Honey Doo Crafts: Cherry Blossom Birthday Card

Hi there, good to see you over at the blog today! This card is another card using some wonderful stamps by Honey Doo Crafts that were created for the Hochanda show this Saturday just gone. This was the first card I made when I received my parcel from Honey Doo Crafts and it is very easy to make this cherry blossom birthday card. Even though it is watercolour, the embossing takes away most difficulties seen with watercolours as it helps contain your water within areas. Whatsmore, this stamp set comes with coordinating dies meaning no fussy cutting!

cherry blossom birthday card Process overview

Start off by stamping in versamark a selection of the cherry blossom flowers and leaves onto smooth (hot press) watercolour paper. Cover with white embossing powder and heat set. It is easy to colour the images in before you die cut these, and I used my watercolours from Altenew for these flowers. Using a section of pinks, I added a soft wash to the petals and dropped in dark pigment to the middle of the flowers.

With the aid of the lighter colour, I blended the darker colour out, following the lines of the flower in the stamp. This will help to give dimension to your petals. When you images are dry, using the coordinating dies to cut the images out. Before adding to a card panel, add a few paint splatters in colour corresponding paint for added interest to the background. 

Foam mount the flowers to the card, offsetting in one corner for interest. Tuck in and adhere the leaves around the flowers and foam mount an embossed sentiment from the Birthday Sentiments from Honey Doo Crafts. Lastly, foam mount the panel onto a white card base and add a few sequins to finish the card off.
