In this month’s card class, the focus was on All About Flowers. A must was using the Forever Blossoms Bundle and the Parisian Blossoms Designer Series Paper. The cherry blossoms evokes thoughts of Spring and the cherry blossom stamp with it’s coordinating die are perfect for creating cards and projects. With the multitude of rainy days we’ve had in Georgia, hopefully the cherry blossoms will give us a showy Spring! As you’ve likely noticed, I enjoy using note cards and the Scalloped Note Cards & Envelopes coordinates perfectly with the designer series paper. The idea for coloring the cherry blossoms using Sponge Daubers comes from Patty Bennett. Just click on the link to Patty’s page for details. Sponging makes it a quick project.
If you want to make the Forever Blossoms Note Card, use a light pink Scalloped Note Card. Attach a layer of 5″ x 2-3/4″ Parisian Blossoms Designer Series Paper to the front of the card and a 1/2″ x 5″ strip to the inside right card edge. You want the strip to “peek” behind the scalloped card edge.
Using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink pad, stamp the cherry blossoms onto a 5″ x 2-1/2″ piece of Whisper White cardstock. Also on the Whisper White cardstock, stamp the Hello sentiment from the Good Morning Magnolia using Petal Pink Classic Stampin’ Pad. Add Petal Pink and Flirty Flamingo to the cherry blossoms with sponge daubers. To color the stems, use Old Olive Stampin’ Blends. Cut the cherry blossom stem with the coordinating Cherry Blossoms Die. To cut the sentiment, use the Stitched Labels Dies.
Assemble by adding the cherry blossom to the front of the note card using Stampin’ Dimensionals. Then, attach the sentiment label. Complete by tying a small knot bow using the Petal Pink Metallic Edge Ribbon and adhere using a mini glue dot.
TIP: Stamp multiple cherry blossoms onto Whisper White cardstock and have a color fest selecting a variety of colors for the blossoms. Cut each with the coordinating die and you’ll be set to create a variety of cards to have on hand.
