Miss You Card
by Sara Cook

Hi everyone!  I am back with another pretty floral card today using the Fresh Cut Stems die set.  The flowers in this set remind me of my mom and I do miss her.  She loved smaller blue flowers.  This is a quick card beautiful card to recreate for someone you miss.  You can change up the colors to the recipient favorite.  



Die cut the Tall Frilly Leaf Stems from a dark green paper from the Lush Green Pad to get 3 stems.  Die cut the Fresh Cut Stems dies, the ones without the flowers attached, from a lighter shade of green from the Lush Green paper pad.  (I love these paper pads with the different shade for die cutting.  It makes layering so much easier). Die due the flowers from the lightest aqua from the Fresh Aqua Pad.  Shade the bottom of the flowers with Distress Salvage Patina Ink.  Add a little yellow/bronw to the center of the flower with a water color marker, dabbing lightly. Glue the flowers on the stems. Arrange the Tall Frilly Stems in the background gluing them towards the bottom where the overlap.  Then adhere the Fresh Cut Stems on top.  Cut bakers twine and tie a simple not around the area that was glues. Trim off excess.



Cut a sheet of Open Studio Watercolor Paper to A2 size.  in the center wet with water and do a quick water color wash with Distress Salvage Patina ink spray. I spay a little on the table and pick up with a soaked brush.  Jut added a light color to the center of the paper.  Then dry off the brush and plater the background with the Salvage Patina.  Blot off with a paper towel to mute the splatters into the background.  Heat dry.  Die cut the Hex Half Pinpoint from Open Studio Watercolor Paper, twice.  Adhere to the background.



Adhere the background panel to a A2 cream colored card.  Adhere the Miss You Posh Script sentiment, die cut from the matching paper as the flowers, to the bottom right hand corner of the card.  Glue the bouquet in the center of the card.







Such a lovely bouquet, like your splattered background and pretty framing for them!

Can’t go wrong with a bouquet of flowers! Such a pretty card!
