What you Need

Dovecraft Painted Blooms 8x8 Paper Pad, Mini Bows, Clear Stamp, Pink Pearl Effects, 6x6 Card Blank

First Edition Scalloped Circle Dies

Simply Creative Chipboard Alphabet and Number Stickers


How to Make

1.  Use the largest die from your First Edition Scalloped Circle die set to cut into a Dovecraft 6x6 card blank. When die cutting, make sure the die is overlapping the card crease at the top so that you are left with a card that still folds.

2.  Fold the top flap of your card design in half to create the easel.

3.  Die cut two large scallop circles on two complementing sheets of Dovecraft Painted Blooms papers. Adhere one of your scallop circle die cuts to the front flap, ensuring to only stick the die cut paper to the lower half of your card.

4.  Place the second scalloped circle die cut on to the inside of the card – this will form your base. You will need to trim the edge where it meets the card fold.

5.  Use the second and third largest die in your Scalloped Circles die set on to coordinating Painted Bloom Sheets. Layer and glue your die cuts on to the card front.

6.  Use the pink, Simply Creative Alphabet stickers to write the word ‘Mum’ on the base of your card. This will also act as a stopper. Glue a Painted Blooms bow underneath your sentiment.

7.  Die cut a circle on to leftover white card using the second smallest scalloped circle die from your set. Use the Painted Blooms ‘Especially for you’ clear stamp in the centre. Once dry, create a border of small dots using pink Dovecraft 3D Pearl Effects.
