This week’s freebies are flower cards along with the tutorials on how to put them together. Very cute!  If you think you want these, you’ll want to  download them immediately because the flower cards will disappear shortly.  The tutorial can be found on Finger Click Saver, forever.  Bookmark Finger Click Saver as I’ll be posting more freebies for you roughly every two weeks.  Alternatively, if  you’re at all like me – I’m bad at remembering when I need to get back to a site for specific things coming out, so I sign up for their newsletter which helps a lot 🙂

If you don’t have the software, you’re missing out.  Each week or so, new freebies come out to add to the already extensive papers and projects the software comes with.  If you don’t own the software and would like to learn more click on over {here}.  Should you decide you want to purchase it, use this promo code STMMMS15607 to save yourself $10.

Flower Card Tutorial
Using MyMemories Software to Customize your Flower Card

  1. Download template file and install it into your software
  2. Using MyMemories Suite, choose Create Album From Designer Template and find your project
  3. Now you can print and enjoy the provided template, or customize it with your own papers and embellishments.

TIP:
You can right-click on the white guide and lock it in place to keep it from moving while you are working. Make sure this is the top layer of your project before printing.

Instead of adding the paper as a background paper, you can add it as an embellishment so that you can move the paper around.  This is especially useful when using papers with stripes or circles, so you can decide which part of the paper you want to use.

Once it is added as an embellishment, you can now select the paper and move it into the position you want it.

Just SAVE and PRINT on cardstock!

Flower Card Tutorial
How to Assemble your Flower Card

1.  Print your file on cardstock.

2.  Take your card template page and fold at all fold lines.  A bone folder helps make the creases nie and crisp to help your finished card to look nicer.

3.  There should be a total of 9 folds when you are done.

4.  Cut out your card.

5.  Turn your card over so that the printed side is down and pinch the sides of each petal together until all 6 petals are standing straight up.

6.  Gently push all the petals in one direction until they lay flat.

7.  You now have a flower card.

8.  Tie a ribbon (not included) or something equivalent around the card to hold it closed.

9.  Embellish as desired.  This card was embellished with a circle cut out from a piece of background paper.

Enjoy!
