Card Connection : Birthday


Happy Birthday | Leeann Pearce

Hello everyone! I have a fabulous birthday card for you all. If you are anything like me you like a bit of texture and dimension on your projects. This is where my punches come in and a little folding technique. I love how something so simple can pack a punch. So now it times to show you how I made that fabulous paper flower on the front of this birthday card

Start off by making your base. Cut a piece of Good Afternoon patterned paper to measure 15cm x 15cm Trim Jasmine Tea pattern paper to measure 14.5cm x 14.5cm – adhere to base of card. Trim Friendly Greeting to measure 12cm x 12cm, mat to remaining Jasmine Tea paper. Adhere to card. Machine stitch a border for extra detail. Arrange and adhere paper doily.

Now just follow these simple steps to create your flower :

Use 2”circle punch and punch out 6 circles from the pagoda pattern paper.

Fold each punch circle in half and score. Unfold and use the scored centre as a guide. Fold the sides in leaving you with a cone shape.

Arrange cones on matt doily and then adhere. Stack 2 buttons and hand stitch in place.

Slide you finger into each of the cones and lift gently.

Make a pennant from scraps of paper and place alpha stickers on. Add extra detail by machine stitching a line. Adhere your pennant using some 3D foam. Finish your card off by adding a couple of pins.

Don’t forget you can use any size circle punch you have on hand to create a variety of looks.
