It’s May 1st! I hope it finally feels like Spring where you are – seems like Winter just didn’t want to leave this year! I’ve got a Simple Flower Card to brighten up your day. 🌸
This flower stamp is an older one from Hero Arts that has been discontinued, but this set from Tim Holtz would work great! Or use your favorite flower stamp. The sentiment stamp is from Pink Ink Stamp Company. I haven’t been able to locate the stamp online, but choose whatever sentiment you’d like to use from your collection.
You’ll also need 2 of your favorite embossing folders. I used the Fancy Fan folder from Stampin’ Up – it’s no longer available but you can find a similar one here. I also used a mini honeycomb embossing folder similar to this one.
To make the card, emboss a panel of terra cotta card stock with the fan embossing folder. I used card stock that has a white core and then lightly sanded the raised areas. Attach this panel to a white card. Stamp the flower on white card stock using terra cotta and green ink. Trim into a triangular shape and lightly sponge the edges with green ink. Attach to the card. Emboss a strip of green card stock with the honeycomb folder, attach a terra cotta ribbon to the strip and attach the strip to the card over the stamped image. Stamp the sentiment on white card stock with terra cotta ink. Trim into a banner shape and lightly ink the edges with green ink. Attach to the card.
By changing the color scheme or sentiment, this layout can be used for almost any occasion from thinking of you to birthday or even a sympathy card. It would also make a great Mother’s Day card!
