This flower bouquet card is perfect for lots of occasions!
As you might have guessed, I DO love making a flower bouquet card and this one uses the new Canterbury Bells die in the Kittie Kraft by Rubbernecker collection. There’s something so pretty about a bouquet of due cut flowers all in the same color against a white embossed background. The embossed white frame really sets it off and adds a touch of elegance.
The Embossed Frame Layer
- Cut an A2 Sized card base and a 5.50″ x 4.25″ layer using white cardstock.
- Secure the white layer in the embossing folder and run through the die cutting machine.
- Place the white layer back on the cutting platform, secure the scalloped oval die in place with a piece of masking tape and cut the opening.
- Cut a purple oval frame mat using an oval die one size smaller than the scallop die.
- Apply pieces of mounting tape around the front of the purple frame opening and attach it to the back of the white layer. Note: Take a look at my Frame Tutorial if you would like to see step by step photos of how I make my matted frames. For the tutorial I attached the mat frame section directly to the back of the frame layer using ATG adhesive.
- Apply strips of mounting tape to the back of the attached frame layers and attach to the card base.
Pretty Flower Bouquet
- Use purple cardstock to cut two sections of the Canterbury Bells and green cardstock to cut the stems.
- Cut three sections of the Branches and Leaves using green cardstock.
- Attach the bell flowers to the stems using glossy accents. Check out my How to Make Paper Flowers Step by Step Video One to see how I assembled the bells and stems and how I gently formed the bells using a round stylus.
- Begin designing the bouquet by attaching the flower stems together using glossy accents.
- Build the bouquet stem by stem and noting the direction of the how the bells are falling – left or right to create a natural looking bouquet.
- Watch my Hot to Make Paper Flowers Step by Step Video Two to see how I designed and attach the flowers together to create my bouquet. Note: I used several different kinds of flowers for the video bouquet but the steps of building the bouquet are exactly the same.
- Attach several of the large foliage sections to the back of the bouquet to create a green base.
- Attach a few extra foliage stems to the bottom of the bouquet using glossy accents.
- Apply a generous amount of glossy accents to the back of the bouquet and attach it to the card base.
- Finish by attaching a white organza bow using several glue dots.
- Watch my Multi Loop Bow Video to see how I make my blows. It’s much easier than you think.
Once you have the basics down on how to make one flower bouquet card, you can use all those same design concepts to create loads of other cards using different colored flowers and different flower shapes. You will never be without a card idea again!
