How to make it:

So many pre-bought cards feature flowers because they are universally popular. You can go one better though by using a photo you have taken yourself.

Trim the pink gingham paper from the Papermania Red Hot Capsule Collection to measure 14cm by 20cm. Ink the edges.

Use a 14cm by 10cm photo and distress the edges lightly by sanding. Layer onto white card and trim flush with the left and right edges. Ink the top and bottom edges.

Use the X-Cut Scallop border punch to cut a border from the Red Hot lace effect patterned paper. Cut another border from white card and layer them together. Cut to measure 14cm long and glue behind the photo at the bottom. Glue onto the pink gingham paper.

Wrap white satin ribbon around, positioning it so it’s at the very top of the photo, secure behind with some tape. Make a bow and glue in place using a Stick It Dot.

Trim an A4 card in half to make an A5 tent fold card. Glue the paper panel in place.

Apply two layers of paper flowers at the bottom left corner of the photo, adding a paper circle to the centre. Apply your greeting using cardstock stickers, over lapping the flower on the left hand side.
Complete the card with a row of Mosaics along the ribbon.
