What will you need?

  • CS004 Spring Flowers collage sheet
  • ​XL643 Gold Mum's Messages peel off stickers
  • ​CPA008 Painted Textures paper pack
  • ​A4 piece of white or cream card
  • ​Double-sided foam pads, glue, double-sided tape, ruler, craft knife & scissors, etc

  • Cut a piece of white or cream card 10cm x 24cm
  • ​Measure along the longest edge 15cm form the right-hand side and score a line down the card
  • ​Fold the left-hand side in at this point

  • ​Cut a piece of dark blue paper 10cm x 15cm
  • ​And a piece of pale blue paper 9cm x 10cm

  • Stick the dark blue piece of paper to the inside of the card blank
  • ​And the pale blue piece to the front
  • Trim off any excess if necessary

  • Select the flowers from the collage sheet and cut them out, along with the rainbow and the sun

​I've left some of the background on the flowers so they are not too flimsy, and a small amount on the ends of the rainbow to give me a bit more length.

  • Place the iris at the right-hand edge of the front of the card
  • ​Position the rainbow with the end tucked behind the iris
  • ​Stick the rainbow onto the card and remove the iris for the time being

  • Now cut off the corner of the card following the lin of the rainbow

  • Stick the iris into position by gluing the bottom of the stems and attaching foam pads to the back of the flowers

 

  • Do the same for the other flowers
  • You can vary the thickness of the foam pads to create more of a 3D effect if you wish
  • Now cut some grass spikes out of green paper (a mottled or shaded paper works best for this)
  • Stick them along the bottom edge of the card over the base of the flower stems
  • Open the card up
  • ​Stick the lily in the centre of the card so that the leaf is visible when the card is shut
  • ​Cut some more grass spikes and stick them along the bottom edge of the card
  • Stick the sun in the top right-hand corner, overlapping the edge
  • ​Trim off any excess

 

  • Now add your peel off message, there is a variety to choose from on the XL643 sheet
  • There is also some little tiny flowers on the peel off sheet. Dot one or two in the grass

Your card is now finished

and ready to give to a special Mum.
