Cardmaking - March - flower images

These cards feature colour printed flower images - I had a bunch of them in my stash and do not clearly recall where I bought them. Certainly, stickers or 3D card elements could easily be substituted for the images. Cutting images from junk mail, seed catalogs or commercial cards would also work.
I colour printed the greetings onto white cardstock to coordinate with the image and mounted the images at the top. Added a piece of wider ribbon just below and glued both ends to the back of the element using double sided tape. The slim ribbon is tied to it using double knots which creates a nice dip making a perfect little accent for this card. The bottom edge is trimmed using decorative scissors but could be torn instead for a different look. This accent element was mounted to the card front which had an embossed layer glued to it.
Keep your eyes open for interesting images that can be used for cardmaking - there are all kinds of places to get them and sometimes even for free!!
