Spellbinders Flowers and Lace Card

Hello crafty friends! I had so much fun creating this card with Flower Lace Borders die set from my Timeless Heart Collection by Spellbinders. I also used Textured Flowers die set and Foamiran to make the flowers. I really enjoy making flowers with Foamiran, the flowers are really easy to shape and they look very natural and soft to the touch.





Instructions:

1. Create a 5” x 7” card base from white cardstock. Cover front of card with designer cardstock.
2. Die cut 2 lace borders with Flower Lace Borders S4-796 die set from white card stock.



3. Cut a 6 ½” x 2 ½” panel from designer cardstock. Glue flower lace borders to panel and then adhere to card front using foam squares.



4. Die cut Friends sentiment with Friends & Family Frames S5-315 die set from white cardstock. Adhere sentiment to card using foam squares.



5. Die cut multiple flowers and leaves with Textured Flowers S5-317 die set from Foamiran in peach color. Color edges of all flowers with brown and pink chalk inks. Color leaves with green chalk ink.





6.  Heat flowers with heat tool for a few seconds and then twist petals to shape. Layer petals together with hot glue gun.



7. Die cut 2 leaf vines with Layered Leaf Vines S4-795 die set from Foamiran, color with green chalk ink.



8. Embellish center of flowers with stamens or micro-beads. Adhere flowers and leaves to card as pictured below. Create a bow with silk ribbon and glue under flower.





You can also use silver foil cardstock to die cut the flower lace and sentiment.
