Bouquet of Note Cards

The early spring here is so inspiring.  My flowering crab trees that usually don't bloom until Mother's Day are full of blossoms and there are new green shoots and flowers everywhere you look.  So I was inspired to make a set of note cards.  I saw this card sketch several places online recently and thought it would work great with the flower dies.  Here's the "bouquet":

Flowercards

The backgrounds for the peony and tulip cards were created using the method I used on the February 10th post - stamping in versamark and swiping with Distress ink.  The backgrounds were all cut with rectangle nesting dies.  I just used scraps of cardstock and patterned cardstock to create the flowers.

Here's the tulip card:

  • Distress Spun Sugar to sponge tulip edges

Here's the fuchsia card:
