One of the best and most convenient forms that beautiful blooms can take, from a cardmaker's perspective, is to be made into stickers, like these Vintage Flower Stickers from The Ink Pad:
These sets are exclusive to The Ink Pad and each one is different, but there are about two dozen sturdy, opaque stickers in each pack. Here's the selection that happened to be in the set I used, minus the ones I used, above:
For these cards, I paired the flower stickers with this very cool MT Die Cut Letters Tape, that I'm entirely smitten with:
I used dictionary paper for the background; affixed to plain white cardstock for sturdiness. I hit the edges with just a touch of Distress Ink for a slightly more retro feel. I love that this set of Mini DI's from Ranger has the four neutrals I use most: Antique Linen, Vintage Photo, Walnut Stain and Black Soot... basically the "greatest hits" of adding vintage patina!
I love that the tape is solid enough to make a statement, but still just the tiniest bit translucent, so that you can just faintly see the text paper behind it!
It was hard to decide whether the tape would be cooler when placed horizontally or vertically, so I made one card in each direction. Actually, I still don't know which I like more... maybe it's a tie?
There are so many varieties of tape and stickers at The Ink Pad, I'm sure there's a combination which is *PERFECT* for your next project!
