Luxe Peony Friendship Card by Jean Okimoto


Let's combine the new Luxe Peony with a matching Garland Paper Pad 6x6 print on a floral friendship card for someone who loves flowers.  Hi, Jean Okimoto  here with a detailed design that's deceptively simple.

Cut the Garland 6x6 print with the largest Wrapped Stitched Rectangle die.  Attach it to a side-folded white A2 card.  Your background is done!

Blend Distress Oxides on the smoother side of Open Studio Watercolor Paper.  Colors used here are abandoned coral, picked raspberry and worn lipstick.  Spritz the paper with a light mist of water.  Air-dry it.  Spray it lightly with Imagine's Gold Sheer Shimmer Spritz -  from about 12" away.  Air-dry it for a few minutes, then heat-set it.

Cut it with the Luxe Peony set.  You can cut two peony sets from a sheet of Open Studio Watercolor Paper - save the extra pieces for another project.

We're borrowing the round dotted center from the Layered Fresh Flowers set.  It's cut from a yellow 6x6 in the Sunny Orange Collection.

Assemble the Luxe Peony - layering it over the picture on the die's envelope makes it quick and easy.  Or design a your own unique blossom!  Add the yellow center from the Layered Fresh Flowers set.

The Luxe Peony is self-layering - you don't need foam tape to add dimension. The layers  build their own natural dimension as they're adhered...no thinking required!

Cut the leaves - from the Luxe Peony set - from a Fresh Greens Collection 6x6.

Cut the new For You Post Script from a lighter Fresh Greens 6x6 - and from a scrap of the Garland 6x6 for a perfect match.


Attach the diecuts to the background.  Add light gold Treasure Chest Fairy Gemstones.  Cut an A2-sized rectangle of cardtock to protect the card front for mailing.

Special thanks to everyone who ordered my Winter Whites Class Kit from Impress here in Seattle and from Roxanne in Hawaii!  

Thanks for visiting our blog - see you again on Friday.  Be safe and keep warm if you're in snow country - keep cool if you're in sunny Hawaii!
