If you follow my blog – and thank you! – you know that I love to experiment with any kind of flower card design. And I have mentioned before that I am really enjoying the extra space on slimline cards to be able to add even more of the details and ideas that I get when I am inspired. This card certainly shows how much extra fun you can have with that extra space!
For this card I used the Rubbernecker Slimline Solid Scallop with Holes, Slimline Inside Circles, Tall Terracotta Pots, Watering Cans, Tall Buckets, Tulip Tops, Tiny Flower Buds, Flower Buds, Tulip Stems, Leaves and Greenery and Small Butterflies.
Card Base and Scallop Layer
- Cut a white 8.50″ x 7.00″ card base and score it down the center at 3.50″.
- Cut a 3.25″ x 8.25″ piece of yellow cardstock and attach it to the card base using ATG adhesive.
- Use white cardstock to cut the solid slimline.
- Place the solid slimline back on the cutting platform, line up the inside circle slimline in the center and run through the machine. Note: You can use a magnetic platform to hold the inside slimline in place but I had no problem keeping it in place on the platform when I ran it through the machine.
- Cut a 2.00″ x 7.00″ piece of white cardstock and attach it to the back of the slimline scallop layer using strips of mounting tape.
- Apply strips of mounting tape to the back edges of the slimline scallop layer and attach it to the card base.
The Flower Pot, Watering Can and Bucket
- Cut the terracotta pot using yellow cardstock and the watering can and bucket using gray cardstock.
- Use mini applicators to apply orange and brown ink to the terracotta pot, the bucket and watering can.
- Cut the foliage for the flower arrangements using green cardstock and yellow cardstock to cut the flowers.
- Apply touches of light orange ink to all the flowers using a mini applicator.
- Form the flowers using a small tipped stylus and molding pad.
- Use glossy accents to attach the tulip tops to the tulip stems and then arrange them in the watering can and attach with glossy accents.
- Attach the foliage sections to the flower pot and bucket using glossy accents.
- Use glossy accents to attach the tiny flowers to the foliage.
- Apply pieces of mounting tape to the back of each flower arrangement and attach inside the circle frame openings.
- Cut small butterflies using yellow cardstock and apply touches of light orange ink using a mini applicator.
- Attach the butterflies to the scallop layer using glossy accents. Attach tiny pre made white Nuvo Crystal drops to the center of each butterfly using glossy accents.
