To make a flower card – you need some petal/flower shapes, stems, flower pot shape and a blank card. If you don’t have pre cut shapes you can use small cup cake cases or cut out petal shapes from paper/magazines. If you spray your flower shapes with some perfume before using them you will have a perfumed card!
Glue on the flowers and stems. Then glue on the flower pot to cover the end of the stems. You can add detail to the flowers with pencils/felt tips if you wish.
Sometimes I manage to find something when I need it! Today I managed to locate a bag of petals and flower pots that were left over from a summer themed craft last year. They are now going to be used to make mother’s day cards. One of the helpers at toddler group is a committed car boot enthusiast and found some great card making shapes just last week and some green tinsel. The latter is going to be cut up (it’ll be messy!!). These will also be used in the card making 🙂 Before toddler group I’ll spray the flower shapes with perfume. This makes for a lovely scratch n sniff card.
This year I have bought blank cards with envelopes from hobbycraft – they are pre-folded and colourful and I just fancied having an envelope too. A chance meeting with a friend, who was also in hobbycraft, and she agreed that paying extra for the envelopes was worth it!
