Hi! How are you this lovely day? With some sunshine peeking through in the window and falling on a vase on flowers in my house, I wanted to create a card full of flowers, but just using one flower. A natural looking bouquet would have lots of different types of flower, but I thought just one might be a challenge.
I've used the ever lovely Winnie and Walter In Bloom: Addie's Garden
First off, I stamped and white embossed the flowers, then coloured them with Zig Clean Color pens. I've blended a couple of colours together on some of them to try and give the realism you might find in the real thing. I created a structure like this at the top of the card to support the design of the flowers.
I extended the length of the stalks, by pulling the colour further at each end of the stalk. Trim out the stalks and create a stack as if it was a hand tied bouquet. You can see a bow in the picture- that's because I added one initially and then decided against it.
You can see here my original design and also to show you how I send cards like this- people have asked how to send them- just find an envelope larger than the card ;-) The sentiment is from The Party (Winnie & Walter)
Hope you enjoyed the blooms. They make a lovely card that's kind of a present at the same time- but without all the hassle of having to find a vase!!
See you next week,
