Flower Greeting Cards

Flower greeting cards are always a favourite - for any time of the year.

And any occasion!

Birthday Wishes, Happy Valentine, With Sympathy,  or just a simple Thank You.  

They can send any message!

Flower card designs can be classically elegant....whimsical.....fun.....colourful or any other refreshing alternatives. 

Have a go at creating your own 3D flowers with punches and dies.  Or stamp stunning flowers with layering stamps. 

There are so many possibilities....

Before starting your cards check out your card sizes and layers.


Flower craft punches are a quick and easy way to create your flower images. 

They can be used to make single flowers or joined together to create a 3D flower.  

(See Daisy Cards).

Both of the cards below were made with the Flower Garden stamp set and matching punch from Stampin Up! 

Although this set is now retired it is often available on ebay.

Layering Stamps

Flower greeting card using a layering stamp from Altenew

Layering stamps offer a fantastic opportunity to create realistic looking flowers with shading and depth.

Stamps are "layered" with different shades of the same ink colour.

The flower stamp sets from Altenew are easy to use as with each set has a detailed guide to layering the stamps.

This card uses the  beautiful Altenew Handpicked Bouquet stamp set with the Cherry Blossom and Green Meadows mini cube sets. 

The cube sets take all the hard work out of selecting your colour combinations.  Each set contains 4 different inks graduated from light to dark in one colour family.

These layering stamps are a pleasure to use.

Blending and Stencilling

Flower greeting card using distress oxide ink and the wildflower stencil from Tim Holtz

For this card blend a background with distress oxide inks (Twisted Citroen, Cracked Pistachio, Tumbled glass and Salty Ocean).

Stencil your image with the Wildflower stencil from Tim Holtz with embossing paste onto the blended background.

(I mixed shimmery white embossing paste with black ink to create a sparkly silhouette effect.)

Trim your stencilled card and add fun foam to the back. Mount onto a black card base.

Heat emboss a sentiment with white embossing powder at the bottom of the card base.
