Hello everyone, this is Luciana here with a new post that I hope will inspire you!
Today we will create a fun and sophisticated flower bouquet card. I played with the individual stamped flowers and leaves plus some die cut leafy branches and this is the result!
Here’s how to create it:
Step 1: Cut a piece of patterned paper 8″ x 8″ to form the base of the card. (Options: Make a flat card as shown or make a top-fold square card base.) Using a piece of Kraft brown paper form the wrapping for the bouquet, just like what the florist would use.
Step 2: Using the Color My Flowers Clear Stamp set stamp some flowers and leaves onto White Soft Finish Cardstock.
Step 3: Color the images with watercolors (as shown) or with your favorite markers or colored pencils and then die cut the images using the coordinating dies.
Step 4: Die cut and color assorted leaf pieces using the Trio of Leaves die set (6 or 7 pieces), using different shades of green on each piece for variety.
Step 5: Arrange all the pieces inside the florist wrap from Step 1, using foam tape between some of the layers for dimension within the arrangement.
Step 6: Stamp the sentiment “Spring Fever” or another sentiment of choice with black ink onto White Soft Finish Cardstock. Cut around the sentiment for a rectangular banner and distress the edges with a sepia ink pad. Adhere the bouquet to the square card.
I really hope you have enjoyed this tutorial! Thank you for stopping by.

Really lovely card! I think the use of the bag is soooo clever! I may steal that idea. Thanks so much for sharing.
Love ur clever mind in thinking outside of the box, as in a traditional card!
Great use of the dies/stamps!
Beautiful card Luciana, is there a photo of the entire card?
This technique is wonderful especially for a person like me who loves flowers but hate to see them die,lol.
I can’t wait to try this. Thank you so much for sharing!?
