Wisteria Wonder, one of this years in-colours, is such a beautiful delicate purple and it's perfect for these crocuses. So how do you make them? It's simple...
With these two, I cut all the hearts in half so that I could vary the amount the crocus was open. The large image in the Just Believe stamp set is brilliant for making background foliage and I added some leaves made from strips of Vanilla and Ivory card stock with a stripe of Old Olive marker down each side.
I popped the crocuses in a 'basket' made of Early Espresso card stock embossed using the Square Lattice embossing folder, and tied it up with this scrumptious wisteria wonder ruffled ribbon - isn't it gorgeous?!
The card is finished with sentiments put together with my stamp-a-majig. I added the bird from Elementary Elegance with a surprise flash of yellow. I find these little images invaluable for embellishing sentiments.
Don't you just love floral cards? Well, so do loads of people - so they sell really well! Why not send some floral cards in to the St Lukes Charity Challenge this month - you'll find the address on the website; you'll have great fun making them and they'll be sold to raise money to keep the St Lukes hospice open and caring for terminally ill patients and their families.
