This is a great all purpose card that can be printed out, assembled quickly, and personalized acco
rding to the occasion. The best part…it’s free!
Download and print on a good quality, white, card stock that is made specifically for printers. Doing this makes a big difference in the appearance of your work. I used Red River Paper card stock for this project.
The card can be made one of two ways depending on your preference. It can be cut using the white card stock as the base or trimmed and placed on colored card stock. If you would like a white base, trim the printed part of the card and include the white card stock. The cutting dimensions are 5.5 X 8.5.
Fold the card in half making sure to have that 1/8th inch white border at the top of the fold.
If you like this look jump down to the flower making part. If you want a colored background, trim the image right along the red edge.
Cut a base of card stock 5.5 X 8.5 and fold in half.
Adhere the printed part onto the base. I used a neutral, tan color, but I think this would look great with any of the colors in the print.
Cut out the flowers and buttons. I left a little white outline around the flowers and trimmed in between the petals. A half inch punch was used for the buttons but they can also but cut by hand. The edges were inked a little with some brown ink.
To add a little dimension, a stylus and foam base was used on the flowers. On the wrong side of the flower, work the stylus in circles around each of the petals. This bumps them up so they stand out from the card.
Use dimensionals on the both the back of the button and the flower.
Place the button on top of the flower and the flower on the card. Stagger the petals so they alternate with the ones on the base.
The card can be customized for almost any occasion but I needed some thank you cards so I punched out a shape and added a sentiment.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
If you make one of these cards, make sure to post them at THE DIGICHICK GALLERY. We would love to see what you make!
Have a great day!
