Layer it up and pop it out!!!

                                    Papers from Dreams come true papercraft factory.

Good morning everyone!!
Well I hope you all took advantage of the awesome sale over on the shop?!! if you haven't, here's a little reminder for you.....

and onto my share for today!! its a zingy little number!! lovely cheery colours for the 1st September!! 
And if you fancy making your own here's the details on how to do it!!

You will need:
Green and pink dotted paper.
Large flowers paper.
plain cardstock cut at 4" x 8"
Score and fold your plain cardstock cut at 4" x 8" at 4". This will be your cardbase.

Cut your green and pink dotted paper. You will need 1 at 3 7/8", one at 3 2/8", one at 2 6/8".

Cut your large flowered paper, You will need one at 3 4/8", one at 3" and one at 2 4/8".
Adhere them to your card base, starting with the biggest going down to the smallest, gluing each layer on top of each other.

You will see lots of flowers on your top layer. Go to your scraps of the large flowered paper and cut out all the flowers you can see on your top layer, snipping down the lines up to the centre of your flower so that you split the petals. Turn them over and emboss them (if you don't have an embossing mat you can do this on a folded tea towel with the rounded end of a pen.
Once they are nice and curly stick them over the co-ordinating flowers on your top layer of paper on your cardbase.

And if you do make one, please share it with us, we love to see what you all do with your Funky hand papers. We have a Facebook page here or link in to our little linky tool below!

  2. Wow! This card is so bright, like a cold drink of orange juice in the morning! Thank you so much for the embossing technique it looks fantastic. Layering is such a simple way to make a card 'pop' and I forget it when I'm card making, thanks for the reminder.
