Vibrant Violet Wildflowers Slimline by Jean Okimoto


Send big thanks with Vibrant Violet wildflowers on a white-on-white Twiggy Thank You background.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with a slimline design with Memory Box garden greens and the Star Flowers Contour Layers from Birch Press Design.  

The greeting creates a monochromatic background for the flowers - and the bright flowers balance the bold Twiggy Thank You.


Cut white cardstock with the largest Wrapped Stitched Slim Rectangle die.  Cut the rectangle with Twiggy Thank You.  Very intentionally angled, not just slightly wonky.  Don't remove the diecut or the offcuts yet.  Tape the letters into the rectangle on the reverse side,  them remove the die.  

Attach the rectangle to a white slimline card - 3-⅝" x 8-⅝".  

Cut the Birch Press Design Star Flowers Contour Layers from different shades of the Vibrant Violet 6x6 Collection.  Cut the overlays and dotted center again from the violet/red Glitzy Glitter Pad sheet.  Assemble the flowers.  The base flowers are lightly embossed with guidelines for attaching the accent layers.  Great idea, thanks Dave!


Cut Tall Frilly Leaf Stems and the larger Fresh Cut Stems from different shades of green in the Lush Green Collection.  Trim the bottoms of the Tall Frilly Stems.  Attach the greenery and blossoms to the background.  Add green Bright Jewels.  

Cut a slimline-sized piece of cardstock to protect the card front for mailing.  I like using A-9 envelopes - instead of the standard A-10 business envelopes for slimline cards.  A-9's are slightly smaller -  about 3-⅞" x 8-⅞" - and great for slimline cards.

Thanks for visiting the blog - see you again on Friday!





so pretty, lovely colors and flowers!
