Honeyblossom Sprig Notecards Set

I'm going to need some thank you notes in the coming weeks, and since the Honeyblossom Sprig 98333 is my new favorite die, here is a set of notecards I made:

P1010021

Die cut Honeyblossom Sprig 98333 using watercolor paper. Leave the die cut in place. This will make your coloring easier.

P1010020

Color the die cut images using Distress Markers. Color outside the lines! Blend colors--I used three greens on all of the stems and leaves and multiple colors on the buds and blossoms.

P1010022

Punch out the Honeyblossom Sprigs.

P1010024

Cover each Honeyblossom Sprig with a clear embossing ink--I used the VersaMark pad.

Sprinkle on clear embossing powder. Use a heat tool to melt the powder. Use a pointy tool to hold down the sprig while heating it.

P1010005

The colors brighten and become more vivid with the heat embossing!

  P1010014

Use a narrow tape runner, teeny tiny pop dots, or Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive to attach each sprig to a notecard. Everyone seems to have a favorite adhesive, so use what you know works best for you.

For coordinating envelopes, stamp G1862 Whisper Print Leaf in a soft green shadow ink on each one.

To make a set as a gift for someone else, add stamps from the USPS. Package in a clear box and tie with a pretty ribbon. This might just be the perfect hostess gift when visiting a friend this summer!

Happy Crafting!
