Birthday Week projects – lovely lilac card

Crafter's Companion – 18/10/19

It’s time for the second installment of our Birthday Week projects! These have been designed to help you get the most out of your free gifts and provide a little bit of inspiration.

For day two, we’re showing off the Garden Party Die set, which you’re able to get your hands on today (October 18th) if you spend over £10 on the site. This set contains five different dies to help you add adorable imagery to your papercraft projects, like flowers and birds.

Take a look through this post to see how to create a card like the one below, plus an extra suggestion of how to use another die from the set at the end!

You will need:

Step 1

Die cut two foliage sprigs from green cardstock. Die cut two flowers in lilac and purple cardstock.

Step 2

Remove the centre of the lilac die cut flower and adhere it into the centre of the purple flower to create contrast.

Step 3

Use adhesive foam to attach the purple flower and leaves to a 3″ x 3″ piece of white cardstock. Then mat and layer this on to a 3.5″ x 3.5″ piece of lilac cardstock.

Step 4

Using more adhesive foam, mat and layer this panel on to a piece of your favourite floral patterned paper, then mat and layer on to more lilac and purple cardstock to complete the full panel.

Step 5

Attach the panel to the front of your card black, then add adhesive gems.

The Garden Party Die set contains a range of different dies, including this fun birthday cake, which can be paired up with a range of coloured card for a punchy rainbow look. How cute does this card look? We love the rainbow-striped ribbon!
