Vivid Textured Flower Card

This step-by-step Vivid Textured Flower Card tutorial will show you how to make paper flowers for your handmade cards. The flower card is vibrant and sure to put a smile on your recipient's face. The flower is made up of photo corners and you will use a die cut to create the curvy stem, which is a great contrast to the hard edges of the flower petals. As far as handmade card ideas go, this tutorial is awesome because it inspires you to create a unique and eye-catching card design that jumps off the page.

Vivid Textured Flower Card


  • 3D Foam Hearts
  • White Photo Corners
  • Adhesives Sheets (4 x 6)
  • E-Z Dots® Permanent
  • 3D Foam Squares (Small)

Other Materials:

  • Card Stock (4 x 6)
  • Card Stock Card
  • Tissue Paper
  • Leaf Die Cut (Paper Smooches)
  • Green, Red, and Pink Ink
  • Circle Paper Punch (1.5 inches)
  • Yellow Fun Flock
  • Sentiment Stamp



  1. Scrunch your tissue paper for texture. Then apply the adhesive sheet to the card stock and pat the tissue paper down.

    Step 1  Step 2
  2. Die cut two leaves from your card stock and apply green ink to emphasize the texture. This technique gives the leaves a realistic touch.

    Step 3
  3. Ink up some White Photo Corners with a red ink and then begin placing them on your pre-punched circle.

    Step 4
  4. Then, ink up some more White Photo Corners with pink ink. Add the pink layer to your flower.

    Step 5
  5. Continue alternating colors until you come to the center. Finish off the center of the flower with a 3D Foam Heart. Apply yellow Fun Flock to the heart.

    Step 6
  6. Stamp your card with your intended message. Adhere the leaves to the card using the E-Z Dots® Permanent. The dots only stick to the thin area of the leaves so there is no worry about visible adhesive.

    Step 7
  7. Lift a few of the leaves with 3D Foam Squares (Small) to add dimension. Adhere your paper flower to the card.
