Split front flower card

I am crafting with the Papercraft Society Box 27 this week designed by The Frugal Crafter.  I must admit that I have struggled to find my mojo with this box as it isn’t really my style but I’ve persevered and I am loving the cards I have made.  I shared the box frame card I made using the button dies from the kit and today I have used the floral stamp as the focal feature of this split front card.

The style of this card was inspired by a card design I saw on the Brother scan n cut project library by Tattered Lace.  I have changed the measurements to fit the size of my image and used acetate to join the front pieces of the card.

I wanted to keep the background decoration clean and simple so that the flower really stands out.  I embossed the panels using a lattice embossing folder from Made to Surprise .  The happy birthday sentiment was drawn and cut out on my Brother Scan n Cut and I stacked up 3 layers to give it some dimension.  The floral image was stamped onto watercolour card stock and coloured using Altenew markers.  There is plenty of space on the back of the card to write a message and I stamped the sentiment from the kit using Memento black ink.

Measurements for making this card

  • Cardbase 8 7/8 ” x 4 3/4″ along the long side score at 2 1/8″
  • Bottom card front 4 1/4″ x 4 3/4″ along the 4 1/4″ side score at 2 1/8″
  •  2 x embossed mats for the front of the card 1/3/4 ” x 4 1/2 “

  • mat for back of the card in white 6 1/4 ” x 4 1/4 “

This style card is very easy to adapt to fit any image and makes a lovely card which can be used for any occassion.
