|How to make a beautiful greetings card Lace flowers card with stamps|
Lacé with flowers card
A dark red pearlescent card has a circular Lacé design cut in shiny pink/mauve backing paper. Origami style flowers decorate the centre of the card. The four corners are decorated with gold stickers.
Glue the shiny pink/mauve backing paper to the pearlecent pearl paper to create a sheet duo paper with different colours on each side. Cut this slightly smaller than the size of the greetings card.
Cut out the Lacé design in your duo paper using the template. Score and fold the design tucking the points under the unscored pieces.
You can use a Lacé knife to cut the design but the maker of this card used a parchment craft two needle tool. The needle is moved forward one hole at a time so the back needle locates in the previous hole.
The cut/perforate design can then be pushed out and folded back using the illustration as a guide.
Mount the duo paper pattern on the greetings card with adhesive.
Add a gold corner sticker to each corner.
The flower fold:
Make a total of five flowers.
Cut long triangular strips of green paper for the leaves.
Assemble the flower using the picture as a guide.
The flower stem is a strip of green Mizuhiki plastic wire.
Fix the flower with adhesive.
