You are welcome to check out detailed instructions on how to make this card which are show below or feel free to hop on over to {Haley Dyer’s Blog } so see yet another great idea.

To start with your card base is 4 ¼ x 5 ½ with a side fold. 

Zip Strip two pieces cut at 5 ½  

 Outdoor Denim  CS 2 ¼ sq.

 Two tone blue B&T 2 x 5 ½

 S1205 Friendship bouquet

 WOG stamp set from Pemberley

 Z2340 Out Door denim ink

1771 Waterbrush

Z1142 Brown StazOn

 Z280 StazOn cleaner (optional)


                                Z2311 Chocolate

                                Z2310 Buttercup

                                Z2362 Honey

                                Z2337 Olive


                Y1010 2 x 6 ½

                Y1002 1 x 3 ½

                Y1003 2 x 2

Stamp your flower and one leaf on colonial CS with brown stazOn, from there you use markers to brush in color to flower and leaf.

I started with buttercup and brushed quite a bit of color onto flower, then barley traced the center of the flower with chocolate marker leaf with olive.  


 Next I am going to bring in the honey and add more color closer in to the base of the flower and gently pull out


 Lastly I will use my water brush to blend colors


Cut the leaf and flower out, layer onto the Outdoor CS 2 ¼ sq. 

I used foam tape to apply these.


 Now attach your zip strips to the top and bottom of card


Then place our B&T 1” down from top, I brushed mine with outdoor ink. And stamp the rope stamp from the Pemberley WOG kit above and below this piece, keep it close to allow for your saying.


On the inside of the card I put the saying, from Pemberly WOG kit and with outd oor ink stamp the flower image.


 Then put the outdoor Sq with flower in top left corner and you are finished.


Hope you enjoy this, now hop on over to {Haleys Blog}
