All of the items that Suzi has used come from the latest craft box, with the addition of Collall Tacky Glue and two large Druzy stones.

Here’s how to make this beautiful easel card, proudly displaying these stunning flowers, and suitable for a number of occasions!

Feeling inspired? Grab this month’s craft box!

Step 1

Take 2 A6 cards from the box and score one halfway to the centre. Cut the other card in half and adhere to the folded section. This will give you an easel card.

Step 2

Choose your patterned and matting paper, distress these and add to your card front and bottom.

Step 3

Stamp 5 roses onto the pink 8×8 cardstock in your box and die cut. Stamp 2 sets of leaves onto the dark green cardstock in your box and die cut out.

Step 4

Colour your flower petals with a deeper shade of pink adding a little yellow to the centre. If you want you could add a little dark green to the outer edges of your leaf petals but it’s not essential as the green cardstock is so vibrant.

Step 5

With a ball tool, shape your flowers and leaves. If you wanted a smaller flower for the bottom of your card cut 3 petals off from 2 of the flowers and glue together, overlapping each other to make a smaller Rose. Add the petals as required. Assemble your other flower and if required cut your leaves to suit your card.

Step 6

Add your flowers, leaves and sentiment to your card.
