Step by step

  1. Ink a background onto white cardstock using the inks and a blending tool.
  2. Stamp the flowers using a black ink randomly onto the inked cardstock, then mount onto the card front.
  3. Cut out the banner and semi-circle sentiments and layer onto the card front using 3D foam pads.
  4. Stamp and die-cut one of the flowers and place an enamel dot in the centre. Matt onto the card front using 3D foam pads.
  5. Using black and white cardstock, die-cut the leaves and colour the white leaves with green ink.
  6. Affix together to create a drop shadow effect, with the black behind the green and attach onto the card front, to finish.

Fantastic stripes by Elizabeth Hogarth

You’ll need
kit paper pack & enamel dots
white 13×18.5cm card blank
blue cardstock
scalloped & plain circles Lisa Horton Crafts Nested dies
3D foam pads

Step by step

  1. Cut two pieces of blue cardstock, one to 17.5×12.5cm and the other to 17x12cm and cut the strips of patterned paper to 2cm wide.
  2. Take the smaller blue rectangle and begin laying out the strips into a pattern. When you are happy with the design begin adhering the strips. Cut the strips away from the cardstock, allowing for a slight overhang and use the excess to fill the remaining gaps in the design.  When the entire cardstock is covered, neatly cut down the rectangle. Layer this patterned matt onto the larger rectangle and adjust the position to create a narrow border. Attach onto the card front using 3D foam pads.
  3. Cut out 7cm scalloped circle from blue cardstock. Take two semi circles from the paper pack and affix them onto the scalloped circle, leaving a narrow border. Place a paper bow on the lower semi-circle and finish with one small pearl dot.
  4. Cut one final strip from blue cardstock to create a ribbon banner. Adhere the scalloped circle to the left of this banner using 3D foam pads. Lastly, cut down the sentiment topper and place this to the right-hand side of the banner.

Top tip: This is a great way to use up all of your spare scraps of patterned paper!
