1Daffodil Cutaway Card 2White and Pink Roses Theatre fold Card 3Floral Toppers 4Pink Flowers Shattered Pyramid5Abundance of flowers

  1. Daffodil Cutaway Card Sheet 1 and Daffodil Cutaway Card Sheet 2 by Sarah Edwards (Two sheets printed back to back onto card make this simple to cut out and put together card.  Only straight edges to cut).
  2. White and Pink Roses Theatre fold Card by Jean Gordon (Another card where the design sheet contains the card base, so if printed onto good card there’s no need to find an additional card base.  The rose and bow are a bit more intricate to cut out, but are not the most intricate I’ve seen, and as the main card has the image the additional bits don’t all need to be added.)
  3. Floral Toppers by Angie Palmer (9 different sized, straight edged, floral toppers that can be used singly on a small card or by putting on a few for a larger card.)
  4. Pink Flowers Shattered Pyramid by Sarah Edwards (This card has many pieces to cut out but they are all straight edged triangles, other than the main image which is rectangular.)
  5. Abundance of flowers by Angela Wake (The wavy edge of the corner stacker is the most difficult bit to cut out on this card and this is not particularly difficult, just waving back and fore.)
