Floral card making

I've been experimenting with my card making lately and decided just to go for it tonight - no templates, just a pencil, paper and my craft knife! Tonight I decided to go with a little floral pattern. 

Materials

  • Cardstock paper - 2 colors
  • envelope 
  • pencil
  • craftknife
  • metal ruler
  • glue stick

 

Process

  1. Measure the cardstock against the envelope to make sure it would fit inside
  2. Measure 1 inch around the border which is where I'd have the freedom to create
  3. Start drawing flower patterns in that 1 inch border
  4. Carefully cut around them using the craftknife
  5. glue the contrasting cardstock in the middle
