The photo below shows the front of the card when it is completely closed. (The photo above shows the card when it is slightly open.) To create the flowers, I watercolored a piece of CTMH’s watercolor paper. After it was completely dry, I stamped the flowers and leaves from the Springtime Wishes stamp set with Black Memento Ink. Then I cut them out using the coordinating Springtime Wishes Thin Cuts Dies. You can either cut your shapes first and then stamp them or you can stamp and then cut. I prefer to stamp first. I use a small piece of Washi Tape to hold the dies in place over my stamped images before running the paper through my Cuttlebug machine.
I cut 1" off the right side of the front flap of the card base. Then I adhered the die cut flowers and leaves over the right edge of the card with various layers of 3-D Foam Tape. I added a few Clear Sparkles to the center of some of the flowers. Then I stamped the “Thank You” sentiment (also from the Springtime Wishes stamp set) to the left of the flowers.
I like to embellish the inside of my cards lately as well. I used a small piece of White Glitter Paper on the inside of the card that peeks through on the right side of the card when it is closed. Then I cut a thin strip of the watercolored paper and adhered it to the edge of the Glitter Paper. I stamped the “for your kindness” up the side of the strip.
Finally I added another flower and some leaves to the bottom of the inside of the card to finish it off.
