How to make a Petal Card Tutorial

Supplies needed:
Dies- (Spellbinders) Beaded Circle and Classic Circle
Cuttlebug or other die cutting machine
paper trimmer
 Card stock - Recollections, Bazzill, Colormates
Designer papers- Recollections, DCWV, Imagine That! digital papers
ATG runner, and Glue Dots
Score board and bone folder

Other supplies used
Rick rack, ribbon, ribbon lace trim- Really Reasonable Ribbon
Border Punches- Martha Stewart
white card stock for borders
Copics or other coloring medium
Sentiments- I wrote an Easter verse
Spellbinders Lacy Oval die
Corner punch- Fiskars

Gather up your supplies and set up your work station.  I will be using Spellbinders Beaded Circle and Classic Circle dies. 

Cut your card stock at 4 1/2" x 4 1/2".   I layered 2 together and placed them on my c plate of my Cuttlebug. Then placed the largest Beaded Circle die on it and taped it down so it would not move. 

Note: If you rub your die with wax paper before placing it on your card stock the pieces will come out easier.  If you don't have wax paper,  once you remove your die cut use a large paper clip opened up to stick into the tiny holes and the pieces pop right out. 

Run through your Cuttlebug 2- 3 times.

Remove your die cuts. You need 4 for each card.

Cut your designer paper at 3" x 3".  You will need enough for 4 circles.  I used 2 prints on most of my cards that correlate with each other.  Using the 3rd largest die or 2 3/4" - 3" die,  cut out your circles. 

Here are some of the circles cut out. 

Place your Beaded Circle die cut on the Score board.  Score in half.  Watch that you score all 4 die cuts in the same place. 

Fold in half and using the bone folder, crease the fold.  Do this to all 4 Beaded Circles.

Cut the circles in half.

This is what you should have. 

Using your Adhesive Runner,  attach the half circles on one side of the outside of the Beaded Circles.

This is how it should look.  As you can see I got out another print to use with the glitter paper. 

Using your Score board as a guide, place one of the Beaded Circles right against the side.  Make sure the part with the designer paper is facing up, not against the board.

Add Glue Dots to the back side of the Beaded Circles on the first 4 beads as the photo shows and about 1" over on the circle part. 

Place the next Beaded Circle right against the top side and into the corner forming a right angle. 

Make sure the Glue Dots are secured before moving.

Do the same with the next 2 Beaded Circles turning to put the part you are adding at the top each time as the next two photos show.

Remove the card.  As you can see,  the last Beaded Circle half is all inside. You need to lift the unglued end up and tuck it underneath as the next two photos show.

Add Glue Dots to the back to adhere the beads that are not glued down. This is what you should have. 

Note: Some of the beads will not be glued down on the inside. This is okay as you will be adding either a sentiment or decoration here.

Now you are ready to decorate the inside.  Add half circles of your designer paper to the four flaps.

This is how it should look if you use 2 designs.

Here are some I made ready to be finished.

Now add a sentiment or decoration inside.  I wrote an Easter verse for mine. 

Choose and color your digis. I am using Robyn's Fetish digis "Chickie,"  "Easter Egg,"  "Inga the Bunny," "Babette The Bunny," and "Just Ducky."  I colored them with Copics.  Most are fussy cut out by hand.  I used a Spellbinders die  called Lacy Ovals to cut out one of the "Just Ducky" digis."  For "Babette the Bunny" I used a Fiskars Corner punch.   You can find the digis in the Robyn's Fetish Store here

Now you need to make a belly ban for the card. Cut your card stock at 1 1/2" x 9 1/2".  Score at 2 1/2".

Fold around the card putting the scored side against the card on one side.  Do not fold it really tight. You want it loose so you can slide it off easily.  Adhere with strong adhesive.  Remove from your card.

Decorate the belly ban. Then add your digi to the front. I covered the seam of the ban with the digi to hide it. 

Here are my finished cards.

Thanks for dropping by.   I so enjoyed our Easter project together. I hope you will give this a try.  Let me know if you do.  I would love to drop by and see your creation.
