It's spring (even though it's not feeling much like it here in Kansas at the moment....brrrr!) and the flowers are blooming. Today I'm sharing cards featuring the gorgeous florals from the Simon Says Stamp Spring Flowers and More Spring Flowers stamp sets. These beautiful flowers make a fantastic paper garden, don't you think?!!! A simple Distress Inked background with stamped greetings from the Sending You Stamp Set add the perfect backdrop for these cards.
Florals and greenery from the Simon Says Stamp Spring Flowers and More Spring Flowers stamp sets were stamped on Bristol Smooth Cardstock with Versamark Ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder. The images were watercolored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and a water brush pen before being die cut with the coordinating dies.
For the background, I blended Cracked Pistachio and Twisted Citron Distress Inks on Bristol Smooth Cardstock before spritzing with water from a Distress Sprayer and blotting dry with a paper towel. Greetings from the Winnie & Walter Sending You Stamp Set were stamped on the background with black ink.
The flowers and greenery were adhered along the bottom edge of the card as shown, trimming the excess to fit the card panel. Glossy Accents was adhered to the small circles and throughout the card to give the illusion of dew drops.
Each panel was secured to a white side fold card base to finish the design.
