How to Make a Floral Border Card


A couple of months ago I launched my Signature Collection with two fabulous ranges – Festive Wonder and Butterfly Lullaby. I’m now really excited to be bringing you my new range – Floral Delight. There’s a real classical, timeless feel to this range… but could be made really modern too, so you could use the designs in a variety of ways to suit different styles.

How to Make

  1. Die-cut ‘Scalloped Border’ from pink Core’dinations cardstock. Matt this to the left side of a 5.7×5.7″ sheet of white cardstock and then emboss using the Floral Swirls embossing folder.
  2. Using the Sand-it Set, sand the Core’dinations side of the panel to reveal the core colour. Matt the panel onto pink Core’dinations cardstock and trim to leave a narrow border.
  3. Take your white pearlescent 6×6″ card blank (or make your own) and, with the card in a tent-fold orientation, mount the embossed panel to the centre.
  4. Die-cut ‘Trailing Flowers’ from a darker pink Core’dinations cardstock and fix towards the top-centre of the card. Make sure the bottom of the die-cut shape sits over an embossed flower head as this will be covered in the next step.
  5. Die-cut ‘In Bloom’ from pink Core’dinations cardstock. You will need eight small flowers, two medium and two large in total. Sand back all flowers, shape with your fingers and then fix onto the card, over the flower-heads in the embossed panel. Overlap the two large and the two medium-sized flowers, as shown.
  6. Stick a self-adhesive pearl to the centre of each die-cut flower.
  7. Stamp out your ‘happy birthday’ sentiment with black ink onto white cardstock. Trim to size, ink the edges with Tattered Rose and then matt onto more white cardstock. Trim again to leave a narrow border and then ink the edges once more with Tattered Rose. Adhere to the top-right corner of the card using 3D glue gel.
