Hi friends Ivy here from ivypinkmade. Do you find that you have a massive collection of something but still keep buying more of it? Mine is teeny tiny flower die cuts! I finally decided to put a set I’ve had to use and challenge myself to make a subtle Americana card just in time for the 4th. Perfect card for a host or friend to say hello. Let's get started!
- Cardstock Warehouse Cardstock Papers
- Silver Mirrisparkle
- Pure White
- Silver Stardream
- Nightshift Blue
- Red Hot
- Red Hot Envelope
- Paper trimmer
- Sizzix Big Shot
- Flower Die of your choice
- Beacon Zip Dry Adhesive
- Star Rhinestones
- Foam adhesive
- Red twine
To start, I cut the Pure White base cardstock into an A2 card. For more info on how to cut standard card bases, visit our Paper 101 Card Cutting guide.
Next is the fun part, die cutting all the little flowers and leaves.
I cut about 5 pieces of all the shapes I wanted to use. If you are making multiple of the same cards this is a fun card to mix and match all the different shapes if you don’t want them all to be exactly the same.
I started on the center of the card and positioned my flowers how I wanted them before adhering them down. To give the card a pattern effect I hung some of the flowers off the edge and used scissors to trim the overhang pieces.
Position the leaves and flowers on the left side.
Then finish your flowers by adding the third column on the right side. After the right side is finished, I used foam tape to pop up the flower center pieces.
I just mixed and matched the colors and patterns and made sure 2 of the same color is not too close to each other.
To finish off the card, tie twine on the edge of the card and use star rhinestones to give it more of that Americana touch.
And now you're done! Look how cute this turned out! I paired it with a Red Hot envelope.
Thank you for stopping by today! I hope you enjoyed this easy card project.
