Stamped Card with Flowers

This card is a cheery way to get in touch with someone special. The motifs are stamped onto watercolor paper and then colored with watercolor pencils and water to give them a painted look.



Stamped Greeting Card With Flowers 1

For this card you will need:

- yellow card
- clear stamps from Fiskars® “Petals from Scratch”
Silicone Stamps with Flower Motifs

- clear or rubber stamp with message ”Take Time to Enjoy the Simple Things in Life” or other other vertical message
- black pigment stamping ink
- clear embossing powder
- heat gun
- water color pencils (yellow, orange, green)
- water brush or paint brush and water
- white and yellow cardstock
- four small orange brads
- scissors
- decorative edged scissors
- needle and soft underground such as a piece of foam or cardboard box side
- ruler


1. Stamp 3 flowers, 2 stems and 2 leaves onto watercolor paper. Cover the images with the embossing powder, use the heat gun to emboss them and then color them with the pencils. Instructions for this technique are in the tutorial links below. Once the images are dry, cut them out leaving a small white border around. Place 3-D foam pads on the backsides of the flowers. Set all the stamped images to the side for a moment.
2. Stamp your message onto a piece of cardstock that is the same color as your card. Here the color yellow was chosen. Emboss the message and cut out in a long rectangle shape. Place aside for a moment.
3. Use the decorative edged scissors and cut out a strip of cream colored paper that is about 4-5 cm wide and shorter than the height of your card. Adhere this strip to the left hand side of the card. Now take your stamped images and arrange first the leaves and stems onto it and glue them on. Then place the three flowers over the leaves in a pleasing way, remove the paper backing of the foam pads and adhere the flowers over the leaves like you see in the images.
4. Open the card and place the front side onto a piece of foam or a cardboard box side. Place the greeting centered over the right hand side of the card. Use a large needle and poke a hole in each of the four corners through the greeting and through the card. Place a brad in each of the four corners and close. Cover the inside of the card front with a second piece of matching cardstock to hide the brads if you like.
