Click on the images below to launch the pattern which can then be printed

Trace whole card in white ink or gel pen. Emboss double lines round flowers and use any gridwork pattern of your choice inside the flowers.

I used a micro sun tool inside the corners on the leaves.

Perforate out the semi-circle arch shapes with twinbold needle and cut away with scissors.

Use any sun tool inside double edge on top and bottom of card.


Trace in white gel pen or ink. Half emboss each little section of the pattern, just half way along it.

Emboss the centre flower a little heavier, and the bobbles in the centre.

Trace and emboss the greeting until white.

Place on a grid and perforate into each space as shown on sample. Attach to dark card with foam pads or double sided tape underneath embossing.



I made this card as an A6 size.

The stencil, sadly is no longer available, unless you already have one!


I used a white propelling pencil with white lead to trace the flower and embossed it with a large ball tool only, to obtain soft edges.

The only bits done on the top of the parchment are the three turn-unders!

Erase all pencil when embossing is finished.

Use a small ball tool for the stamens only.

I used a PCA Bold Straight Grid for this border and did it first.

I just used a very simple pattern for the border and cut out the crosses, which would make a nice Easter pattern too.


Trace the design in white pencil as the card above, and emboss lightly as before with large ball only. Start from the outside edge of flowers and work inwards towards the centre, all from the reverse.


Very lightly feather the leaves as shown.

Use small ball tool again for the stamens.
