DIY Hybrid Blossoms on a Slimline Thank You
by Jean Okimoto


Mix and match design elements from the new floral die sets for hybrid blossoms on a slimline thank you card.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with an easy way to create unique flowers in your favorite colors.  I wish growing flowers could be this easy!

P1012651 2

Cut an assortment of Vibrant Violet 6x6 sheets with the Gentle Blossom Watercolor Floral and Cottage Flower Stem Sets.  Mix, match and layer the pieces onto 3 flowers.  The smallest flower is a a pair of the Cottage Flower Stem's top layer - cut from different shades of violet 6x6 sheets.

Cut the leaves - from the Gentle Blossom Watercolor Floral - from Lush Green 6x6 sheets.  The leaves are designed to be layered in different shades of green - but they're just one color here so they don't compete with the flowers.

Cut the flower centers from a lighter shade of green, spread Sour Apple Sparkle Glitter Glue over them and set them aside to dry.  The  two Cottage Flowers have a section of the Gentle Blossom's  center.  The Gentle Blossom has the Cottage Flower's center.  


Cut white cardstock with the largest Wrapped Stitch Slim Rectangle die.  Cut the rectangle with the Vertical Line Collage.  Tape a strip of the dark brown Earth Neutral 6x6 sheet behind the collage.  Attach the rectangle to a white slimline card (3-⅝" x 8-⅝"). Attach and assemble the flowers and leaves.

Stamp the greeting - from the Big and Little Reverse Words Clear Stamp Set - on white cardstock with Verdant VersaFine Clair.  Quickly heat-emboss it with detail clear powder. Cut it with the matching die from the set.

Attach Winter Fantasy Fairy Gemstones.  Cut a slimline-sized piece of cardstock to protect the card front for mailing.

Enjoy the versatility of these new floral dies - and the great range of coordinating colors in the Memory Box 6x6 Color Collections.  Create flowers for all seasons and occasions by mixing and matching these great options!

Thanks for visiting - see you again this weekend...
