Hi everyone! I’m thinking of spring and bright flowers with this Friendship Flower Card today. I used watercolors to paint the flowers and added details with a black pen. Putting together cards with these flowers has become a favorite of mine! I used some leftover pieces from other projects for the background pieces.
Friendship Flower Card Parts
Paint three flowers and leaves with watercolors, when dry add details with a black pen and then fussy cut them out. Stamp a random grid pattern on a 5 x 7-inch white card with Distress Oxide Saltwater Taffy ink, that’s been off-stamped once. Then emboss a 2.25 x 7-inch white cardstock with Swirl embossing folder. Paint a 2.25 x 5-inch white cardstock with a mix of Distress Kitsch Flamingo Paint and white gesso. Stamp a verse on white cardstock with Onyx Black ink and heat emboss with clear embossing powder and trim to 1.375 x 1.875 inches.
Attach the embossed panel to the card using E-Z Runner® Ultra Strong Refillable Dispenser. Since it’s a strong adhesive it that works well for an embossed panel. Place Thin 3D Foam Squares White Mix on the back of a pink panel, peel the liners, and fasten to the card front.
Adhere Flowers and Verse
Determine flower placement and add Adhesive Dots Large on the backs of each flower. Don’t forget to allow space for verse. For the larger leaves, use Thin 3D Foam Squares White Mix to fasten to the card. And for smaller leaves, adhere with Adhesive Dots Large at the stem end. I also used Thin 3D Foam Squares White Mix under one or two of the top leaves (cut the foam squares as needed to fit leaves).
Apply Thin 3D Foam Squares White Mix to the back of the verse, peel the liners, and fasten in place on the card.
Thanks for Visiting!
