What will you need?

  • TOP002 Spring Flowers Card Toppers
  • ​XL500 Silver Border peel off stickers
  • ​XL306 Silver Mothers Day peel off stickers
  • ​XL460 Silver Flower Border peel off stickers
  • ​A4 sheet of Indigo card
  • ​A4 sheet of pearlescent white and pearlescent lilac card
  • ​Double-sided foam pads, glue or double-sided tape, ruler, craft knife & scissors, etc

  • Cut the A4 indigo card to measure 10cm x 29cm
  • Measure 7cm in from each of the short sides, score across and fold in, making a gatefold card​

  • ​Open out the card, turn it over and measure 3.5cm in from each side, score across and fold

  • From the pearlescent lilac card, cut out two strips measuring 2.5cm x 10cm and one piece measuring 7cm x 10cm
  • Cut out the three grape hyacinth toppers
  • ​Mount each one onto white pearlescent card with a very small border

  • Stick the lilac pearlescent card strips onto the sides of the card blank, leaving a thin 3mm border of the indigo card down the outside edge
  • ​Add a silver peel off border (XL500) down each side of the lilac strips.

The XL500 peel off sheet has various widths of borders, I've used the thinnest on the outside edges and wider ones elsewhere.

  • Stick the larger piece of lilac pearlescent card into the centre of the card blank
  • ​Add a silver border down each side


  • Stick the centre topper in place, approx. 5mm from the top edge of the card blank, using 1mm double-sided foam pads
  • ​Then attach a Mother's Day peel off sticker (XL306) under the topper

  • Attach foam pads to the left side of one topper and the right side of the other topper. Then topper is going to overlap the edge so you don't need pads all-over the back
  • ​Leave the same amount of border at the top of the card blank as you did for the central topper, then stick the toppers down


  • Cut a small piece of flower border peel off sticker and stick it to the lilac card under each of the side toppers
  • Do the same for the inside of the card blank, sticking the flower border at the bottom on both sides of the central piece
Your card is now finished.
