What You Will Need

Dovecraft Bloom and Grow 6x6 paper pack

Dovecraft 6x6 scalloped card blanks

First Edition Tag, nesting stamp and doilies die sets

Dovecraft 99p with love stamp

How to Make

1.  Trim a piece of floral pink paper to 14.5 x 14.5cm, distress and edge using your craft knife. Crumple the paper into a ball before smoothing out and sticking to your card blank.

2.  Die-cut a piece of blue paper floral paper using the nesting stamp die, stick down on a slight angle.

3.  Using the rose print paper die cut 4 corner doilies, and glue down so they create an open circle.

Top Tip: when using intricate dies use ordinary waxed paper from your kitchen between the paper and die for an easy release.

4.  Die cut a tag using the brown newspaper print paper, stamp your sentiment in the middle and fix to the centre of the card using foam squares. 

We love the textured effect you can get from just crumpling up your papers, an easy way to add a distressed finish.
