Floral Bud and Stems
by Anne Thompson

We've had significant snow every other day for awhile with more in the forecast.  I'm ready for spring!  So today's card is a bright spring-y one that features the new FLORAL BUD AND STEMS 94647.  It's also a card that fits with this month's blog challenge of Floral Favorites.


to make this card

  • I began by cutting the FLORAL BUD AND STEMS 94647 three times using watercolor paper.
  • I left the dies in place and used my Kuretake watercolor paints and a small brush to add color to the flowers and stems.



  • Next I removed the dried flowers and stems carefully from the background watercolor paper and auditioned them on the three note cards.
  • I chose the lightest one for this card and added the Floral Bud and Stems images to the front of the note card using a glue pen.


This all-occasion card is now ready to add whatever sentiment is appropriate before it goes into the mail.  Most likely I'll use a stamped sentiment on a banner at the base of the stems.

I hope you'll participate in this month's blog challenge.  I'd love to see what you create with your Floral Favorites.

Happy Crafting!
