Flower card

After seeing a card with a large flower cut out of patterned paper I remembered that I had a large flower stamp that I’ve only used a few times.  I knew it would be perfect to use on some text paper.


I stamped the flower on the text paper then outlined it with a black pen and cut out.  I used a large gem for the center of the flower and some floss to add a bit of texture to the flower.


I cut outside the stamped image to add a bit more contrast from the patterned paper on the card.  I think I like the white edge just a bit better than the one that was cut close to the edge of the stamped image.

I’m slowing working on building up my card stash after selling quite a few last week in my tsy store.  Selling my cards not only brings in a bit of extra money but it helps me use my paper stash.  I’ve been selling them mostly in 25 card assortments for about a dollar a card.  Please check out my Etsy store if you are interested in some of my handmade cards.

  1. Great idea to use the text paper that way! I try to make envelopes out of mine but didn't think to cut out shapes from it for cards. So pretty!
