Prim­rose per­fec­tion

Quick Cards Magazine - - Quick Fixes -

My Mum’s birth­day is com­ing up, and as she loves gardening I was think­ing of mak­ing her a pretty flo­ral card. Do you have any ideas for a card de­sign, please? San­dra Smythe, Wal­sall

Sue: I think this month’s cover gift would be per­fect for your mum’s card. I started by cre­at­ing a shaped card blank by plac­ing the top of a large frame die over the folded edge of a 14cm card base and cut­ting through both lay­ers. Pink polka dot pa­per was cut from a smaller frame die and at­tached to the base, then a strip of green card was em­bossed with the fern em­boss­ing folder, lay­ered onto pink card and at­tached to the cen­tre. I stamped the prim­roses onto a 9cm square of white card and more flow­ers were stamped around the edges, which I coloured with mark­ers. I lay­ered the top­per on pink and green card and se­cured to the base with foam pads. Fi­nally, “Happy Birth­day Mum” was printed onto white card and at­tached to the left side of the card front.
