Card making Die cutting Papercraft Techniques

This make from Joanna packs a wonderful sense of dimension, a deliberately subtle use of embellishments and a main flower-piece that really takes your breath away. All before you even reach the sentiment, a wonderful reminder of something we should all be doing more of: slowing down. File this under ‘LOVE’.

You will need:
Craft essentials
Patterned papers, UHK Gallery Desert Rose 12” x 12”
Dies: circle, clock
Ink pad, Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Walnut Stain
Paint, white acrylic

1 Trim patterned paper to 13cm square. Pierce holes along the edge every 0.5cm and sew through with thread. Matt onto a 14cm square of patterned paper. Trim a strip of floral paper to 3.5cm x 14cm and attach to the left-hand side of the front panel.

2 Apply distress ink in walnut stain to the border of each section and fold the edges slightly to achieve a weathered effect. Die cut an 11cm circle in diameter, then fix a chipboard doily on top with 3D foam pads. Die cut a clock and glue to the chipboard. Secure to the card front.

4 Die cut leaves and attach them to the left-hand side of the clock with 3D foam pads. Make a wreath from twine and adhere to the leaves. Fix a flower embellishment in the middle. Create a bow with twine and attach to the bottom-right of the flower embellishment.

5 Secure a sentiment to the card front with 3D foam pads and apply white paint to certain areas with a sponge. Matt onto a 14cm square top-folding white blank to finish.
