Handmade Greetings

Today, let's get our craft on and make a handmade card.

I'm inspired by the pink cherry blossoms against 
a clear, blue sky. 

 I'm using baby blue card stock and white envelopes.
{I got these on sale at Staples}.

 My impression of cherry blossoms rendered in watercolor.

I painted a few more blooms on a separate sheet and 
once dry, cut around the flowers. 

Then I attached these on the painted branches with 
mounting tape. 

That way, some blooms are raised, giving the 
card a two-dimensional effect. 

All I need to do is write an inscription inside, then it 
will be ready for mom for Mother's Day!
