Four Flowers {Ladies' Card}

This is one of those cards that could easily be used for any occasion. You just have to switch out your sentiment. Mine is a birthday card!
This card is super simple with just enough detail. Here's how to make one of your own:

  1. Cut your standard white card stock base of 5.5 inches by 8.5 inches. Score and fold it in half to create a card 4.25x5.5 inches.
  2. Cut a piece of light green card stock 4x5.25 inches for your background piece. Don't glue it to the white base yet.
  3. Cut 4 pieces of white card stock 1x3.75 inches for your flower pieces. 
  4. You can barely see it, but I stamped a faint background on each piece of white card stock in a very light pink/peachy color.
  5. Next stamp each piece with a different flower in a different color. I actually only had 3 flowers, so I repeated one color and flower (the flowers on the ends are the same).
  6. Glue your flower pieces onto your green background piece. I started on the left and spaced them so that the space in between each piece was the same as the space above below and to the left side of the first piece. See picture 2 below.
  7. You should have some empty space left after gluing all your pieces. Stamp your sentiment here. If your sentiment doesn't take up the whole space like mine didn't at first you can use the ends of the flower stems to fill up that space. See picture 3 below.
  8. Glue all the pieces together onto the white base.

There you have it. Easy peasy!

Note: I used the "Oh, So Lovely" stamp set from Stampin' Up for the flowers. The sentiment was created using individual words from a clear stamp set (I think I got it at Hobby Lobby)
