Since National Craft Month coincides with the official start of spring we can create a decoupage ‘Season’s Greetings’ card that is bursting with charm! Unlike old-fashioned decoupaging where you’d have to meticulously cut out tiny little designs with scissors, we have the Anna Griffin® Flower Pot Decoupage Die-Cuts Kit that is going to make quick work of turning a barren card into a blooming bouquet. Follow my Flower Pot Decoupage craft tutorial to master this project in just a few steps.
What you’ll need:
- Anna Griffin® Flower Pot Decoupage Die-Cuts Kit
- Your favorite Anna Griffin cardstock
- A scoring tool
- Glue or craft tape
1. Select Your Cardstock
Use your favorite Anna Griffin cardstock for the card surface that is matched to the Flower Pot die-cuts. The Perfect Palette Cardstock Kit comes with metallics, solids, and stripes in a variety of colors so you can mix and match lots of great options!
2. Ready Your Design
Select a flower pot die-cut to punch out for your collage. Next choose a flower die-cut you like and three different shades of that same flower. We can also punch out some flower die-cuts without the stems and layer them on top of other flowers to build dimension later.
3. Curl The Flowers
To give the flower die-cuts a more life-like appearance we are going to use a traditional decoupage technique of curling the paper. Use a scoring tool like the one that comes in the Cricut Explore Essential Starter Tool Kit to gently round the edges of each flower die-cut, similar to scoring ribbon.
4. Assemble the Bouquet
Apply the flower pot die-cut to the card surface and arrange the flowers die-cuts on the surface, adding flower layers where you’d like more depth.
5. Add Embellishments
