As I thought through this month’s theme, I was drawn back to my first childhood home in Missouri where we spent as much of our days outside playing with the other children in the neighborhood.

I remember (who knows how accurate this memory actually is) having white Hydrangeas’ along one full side of our house. I would refer to them as the “snowball” flowers.

I always wanted to have fun colorful flowers and wasn’t all that excited about the sea of white flowers so…I would pick flowers from our bushes and trot on over to the neighbors house to pick all the vibrant flowers they had and replace them with our fluffy white ones. Needless to say, I would get into quite a bit of trouble as it was pretty obvious where the replacement flowers had come from. I guess at the age of 5, I thought I was being kinda sneaky.

For my project I created a simple yet elegant monochromatic card featuring the Hydrangea Haven stamp set that brings me back to those long summer days.

I paired the glorious Hydrangea blooms with the versatile greetings of the Peaceful Moments stamp set.

I love that this neutral color scheme and card layout can be used for Thank You, Celebrations or evening as a Sympathy card.

I don’t know about you, but I love adding a little extra special touch to my handmade cards. I have 3 great tips for you that will really take your cards to the next level. The best part is, these are super simple and do not add a lot of extra time to the creation process.

Here’s the tips:

💜 Add a little texture!  On this project some great texture was added simply by embossing some stamped images on the Vellum layer.

 

💜 Add some dimension! Elements at various heights add so much interest to your cards. Here I die-cut a few of the flower petals, colored them with some Clear Wink of Stella and popped them up with some foam dots.

 

💜 Bring the design to the inside! Bringing a touch of the design element to the card inside really gives your projects a special finishing touch. Simply adding the embossed vellum layer to the card inside ties the card elements all together.

Comments

  1. I loved seeing all the “snowballs” too during my childhood drives through the back roads of Tennessee! Love the heat embossed vellum layer – such an exquisite touch! Thanks for the inspiration as always. x

  2. Wendy, this card is gorgeous! I would never have thought to do it in white, Hydrangeas are my 2nd favorite flower, lilacs being my first 🙂

  3. Wendy, I love the simple elegance of your design. You have the gift of restraint, for sure! Our new house has a line of hydrangeas along the back fence and from what I could tell of the last of the blooms when we moved in a few months ago, at least some of them are white. They’re just sprouting up at the moment.

  4. Oh I love hydrangeas so much. As a child, I picked daisies and poppies on the sides of the road that brought me back from school for my mother. Finally… the stems were a little forgotten, I only picked the flowers…. This jump is a nice reminder of these moments and your project is magnificent! Thanks for sharing!
