Flowers of Friendship Thank You Card - Touches of Ink Blog Hop

 Hi Everyone,

For the Touches of Ink Blog Hop, I decided to pull out a bundle that I haven't used for a long time - Flowers of Friendship stamp set and the Flowers & Leaves Punch - and I have teamed it with the lovely Gingham Cottage designer series paper.


1 piece of thick white card stock 5 7/8" x 8 1/4"
Scraps of So Saffron, Highland Heather, Garden Green and Basic White card
1 piece of dsp 3 7/8" x 5 5/8"
So Saffron ink
Highland Heather ink
Garden Green ink
Mint Macaron ink
Flowers of Friendship stamp set
Flowers & Leaves Punch
Iridescent Rhinestones
Simply Scored
Bone Folder
Multipurpose adhesive
Double Oval Punch


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

Adhere the dsp to the card front.

Using the scraps of card, stamp some of the flowers and leaves and then punch them out.  

Bend up the petals on the flowers and then arrange them in a pattern that you like on the card front, tucking the smaller flowers and the leaves in and around the larger flowers.  Add rhinestones to each of the flower centres.

Stamp a sentiment on a scrap of white card and then punch out with the Double Oval Punch and then add to the card front using dimensionals.

Stamp a floral image on the inside of the card.
