Bursting with Blooms -
Designer: Jo Firth-Young
In this gorgeous masterboard card Jo has used up the scraps from the cards shown in the magazine so nothing is wasted! You can see how to create the masterboard in the July 2010 issue of Craft Stamper.
Bloom Where You Are Planted
- Masterboard created as shown in the magazine
- Imagine That stamps: Bloomin’ Lovely
- Bazzill cardstock: green
- Stickles glitter glue: Frosted Lace
- Stampin’ Up punch: Round Tab
- Nestabilities dies
- Sizzix die: Flourish #2
- Paper flowers
- Self-adhesive gems
This card is created from the waste pieces of the card kraft-coloured card shown in the magazine. Square up around the apertures – the green waste will be bigger than the masterboard waste and so will sit onto it – glue together. Punch a tab (Stampin’ Up!) and stamp with a greeting (Imagine That) and attach to the top left corner. Attach the frames and the greeting to the card at an angle. Die cut the flourishes from green Bazzill cardstock – cut once with the texture up and once with the texture down on the die – this will give more options for the placement. Cut the flourish piece apart to allow for more options on how they are arranged. Outline the flourish with a black line to tie in with the lines on the masterboard design and the images. Repeat around the green aperture. Cut a flower out of the masterboard (or colour up a spare one). Arrange this and other paper flowers onto the card. Attach with glue dots.
