A flower can say it all with beauty and simplicity.
Welcome back everyone!
The reason I was inspired to make this card is that I wanted to show how you can make a quick 15 minute card that is beautiful and simple. Because there is not a lot of coloring necessary in much detail this will be very easy and quick. There are really only two parts to this flower...the flowers and the leaves. Because I used this for my Wednesday Coloring tips in CDD, I had the opportunity to make out pictograph for the colors for both flowers and leaves.
Lets gather all the things you will need to make this project.
So as you can see it doesn't really require much in terms of supplies. It's mostly a simple card to put together. Even the coloring is fairly straight forward.

Before I started coloring, as you can tell from my images, I cut out a scalloped circle in white cardstock using the Scalloped Stitched In Circle Dies. On that cut out I stamped out my image and sentiment. This made my work that much easier.
Alright!!! We are right on track and moving onto the leaves. This will follow the same pattern as the roses. Not much difference there.
Here are the colors you will need for the leaves:
PC189: Shadow & Details
PC109: Dark Tone
PC912: Mid Tone
PC1005: Light tone
Now for this we will not use whites as greens don't usually tend to lighten as much as pinks do.
It's Construction Time!
We are now ready to begin pulling our card together now that we have completed our coloring.
To begin we will start with our white card in 5 1/2" x 4 1/4". We will blend on some Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide onto our paper to add color to the whole thing. Once it is blended to the color intensity that you would like you will die cut out your backing using the Fancy Frame Dies. I like this die in particular because of the stitched detailing it also gives.
Next we will use double sided foam tape to cover the entire back of our die cut. This will offer up stability to your card during mailing. Center the card onto you A2 card base and set it down.
Now all that is left is to Glue down you Sentiment piece in the center and add some pearl embellishments!
Wow! how easy was that and look at the simple, yet beautiful card!.
I hope that you enjoyed this quick and easy card making tutorial.
