Flower Petal Card + Tutorial

Wednesday, October 21, 2009

Hello! It's Paper Maniac Wednesday! This week the DT girls are making cards with black, white and a pop of color. I was inspired to make this card after seeing the patterned paper I used on Monday's card. The petals are just squares with two rounded corners. Easy peasy, right? Well it will be for you since I took care of the measuring for you! I will apologize up front for the length of this tutorial. I hope I didn't over-complicate such an easy card!!!

Here are the sizes of paper and card stock you will need:
(the colors I used are in parenthesis)
1 - 5" x 10" piece of card stock, folded in half for your base (white)
1 - 4.75" (black) square
4 - 2.25" (white) squares
4 - 2" (patterned paper) squares
4 - 1.25" (white) squares

- This is the 5" square card you will be using as your card's base.
- Adhere the 4.75" square panel to the card base.
- Off to the side, arrange the four 2.25" squares like shown.- Using a corner rounder punch, punch the corners shown.
- Now, take your four 2" patterned paper squares and punch the same corners as before. Layer on top of the 2.25" squares. You do not need to adhere these just yet, we're just laying it out first.
- Take the four 1.25" squares and punch the same corners. Layer these on top of the patterned paper. Place these toward the center of your flower.- Now we can start putting the flower together. I used snail adhesive between the patterned paper and the largest petal. - Then I used foam dimensionals to pop up the smallest of the petals.
- Now you should have four complete petals.
- Turn them over and add foam dimensionals.

- Now you can start adhering them to your card. The one thing to remember here is to arrange your petals first by gently laying them on the card stock. You should be able to move them around. When you get the petals the way you like, then press down on each petal to secure them. Your card should now look like this.

- You can decorate the center of your flower any way you like. I used two circles of paper and a button I painted using this tutorial. I used foam dimensionals to adhere to the center of my card.
- Here's what the finished card looks like.

- And here is a close-up shot showing all the dimension.
Now head on over to the Paper Maniac Blog and check out what the rest of the DT made using black, white, and a pop of color. Thanks for stopping by today!
