Card Base
- Cut a piece of white cardstock 5.25″ x 4.00″.
- Place the cardstock on the cutting platform and line up the Honeycomb die in the lower corner.
- Run the cardstock and die through the die cutting machine.
- Apply strips of mounting tape around the edges of the layer and small pieces around the honeycomb design and attach it to the bright pink card base. Note: Several small pieces of mounting tape were needed around the cutout to keep the center of the design from collapsing in on the card base.
The Flower and Foliage
- Use bright pink cardstock to cut two sections of the flower and green cardstock to cut two foliage layers and large ivy.
- Place the flower layers face down on the molding pad and form the petals using a large round stylus.
- Place the flowers face up on the molding pad and push down in the center using the small round stylus.
- Finish the petals by turning the edges backwards and forwards using needle nose pliers. Check out my Flower Shaping video tutorial and step by step tutorial to see more details on how I made this flower.
- Attach the flower sections together using glossy accents.
- Form the pink flower centers using a small round stylus and the tiny green flower centers using a small tipped stylus and molding pad.
- Use glossy accents to attach the pink and green flower centers to the flower.
Assemble the Flower, Foliage and Sentiment
- Attach the two larger foliage sections to the card base using glossy accents.
- Use a large amount of glossy accents to attach the flower to the card base. Note: I use my paper piercer to go in under the top row of petals and push down in several places to make sure the flower adheres well to the base.
- Tuck the ivy sections in under the petals of the flower and attach with glossy accents.
- Form the tiny pink flowers using a small tipped stylus and molding pad and then attach them to the ivy using glossy accents.
- Cut a white strip of cardstock and stamp the sentiment using Nocturne ink.
- Apply mounting tape to the back of the sentiment and attach it to the card base.
