Flower template birthday card makes use of a template to cut out flower shapes. In a few minutes, you’ll have gorgeous-looking flowers to embellish your card with!
Not everyone is confident of doodling pretty flowers for their cards. Even if you can, don’t you sometimes just feel like wanting a little help in drawing perfectly-shaped flowers?
A template is the quick answer.
I love using flowers on my cards, be it floral patterned papers, doodled flowers, fabric flowers, etc. So when it’s time to invest in a template, I invested in a set of flower templates.
But they aren’t templates in the true sense. They are actually flower chipboards. But instead of using them as chipboard flowers for my cards, I turn them into flower templates that I can use over and over again on an assortment of homemade birthday cards.
Below is a quick guide to creating a card using some of my flower templates.
- White card blank
- Flower and stem templates from Craft Work
- Yellow and green cardstocks
- Blue, pink and orange floral patterned papers from DCWV Floral Paper Stack
- Black pigment-ink pen
- Scissors and craft knife
1) Using the flower templates, draw and cut out three sets of big and medium flower petals from the blue, pink and orange floral patterned papers.
Next, draw and cut out three circles from the yellow cardstock to act as the flower centers.
2) Piece the flowers together by layering the medium petals on top of the big petals. Attach a yellow flower center to each of the 3 flowers.
3) Doodle borders along the flower petals and the flower center using the black pen. Repeat for the other two flowers.
4) Using the stem template, draw and cut out three stems from the green cardstock. Doodle borders along the edge of the stems using the black pen.
5) Doodle a scalloped-border on a piece of yellow cardstock. Cut along the scalloped-border using a craft knife. This will create a scalloped-border frame.
6) Mount the yellow frame to the white cardstock.
Handwrite birthday greetings on the lower border of the yellow frame as shown using the black pen.
7) Arrange and attach the three flowers onto the center of the card blank.
Outline the scalloped-border and add borders to the yellow frame by using the black pen.
