Hello. Gaylynn here with my Technique Time series. Today, I am sharing a creative way to make a narrow shaped card with an oversized watercolor flower. This was made to fit into an A2 sized envelope.
Sentiment: So sorry for your loss.
Here are helpful tips for creating this narrow shaped card with an oversized watercolor flower. To begin, trim a card base to 11″ x 3″. Then, score at 5 1/2″ for a narrow top fold card base. Next, stamp and emboss the sentiment and accents directly onto the card base, leaving room for your main focal stamp to be added later. Then, stamp and heat emboss a big flower onto the smooth side of watercolor paper. For color, watercolor or use your color medium for the oversized flower. Next, cut out the flower with scissors (fussy cut). Then, add foam tape to pop up the oversized flower over the narrow card base. Finally, place it so that the card will still fit inside of an A2 sized envelope. For example, I placed my flower diagonally, so that part of it remains off of the card base.
Here is another look.
Finally, here is my video tutorial for this project. It will detail the full process.
