Dimensional Paper Flowers on Clean and Simple Cards

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.

Adding dimensional paper flowers to a clean and simple card really kicks the interest up a notch. Click through to see how I formed my flowers.

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.

Hearts and Love

Today I’m sharing a clean and simple hearts and love sentiment Valentine card with tiny flowers and ivy leaf embellishments. I used the Rubbernecker Nested Rectangle Scallop, Love #2, Heart Outline Stitch, Small Flowers #2, Large Ivy, Small Ivy and Tiny Flower Buds.

I love the simplity of this red and white hearts and love Valentine card. Click thru to see how I layered the hearts and popped up the sentiment.

The Scalloped Layer and Card Base

  • Create an A2 sized card base using white cardstock.
  • Cut the scalloped rectangle using white cardstock.
  • Cut a red layer 1/4″ larger than the scalloped layer and attach them together using strips of mounting tape
  • Apply strips of mounting tape all the way around the back of the red and white rectangle layer and attach it to the card base.

The Love Sentiment

  • Cut the love sentiment using red cardstock.
  • Place a strip of double stick tape on a clean surface and roll up into a string to use on the back of the sentiment.

double stick tape 2

  • Attach the strip of tape to the back of the sentiment and attach it to the card base. Note: I like using rolled up double stick tape on the back of delicate die cut sentiments. It is thin enough not to show and yet holds the sentiment away from the card base.

 

I love the simplity of this red and white hearts and love Valentine card. Click thru to see how I popped up the sentiment.

The Hearts

  • Cut the hearts out using red and white cardstock.
  • Layer a white heart and red out line heart together and attach on the back using double stick tape.
  • Apply piece of mounting tape to the back of the two red hearts and attach them to the corner of the card base.
  • Attach a double layer of mounting tape to the white and red heart and attach between the two red hearts.

The Flowers and Ivy

  • Use red cardstock to cut the flowers and green cardstock to cut the ivy.
  • Trim two leaves off of an ivy branch and attach to the center heart using glossy accents.
  • Form the flowers using a stylus and molding pad.
  • Assemble the flower sections together and attach using glossy accents.
  • Attach the flowers to the ivy using glossy accents.
  • Finish by attaching two small ivy leaves and one tiny flower bud to the L and the E on the sentiment using glossy accents.

White on White Card Designs

White on white card designs are so elegant and are lovely to use for any occasion-birthday-wedding-sympathy-thank you.  Adding a tiny touch of color creates interest but doesn’t take away from the overall white on white design.  My project today was made using the Rubbernecker Circle Lattice and Best Friends

White on white card designs are perfect for any occasion. Click thru to see how I made this simple thank you card.

The Circle Lattice Frame

  • Cut the card base and circle lattice frame using white cardstock.
  • Remove all the negative parts and pieces of the circle lattice using a paper piercer.
  • Apply strips of mounting tape around the back of the circle lattice frame and attach it to the card base.

The Flowers and Sentiment

I fully intended to pull out one of my Rubbernecker flower sets to create this card.  As I was removing all the negative pieces from the circle lattice frame I noticed how most of the pieces were shaped like flower petals.  It struck me that I could create a pretty small flower with those pieces. 

  • Punch out 1/4″ circles to use as the flower base.
  • Use green cardstock to cut a small section of the circle lattice to use for the leaves.
  • Attach the white petals all the way around the circle base using glossy accents to create the flower.
  • Apply gloss accents to two green petals and attach them under and in between the white flower petals.
  • Punch out bright pink 1/8″ circles to use as flower centers and attach to the flowers using glossy accents.

 

KC Rubbernecker 5026D Circle Lattice Die 3 flower

  • Cut a strip of white cardstock, stamp the sentiment using versa and emboss with gold embossing powder.
  • Attach the sentiment to the front of the circle lattice frame using pieces of mounting tape.
  • Finish by attaching the flowers to the circle lattice frame using glossy accents.

Simple Handmade Card Designs

I have a few “go to” simple handmade card designs that work with almost any theme or occasion and this is one of my favorites.  This card creates an elegant feel of with the all white card base and touches of color added with the embellishments.  I made a pretty poinsettia Christmas card a couple of weeks ago with the exact same layout but using a different rectangle die for the sentiment layer, different flowers and foliage and a different color combination.  The poinsettia was replaced with a large multi loop bow. Same card design but with a totally different outcome. 

For this project I used the Rubbernecker Stamps Nested Rectangle Scallop w/holes, Large Ivy, Flower Buds and Beautiful Wishes.   I had extra branches of the Large Ivy with Flower Buds on my desk from my birdhouse project that I posted yesterday and thought I would create a quick card with them.

The Card Base and Sentiment Layer

  • Use white cardstock to cut an A2 sized card base and scalloped rectangle layer.
  • Secure the rectangle layer and the sentiment stamp in the MISTI.
  • Apply versa to the sentiment and stamp it on the rectangle layer.
  • Sprinkle on gold embossing powder and heat with the heat gun.
  • Adhere strips of mounting tape to the back of the rectangle layer and attach it to the card base.

The Ivy and Flower Stems

  • Use green cardstock to cut the large ivy branches. 
  • Cut the flower buds using purple cardstock.
  • Place the large ivy sections on the molding pad and score the leaves using the leaf tool.
  • Form the flowers using a small tipped stylus and molding pad.
  • Attach the flowers to the large ivy sections using glossy accents.
  • Apply glossy accents to the ivy branches and attach them to the top corner of the rectangle layer.
  • Finish by attaching a multi loop bow to the center of the ivy branches using glue dots.  Check out my multi loop bow video tutorial if you would like to see how I made my bow.

Clean and Simple Christmas Card

Today I’m sharing a clean and simple Christmas card made using the new Rubbernecker Stamps Winter Cocoa set paired with Nested Rectangle Scallop w/Holes, Tiny Leaves and the Merry Little Christmas sentiment.  I always like to have a few extra Christmas cards on hand for those “last minute card emergencies” that always seem to arise during the holidays.   The Winter Cocoa set is so fun and the decorative pieces give the opportunity to create images that can stand alone with a sentiment on a card front.  This card was fast and easy  and only took about 10 minutes to make.

Come see how I made this clean and simple Christmas card.

The Card Base and Sentiment

  • Cut the scalloped layer using white cardstock.
  • Secure the cardstock and sentiment in the MISTI.
  • Apply green ink to the sentiment and stamp and repeat if necessary to get a crisp image. I LOVE MY MISTI
  • Apply strips of mounting tape to the back of the scalloped layer and attach it to the red card base.

The Cocoa Mug

  • Cut the mug and decorative pieces using designer paper and red cardstock.
  • Use green cardstock to cut the tiny holly leaves and punch out a 1/8″ red circle.
  • Cut the candy cane using white cardstock and attach the red stripes to the cane using glossy accents.
  • Apply glossy accents to the scalloped mug top and the mug base and attach to the mug.
  • Coat the whipped cream piece with white embossing paste using your finger and set aside to dry.
  • Apply glossy accents to the lower edge of the whipped cream piece and attach to the mug.
  • Attach the candy cane to the back of the whipped cream and red and green sprinkles to the front of the whipped cream using glossy accents.
  • Apply pieces of mounting tape to the back of the mug and attach it to the white layer.

Come see how I made this fun clean and simple Christmas card.
