Backyard Floral Stems
by Anne Thompson

Following along with this month's blog challenge, here's another of my floral favorites:  BACKYARD FLORAL STEMS 94638.


to make this card

  • I die cut the BACKYARD FLORAL STEMS 94638 four times using watercolor paper.
  • I left the die cuts in place and used my Kuretake watercolors to paint the flowers and stems.


  • While waiting for the paint to dry I chose three different plaids from SPRING PLAID PP1012, trimmed each one to 5 1/4 X 4, and added each to the front of a white A2 note card.


  • I carefully removed the painted flowers from the watercolor paper background--before painting I had run the die/paper through my machine several times to cut through the thick watercolor paper.
  • I added the painted flowers to the front of one plaid notecard using a glue pen.


And because I had painted more than one bunch of flowers and had another card with pink plaid paper, I made a second card.


Two pretty floral all-occasion cards ready for appropriate sentiments before popping into the mail!

Happy Crafting!
