Hey there! Here’s a fun fact about me: I was born on Mother’s Day! So I’ve had a few birthdays since that have landed on this special day. Being a mom myself has made the day even more special. Another fun fact about me is I love dimension, especially when it comes to my creativity. So how about we mesh those two together and I show you how to create a dimensional floral card for Mother’s Day! Here’s how to do it:
–Mirrisparkle Glitter Cardstock in Pink Sapphire
–Curious Metallic Cardstock in Poison Ivory
-Die cutting machine
To begin, I used my Silhouette Cameo machine to cut out a 3D flower design with shimmery cream cardstock. The design is found in the Silhouette online design store.
Next, take a pencil and curve the spiral a bit so it’s easier to work with. Then add a small line of Tombow adhesive and begin rolling the flower starting from the outside of the spiral.
Continue adding small amounts of glue and twisting it until you’ve come to the end. You’ll see a larger circle tab.
Add glue to that tab and then place it directly onto the bottom of the flower to create a base for it.
Hold it for a few moments for the paper to adhere, and you’re done with the first flower!
Repeat the steps with your other flower shape. I did the same type of flower, just a bit bigger. Then take a pencil again and curl the petals outward.
Once both flowers are dry, it’s time to add a little glue to the bottom of them and place them on your card where you’d like. The card base is this beautiful Pink Sapphire cardstock. The sparkle will definitely catch your eye.
After the glue has completely dried, you’re all done! I just love how the dazzling glitter coordinates with the shimmery cream flowers. You can use this card design for Mother’s Day, or just to drop a note to a friend who could use a smile.
