Plant Kindness Card

A lovely, fresh card just perfect for springtime giving.

Papers Used in this Project

  • White Card Stock
  • Green Card Stock

Quick Instructions for this Project

  1. Cut a piece of white card stock to 4 ¼” tall by 5 1/2″ wide.

  2. Out of another piece of white card stock cut the lattice die.

  3. Apply cornstarch with an embossing buddy or similar tool to the lower section of the white card stock. Stamp the “plant kindness” stamp in VersaMark. Sprinkle on embossing powder, tap off, and heat to emboss.

  4. Stamp the Mini Triple Flower in VersaMark across the card, making sure to overlap the flowers a bit. This will ensure that when you fussy cut the flowers they will cut seamlessly. Sprinkle with embossing powder, tap off excess, and heat to emboss. Fussy cut the flowers along the lower petals.

  5. Stamp the Tiny Ivy Leaf in new sprout, the Mini Solid Vine in pistachio, the Tiny Branch in rich cocoa, and Tiny Dragonfly in rich cocoa.

  6. With a pink watercolor pencil, color in the flowers, making them a bit darker near the center. Using a water brush, spread the pigment from the center throughout the petal.
  7. Glue the lattice piece to the top of the card base. Apply pearls.

  8. Slip a piece of green card stock under the stamped area and glue. With a paper trimmer, trim any excess green card stock so that the card sides match.

    Lovely colors for a springtime border.. Thanks for the tip about overlapping the flowers.

      Thank you Aunt Min! Yes, the first time I did it, I did not overlap, so when I cut it out there was space between the flowers and it was hard to figure out how to cut it to make it look good. My inclination would be to follow along the flower up higher, but that looked awful. The second prototype was perfect on the stamping. On this card, however, I have a bit of a gap in one of the flowers. I tried making a mask and stamping again, but because it needed to be embossed and had already been embossed, it did not work. I just brushed off the embossing powder and did the best I could on cutting it out 🙂
