How to Make
Pick a 12 x 12 sheet from your Dovecraft
Blooming Lovely collection. Cut it down to 15cm x 30cm, this will be the inside of
With your Blooming Lovely sheet horizontal,
measure in at 7.5cm, 15cm and 22.5cm and score a vertical line at each
measurement. The centre fold will need
to be a mountain fold and either side will be valley folds.
Place the second largest die from the First
Edition Nesting Bloom dies to the centre of the paper.
Washi Tape to keep the die in place as it passes through the die cutting
Choose another 12x12 paper design from the
Blooming Lovely paper pack. Trim this sheet down to 15cm x 30cm. With your
sheet horizontal, measure in 15cm from the left hand side and score a vertical
line to form a traditional card blank.
Place your die cut sheet on top of the card
blank you created. Adhere the left hand and right panel to the card blank with
Dovecraft Perma Fix, leaving the aperture free and unstuck.
Make sure the aperture still folds outward into
a mountain fold as you shut the card.
Stamp the ‘Spring has Sprung’ sentiment in red
ink and four flower stamps around the edges of the sentiment in purple ink,
within the aperture, in the centre.
Embellish the inside of your card with the
Blooming Lovely Stickers.
Die cut each of the First Edition Nesting Blooms
dies on to a complementing Blooming Lovely 12x12 paper design. Roll the petals
on each die cut, around a pencil to add
Layer each die cut together from largest to smallest
with Dovecraft Perma Fix Tape.
Fix a pearl to the centre of the smallest flower
and adhere your finished flower to the front of your card blank, in the centre.
Take the Blooming Lovely Butterfly die and die
cut it twice, on to a coordinating Blooming lovely paper design. Stick these
down on your card blank, on the top left and right hand corner, gluing only the
middle of each butterfly so the wings can be bent for dimension.
Adhere Blooming Lovely adhesive pearls to the
body of each butterfly die cut.
Finish by adding a Blooming Lovely ‘With Love’
sticker to the top right corner of the card.
The new First Edition Nesting Bloom dies
are definitely going to be a favourite of ours this spring and paired with the
Blooming Lovely papers? Absolute perfection!
