Handmade Congratulations Greeting Card / Long - Skinny Card with Paper Flower Tutorial



long skinny card

Hello all! I made a long and skinny card. This one was very simple and easy to make. The idea of making long and skinny card came from Mojo Monday sketch. The finished size of the card is 3.5" X 8.5". I used Fresh Floral Stack pattern paper from DCWV. Both the flowers were handmade using EK Sucess medium retro flower punch. I used Die-Namics Fancy Flourish die on the background. 


Handmade flowers

Leaves were punched out using Punch-Bunch punch. I added some Pearls and Rhinestones to finish off the card. 

Handmade paper flower tutorial:

Punch out three flowers using retro flower punch (or cut freehand). Draw and/or cut the flowers as shown.

Use twezzer or simply use your fingers to crease the petals as shown above.

Invert the flowers and bring the petal towards the center.

Apply a dot of glue on the center and layer the flowers on top of each other. Use rhinestone, liquid pearl or half pearls as your flower center. 

Hope you liked it.

Thanks for dropping by. Have a great day.
