Large Flower Card – 3 ways!

Hi Guys!

I’m sharing another of my Team KnK projects here today and popping the files into my archives, if you’ve not seen it before…enjoy! :)

Today I will use one Cut File (supplied at the end of the post) to create 3 different card looks armed with just my cutting machine and a few basic supplies.


Card 1: This is a super quick yet effective card to whip up when you need a card asap.

I lined up one of the oval shapes onto the card base, I chose one of the fonts to form the word ‘Hello’ then cut both pieces from some kraft card:


I folded my card in half then placed the ‘Hello’ inside the oval window and glued it to the inside of the card:


Card 2: I used white vellum for my large solid (sandwich) piece to add some softness to this card but coloured vellum or acetate could be used for different looks.

From yellow card I cut the card base, the extra flower outline piece, the label outline shape and the word ‘Mum’. From vellum I cut the large solid layer and the larger label shape:


I glued my vellum to the back of the front outline pieces:


These pieces can now be flipped over and glued to the card base sandwiching the vellum between the layers, this ensures that the inside of your card is as neat as the outside:


As I didn’t create a window in the card base this time I can add my sentiment to my label shape without it looking messy on the inside of the card:


Card 3: Inside the cut file you will find smaller solid (sandwich) pieces which allow you to use different colours for your flower and leaf pieces.

From black card I cut the card base, the extra flower outline piece and the banner outline shape. From pink card I cut the solid flower piece and the larger banner shape. From green card I cut the solid leaf pieces:


I glued my coloured pieces to the back of the front outines then added a sentiment to my banner:


I flipped my flower piece over and glued it to the card base and sandwiched it between the black card layers to keep my card neat inside and out. I added my banner to the card with 3D foam tape:


The middle of my flower was calling out for a button, as I’m not using vellum here it won’t show through:


Negative Pieces: Do you usually throw your negative pieces away? How about saving them to make some tags? Here is the tag cut file I used:

    What wonderful ideas to do with this file, I doubt if I would have thought to use vellum. Thank you, Bird.

    Oh wow!
    Thank you VERY MUCH.
    I was just thinking yesterday, that MAYBE I should buy an embossing “machine”. (I really don’t know much about them, but it looks like they’re not TOO complicated.) But then I realised that I would have to start buying all those plates, and I really just like the more plain textures (i.e., raised dots) Maybe I will buy one. Or ask for one for a present. My kids never know what to buy me for my B-day etc.

    Thank you for sharing your cut files and all the ideas to make them look so different. I especially love your idea for using the positive pieces on a tag.

    Wonderful Flower Card. Thanks for sharing the file. I put my own twist on it and cut some pieces duplicate and fussy cut the leaves paper peicing them on top so that leaves would be green on top. I used yellow vellum over yellow cardstock under the cutout area for flower petals. I used green cardstock & green vellum for leaves. I’ll post to my blog soon.
