How to Make a Layered Floral Frame Card
No matter what the time of year, receiving a beautiful floral card in the post is always sure to put a smile on the lucky recipients face. The Floral Frame set from Luxe Craft can be used for all manner of greetings, from birthdays to thank you’s, congratulations and everything in between!
- Take a 6 x 6″ white crda blank and trim down to 13.2cm square.
2.Die-cut the tiny frame from an off-cut of white card. Position this just off-centre on the card front. Mark the card front lightly with a pencil where the bottom left hand corner of the frame sits.
2. Stamp the background splash design using a watermark ink. Sprinkle with silver embossing powder, shake off the excess and set with a heat tool.
Top Tip – To work out the exact positing of the background splashes, first stamp these with any ink onto scrap paper. Cut them out and use them to position into place where needed. These can then be used as a guide.
4. Fix the frame onto the card front using 3D foam pads.
5. Use a die cutting machine to cut three roses from pale-pink coloured cardstock, then die cut both daisy flowers twice from pale yellow cardstock. Use the fern foliage die to cut three sprigs from pale green card. Finally, use the leafy foliage die three times with white cardstock, and three times from vellum/tracing paper.
6. Add some petal detail to the roses by using the rose stamp with a pale-pink ink pad. Repeat the same for the daisy flowers adding detail to smallest daisy with pale green ink. The three fern sprigs can also be stamped in the same pale green ink to add interest.
7. Gently shape some of the floral elements to add more life. Use a large ball tool and mat to shape all three roses, along with both sizes of daisy flowers and the three white leafy foliage pieces.
8. Use 3D foam pads to fix the roses into place with two on the frame itself, and one on the card front. Add the two yellow daisies after they have been built up using more foam pads. Slide under the fern sprigs and hold into place with more foam pads. Then add the white leafy sprigs just using tacky glue at the stems. Lastly do the same with the vellum sprigs to complete the design.
