Birthday Wishes - Blooming Frames Card Tutorial

Birthday Wishes - Blooming Frames Card Tutorial

Hello Crafters,
Today, we're bringing you this delightful card from Rebecca, using the brand-new Blooming Frames collection. Rebecca has kept the colour pallet to soft, pretty pinks, and the design would lend itself to many occasions aside from birthdays, as in the example here. It would also look great as the basis for a complete wedding stationery suite. 
There are lots of techniques included in the below project, so if you're looking for something with many different elements, then this card is definitely one for you to try! 
Read on for a full step-by-step project tutorial.

YOU WILL NEED:

 

 

INSTRUCTIONS:

Take a sheet of plain paper from the Floral Dreams paper pad and trim to 7½” square. Go around the edges using a chisel-tip glue pen and cover in Crystal Crush Sparkelicious glitter. Affix to the card base using foam pads.

2 Trim Coral pearl cardstock to 7¼” square and edge in Crystal Crush Sparkelicious glitter. Affix to the card using Dries-clear PVA glue. Trim pattered paper to 7” square and, again, edge in Crystal Crush glitter. Affix to the card using foam pads. Cut another piece of plain paper from the paper pad to 6” square and edge as before with Crystal Crush Sparkelicious glitter.

3 Die-cut the largest die from Coral pearl card. Affix to the card using foam pads. Cut the lace panel from Crystal White pearl card, attach an adhesive sheet behind and trim to size. Peel off the backing, attach to the centre of the frame on the card, and cover in Sugared Peach Sparkelicious glitter.

4 Stamp out two large and four medium Christmas Magnolias onto vellum using a Wow! clear embossing inkpad and heat-emboss with Opaque Bright White Wow! embossing powder. Die-cut using the coordinating dies.

5 To make up the flowers, curl each of the petals and add small dots of PVA glue to the centres then cover in Sugared Peach Sparkelicious glitter. Layer two large die-cut shapes together to create the large flower and then two sets of two medium shapes to create two medium flowers, using 3D glue gel to adhere together.

6 Stamp out a large magnolia onto heat-resistant acetate and heat-emboss using Opaque Bright White Wow! embossing powder. Fussy cut then add dots of Dries-Clear PVA glue to the centre and cover in Sugared Peach Sparkelicious glitter. Add to the centre of the large flower using 3D glue gel.

7 Die-cut one large and two medium stamens from a pain paper from the Floral Dreams paper pad. Add dots of Dries-Clear PVA glue to the edges and cover in Crystal Pink Sparkelicious glitter. Die-cut one large and two medium stamens from Coral pearl card, add glue to the edges, then cover in Sugared Peach Sparkelicious glitter. Add one of each colour stamen to the centre of each flower and add a crystal to the centre. Affix to the corner of the card using 3D glue gel.

8 Stamp out four swirls from the Dazzling Foliage stamp and die set using Wow! clear embossing ink and heat-emboss using Diamond White Wow! embossing powder. Trim around and tuck behind the flowers using 3D glue gel.

9 Stamp out a sentiment and heat-emboss using Metallic Silver Sparkle Wow! embossing powder. Trim to create a tag shape and affix to the card using 3D glue gel. Tie a triple bow and add to the top of the tag. Finish by adding a few floral sequins into the background and one to the centre of the bow, then add a small self-adhesive crystal to the centre of each flower.
