Momenta Flower Card

Hi, Everyone! I have  a SUPER easy card with you that's featured on the Momenta blog today!   It’s easy to make and easy to put together several at a time in an assembly-line-style if you need to make a LOT of cards in a jiffy—invitations, thank you cards, birthday cards, etc. I saw a similar card online and set about figuring out how to make one of my own. I love that it looks so much like the Momenta logo- that's why I decided to call it a "Momenta Flower!"

To make ONE card, you will need:
1 Card Base cut at 4 ¼ inches by 5 ½ inches
Cardstock cut at 4 ¼ inches square (mine is black)
4 Squares cut at 1 ½ inches (I used for different patterned papers from the Kaliedoscope collection)
4 squares cut at 1 inch
Decorative strip of paper cut at 4 1/1 inches (I used my scalloped edge punch)
Tape Runner/Adhesive
Foam Tape
Corner Punch
Sentiment stamp/Ink
Button
Strong Double-Sided adhesive or wet glue

First, add adhesive to the decorative strip of paper and attach it to the back of your cardstock (black) square. Leave just enough hanging out so that you can see the pattern (about ¼ inch).


 
After attaching your cardstock square to the front of your card base (sorry- forgot to take a photo of this step), stamp your sentiment.


Now, using a corner punch, punch two opposite corners of your 1 ½ inch squares.



Attach the 1 ½ inch squares to the front of your card with the sharp corners pointing toward the corners of your square piece of cardstock.


Now, punch opposite corners of your 1 inch squares and add a bit of foam tape to the back. Adhere them on top of the 1 ½ inch squares. This creates a great bit of dimension!


And, for the final touch, using a strong double sided adhesive (or a wet glue), attach a button to the center of your flower!



Wasn’t that easy? Once everything was cut, I assembled these six cards in a matter of 10 minutes!


Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you were inspired!
