Springtime Florals Card and Envelope

Hello Friends! Emily here (@popsofpaper) and today I’m sharing a floral card and envelope duo using Springtime Banners, Magnolia Sympathy and the beautiful new Watercolor Butterflies Embellishments

The Springtime Banners stamp set has so many little images to create beautiful boughs, wreaths and seasonal banners. My favorite out of all the images are the wavy roses so I decided to highlight them on my card. While sympathy cards are not my go-to card theme, I always like to have a few on hand when the time arises that a special loved one needs a smile in the mail. The sentiment from Magnolia Sympathy is so beautiful for such an occasion. 

To create my card, I stamped the rose images in the top left and bottom right corners (starting with the largest rose image and ending with the smallest image). Then I added in the greenery images. I stamped all of the images with Nocturne VersaFine Clair Ink and then colored the floral images with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers in (Peach Pink-202, Lemon Yellow-051, Yellow-050, Bright Yellow-052, Turquoise Green-042 and Green-040 ). Then I stamped the sentiment from Magnolia Sympathy with Nocturne VersaFine Clair Ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder for a little extra dimension. Then I filled in all the extra space between the roses and greenery with little hand drawn polka dots. To finish the card, I adhered three beautiful butterflies for a little extra sweetness. 

For the matching envelope, I used the medium size banner image to create a wrapping from an address. The banner was heat embossed with white embossing powder, along with the please deliver to sentiment which I had in my stash. I stamped the address lines with black ink. To finish the envelope, I stamped the rose images on sticker paper and colored with Copic Markers in similar colors to match the card. 

So there we are friends! A sweet floral card and matching envelope for a special loved one who needs a little hug in the mail. I hope you enjoyed my projects today and it inspires you to use small image stamps in big ways!

Big Paper Hugs!
