Easy Steps to Create 3D Foam Pennant Mother’s Day Card

With Mother’s Day just around the corner, I thought I’d share a card to celebrate her using 3D Foam Pennants as an accent and how I embellished them.

First I embellished the 3D Foam Pennants with an embossing folder for design and dimension. I used waxed paper to place them (with the top liner on) in the folder embossing in my manual die cutting machine.

Then I cut/embossed die templates to create my card panel and a die cut to create a center focal.

Going back to the 3D Foam Pennants, I used pink pigment powder to color each pennant. You only need a little bit of the powder (I used the powder that was stuck in the lid). I love how it shimmers – not sure if you can see it through the image but it is beautiful!

I adhered the pennant on the upper left corner after I adhered the card panel with E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips. Lastly, I adhered the circular die cut in the center.

Using the Adhesive Dots Medium, the flowers were secured on top of the die cut in a cluster.

To accent the flower cluster, I sprinkled white glitter on top of two swirls (you can die cut from 3D Foam Creative Sheets) and tucked them underneath the flowers 🙂

Stamped a sentiment onto patterned paper, handcut a ribbon trail banner and secured it with 3D Foam Squares Black, Regular for dimension. For a finishing touch, four small pearls were added on the 3D Foam Pennants.
