Among the many holidays we celebrate in May, we also celebrate Lawn and Gardens this month. Now I have been on a mission to only use what is in my stash and if you are anything like me I am sure that you have so many flowers you could probably start your own botanical garden. Well I am putting my flower stash to work for me with this set of cards.
On some kraft card stock I wrapped peach ribbon and some hemp cord. Next I made a bow using the hemp cord and glued it down. Then I glued one of the flowers from a set of 4 I found in the Michael's $1.50 bin. Finally I added some flatback pearls and stamped a sentiment, and that was it. Four beautiful note cards that would be great to give as a gift or use when you need a last minute card.
I love how these cards came out and since I have lots of different colors of these flowers guess what I'm gonna do?
So there you have four quick cards, using our stash, and celebrating a holiday all at the same time. I hope this inspires you to take a stroll through your Botanical stash and see what you can do.
Until next time..
