Freshly Picked - Flower3

Hey! Are you surprised to see me? Something had to give, and unfortunately it was the blog. Between working, making/selling Mother's Day Cards, bridal shower gifts, starting graduation stuff and cleaning up and working on the backyard/ has been CRAZY!!!! Crazy good, but crazy!

Here is another cut from the Freshly Picked cartridge. I used it to make Mother's Day cards. I think it would also make cute birthday cards or any sort I'm thinking of you card. Here is the rough draft.

After I decided I liked how it went together, I cut out a bunch!!

I used my Gypsy to weld two shadow pieces together for the card base.
All other layers that I cut are shown above.

The inside of the rough draft.

The first two pieces I adhered together were these two.

I cut this layer out of different patterned papers. I wanted to see how both would look!
I like them both. I do think I like one more than the other. How about you?

I inked around the edges of most layers to add some dimension/depth.

Added the flowers.
I did use foam dots between layers to give it even more depth/dimension.

These ones are waiting to be attached to the card base.

Attached to the card base and with sentiment.

Waiting for outside sentiment.

A different outside sentiment.

Here's a peek at all 4 done with their envelopes.
I ended up having to make envelopes for these cards because the envelopes I had on hand
were 1/4 inch too small. I will do an envelope post all by itself.
I do love the effect of the coordinating envelopes though.

Most of the cards had the sentiment seen above.
I inked around the edges of this layer with ink that matched the flowers on the front of the card.
As always, I added a little stamp to the back of my envelope.

I always sign my cards and add some sort of fun stamp to the back of them too.

I think these cards turned out fantastic. The pictures truly don't do them justice.
I have lots I want to share so lets hope things are settling down a little bit and I can share and catch up with all of you. Not only have I neglected my blog, I've neglected all yours too. I'm very sorry.

I hope all your projects are going well!
Thanks for stopping by!
hugs!!!! ~jen


  1. I'm in love with these cards! I love the crackled look of some of the flowers pots too... The flowers turned out really cute! Can't wait to see more. Hugs, Dawn

  2. Theses are super cute Jen! I love how you lined the envelopes too. I hope things have settled down for you. I have missed hearing from you. Can't wait for more!

  3. I understand, Jen. I've been so busy with work and other things, too, I haven't been blogging as much. Your cards are delightful!!
    Hugs, Cindy

  4. Oh, Jen, those are truly awesome! I love what you say on the back of the card! That's so true too!!!! Every time you make a card I think it's the best and then the next one I like even better! There's so much I like about them...the crackle, the gingham and plaid behind the are definitely a pro!
