Hi friends! Happy Saturday! We’re excited to welcome back special guest Cheiron Brandon to our blog and highlight this lovely collection of cards that are relatively quick and easy to make with the kiddos (or grand-kiddos!) or yourself and pair with a pen and postage stamps to make a great gift! Read on to learn more, and enjoy!
Hi there crafty friends! It’s Cheiron Brandon and I am thrilled to be back on the Simon Says Stamp blog this month using some products from Tim Holtz to create this fun floral notecard set. You don’t need a ton of supplies to make this set and would be a fun activity to make with kiddos too if you cut all the flowers out beforehand.
I used the Tim Holtz Sizzix Modern Floristry dies and cut them from a palette of blues and greens and some black and white for contrast. You could certainly cut more of these to have on hand for other projects too, or even just make a huge stash of notecards. I also cut some note card bases and stamped them with the little sentiments from the Note Quotes stamp set. Depending on the color of my card base (how dark or light it was) I stamped the sentiments in Black Soot Distress Archival Inks or emboss them in white.
To put them all together, I laid all of the sentiment panels on my work surface. I placed the flowers, leaves and petals to make little arrangements on each card panel. Once I figured out what would go where, I began adhering the arrangements down on each panel and let them dry. For some of the bigger flowers that were the focal points of the card, I adhered them with foam squares for a bit of added dimension. Once they were all dry, I adhered them to notecard bases. I love the look of this color combo and how fun it was to arrange the pieces for each card. This little set would be perfect paired with some small envies and tied up for a gift too!
Thanks so much for stopping by, and thanks to Cheiron for being our guest!
