Keep reading for the instructions of how to create Sarah's pretty flower card as seen in docrafts TV.
Take an 8 x 8" cardblank and with the fold at the top cut the width down to 6 inches. Open up the card and score across the centre front. Fold inwards to form an easel card.
Cut 3 pieces of kraft card slightly smaller than the front, back and base of the card. Cut 3 papers slightly smaller than the kraft card, ink the edges and matt onto the kraft card. Glue the front and back pieces onto the card blank.
Cut a strip of kraftcard to fit along the base panel and punch a border along one edge. Glue a length of lace and a length of ribbon above the border, folding and gluing the edges on the back. Glue to the centre of the base panel and glue to the base of the card.
Die-cut a circle out of kraft card and glue to the back of a round lace paper to strengthen it. Add glue to the bottom third of the lace paper at the back and glue onto the front of the card so two thirds of the lace paper is standing above the front.
Die-cut half a parenthesis frame in a floral paper, matt onto kraft card and cut out leaving a small border. Ink the edges and add a strip of adhesive lace around the top. Bend slightly and glue to the front of the card to form a vase. Add a bow to the top left.
Die-cut a selection of large and small flowers and leaves in floral papers. Ink the edges and shape on a foam stamp pad using an embossing tool. Cut three pieces of wooden skewer stick about 3 inches long and glue the flowers to the top and add leaves to the centres, forming 1 large and 2 smaller flowers. Arrange the flowers in the vase, glue in place and add buttons to the centres.
Stamp a sentiment in brown ink and cut out in a rectangle. Ink the edges and matt onto kraft card leaving a small border along the edges and about half an inch on the ends. Shape slightly and glue in the centre of the base of the card. Finish off with resin flowers either side of the sentiment.
