Flowers of Friendship Thank You Card - Birds Showcase Blog Hop

 Hi Everyone,

Today I have been colouring - not something I often do but I thought it was time to get out of my comfort zone and try some watercolour pencils with the Flowers of Friendship bundle. Let me show you what I did.


1 piece of just jade card stock 5 7/8" x 8 1/4", scrap for the sentiment mat
2 pieces of basic white 3 7/8" x 5 5/8" and a scrap for the sentiment, scraps for stamping flowers
Flowers of Friendship stamp set
Flowers & Leaves Punch
Watercolour Pencils
Blender Pens
Pretty Flowers Embossing Folder
Stitched Rectangle dies
Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine
Simply Scored
Bone Folder
Multipurpose adhesive
Memento Black ink


On the long side score the just jade card at 4 1/8" and fold and burnish to make the card base.

Run one piece of the basic white through the Cut & Emboss machine in the Pretty Flowers embossing folder and then adhere to the card front.  

Using watercolour pencils, colour in a selection of flowers in both sizes and then go over them with the blender pen to give them the watercolour wash and even out the colouring.  Arrange them across the width of the card, adding the smaller ones on dimensionals.

Stamp the sentiment for the front on a scrap and die cut with the smallest of the stitched rectangles and layer up on the next size cut out in just jade.  Add to the card front at the bottom right.

Stamp a sentiment on the remaining piece of basic white and adhere to the inside of the card and add another couple of coloured in flowers.
