Dogwood Blossom Hello


Hi everyone!

Nothing says “hello” like dogwood blossoms in the springtime, right?

For today’s card I used bright spring-like colors to make gorgeous dogwood blossoms using the new Dogwood die set that is part of Susan’s Garden Favorites @teamspellbinders. This collection is filled with amazing flower dies – so be sure to check them out – and stay tuned because I’ll have another project coming from this collection in the next week!

For this card, I started by cutting the flowers, leaves, and branch out of Susan’s Garden Specialty Cardstock. I used Distress ink to blend the colors on the flower petals, flower centers, and the leaves. I used Copic markers for the branch and to get a tiny bit of darkness at the tips of the petals (where they dip in). I shaped the flowers and assembled them, then arranged them on a piece of white cardstock I had cut with a deckled edge die. I mounted the panel on my card front and added the “Hello” sentiment (cut from back card stock). For a bit of sparkle, I added a few sequins.
I just love the clean and simple look of this card with the bright pink and green of the dogwood. Happy Valentine’s Day and I hope you have a wonderfully creative day!

I fell in love with card-making many years ago and I’ve been hooked on it ever since. I love trying out new techniques and finding the perfect color combination for whatever I’m creating.

By nature, I am an uber-organizer and a steadfast planner, but as you’ll see, my creations are much more fluid. And while I love color theory, the concept of lights and shadows, and the importance of depth and perspective – these are not things I worry about when it comes to my creations.

I simply find joy in creating and delight in sharing.

I hope that by sharing my cards and other art with you here on my blog I can inspire you to create something you love!
