Making Paper Flowers for Your Handmade Card Ideas
Making paper flowers is easy with the retiring framelits, Botanical Builder. I’m so sad to see these go because they are so versatile and make creating paper flowers for your handmade card ideas super easy!
This handmade card idea started off in a completely different direction and didn’t even have flowers on it. I had a few of these flowers on my craft space from a project I made a few days ago, and before I knew it my whole project had changed! Have you ever had that happen to you? 🙂 But who doesn’t love flowers? And I’m so very pleased with the final card. I added just a few rhinestones to the flower centers for a little extra dazzle!
I used another retiring product on this card design… a pattern from the Falling in Love Designer Paper — but it has already sold out.
You can see some of the delicate Very Vanilla Lace Trim just barely peeking out from underneath the card sentiment layer.
Of course, the dramatic card sentiment really catches your eye here. It comes from the One Big Meaning stamp set, which you can pick up in wood-mount or clear mount. I embossed it in white on the black card stock for a very bold look.
TIP: The greeting layer actually was cut out from the piece I mounted the patterned paper on using my Stampin’ Trimmer. You can do this by cutting all along the inside about 1/4″ or 1/2″ from each edge. This can really help you stretch your card stock (and dollars) when papercrafting!
