CRICUT ®: WHAT WAS USED

OTHER MATERIALS NEEDED

  • 12” paper trimmer
  • 16” of ½” ribbon
  • Craft knife
  • Ivory cardstock (1)
  • Cutting mat
  • Solid cardstock (1
  • Scissors
  • Floral patterned paper (1)
  • 3D flower stickers
  • Adhesive
  • 3D sentiment tag

STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

Cut a 10” x 7” piece from ivory cardstock, score down the center and fold in half for portrait card base.
Cut four 7 ¼” x 1 ½” from ivory cardstock. Use Cuttlebug® Pirouette Embossing Border Folder to emboss allowing ½” to remain un-embossed. Using craft knife or scissors, trim around the embossed pattern on both sides. Cut two 7 ¼” x 1 ½” from solid color cardstock. Repeat step 2.
Run adhesive down the back of two ivory cardstock strips on the un-embossed edge. Attach to floral piece vertically down the center leaving about a ½” gap in between.
Run adhesive down the back of two solid color cardstock strips on the un-embossed edge. Slide up under first layer and press to secure. Repeat step 6 with two remaining ivory cardstock strips.
Attach 8” of ½” ribbon to a piece of an 8” x 1” strip of floral patterned paper. Add this strip over the center of the layered embossed strips. Fold over and adhere to the back. This should now resemble a ruffled petticoat.
Attach ruffled panel to the floral patterned piece and attach to front of card.
Add 3D sentiment tag and 3D flowers to center of card. Make a small bow with remaining ribbon and attach above tag.
Tip: The same effect can be obtained by embossing wider pieces of cardstock on one side, remove turn around (not over) and emboss other side. Just repeat making cardstock wider each time.
