Glittered Flowers Card
These sparkly flowers are easy to make and look so pretty, with the blue sky providing a striking background. You can easily change the message to make this card suitable for lots of other occasions...
- Clear Film (10 Sheets)
- Glitter Glue
- Black Stazon Ink Pad
- Blue Sky card
- Black Card (we used A4 Coloured Card, Charcoal Black (10 sheets))
- Double sided tape
- Mini-mounting pads
- Hi-Tack Fast Tack Glue
- An A6 white card blank
1. The first step is to stamp and glitter the flowers, as these take a while to dry...
Stamp the flower images onto a sheet of clear film and allow to dry. Turn over the sheet and use glitter glue to colour in the flower images on the reverse side of the film. Mixing silver or gold in with a colour can give a really good effect... it is worth experimenting first! Leave this to dry thoroughly (this takes varying times, depending upon the amount of glitter glue used). We are going to turn these squares over, so it is worth checking to see what they look like from the other side, before you leave them to dry.
2. The next step is to make the topper...
Cut out a rectangle of black card, measuring about 12x5cm (4 3/4 x 2"). Cut out a rectangle of the 'blue sky' card, measuring about 11.5x4.5cm (4 1/2 x 1 3/4") and stick this centrally onto the rectangle of black card, using double sided tape. Cut out the glittered flower squares. Glue them onto the blue sky card, with the glitter glue side facing down, using a clear drying strong glue on the glittered parts, so it doesn't show (we used Hi-Tack Fast Tack Glue) and leave to dry.
3. The last step is to put everything together...
Print 'Happy Birthday' onto a card blank, or alternatively, you could stamp a message or use a sticker. Stick the topper onto the card blank with mini mounting pads, making sure you have enough to support the topper evenly.
Your card is finished!
