Quick and Easy Dried Flowers Card

We’re sharing how to make a quick and easy dried flowers card as we team up with some of our favorite ladies for the Lifestyle of Love Blog Hop hosted by the always fabulous Cindy of County Road 407.

If you’re coming over from Cindy’s blog, welcome, we’re happy to have you here. Didn’t you love the vintage pieces she used to dry wildflowers?

I tell her we should go shopping together all the time!

One of the things I love most about these blog hops is that they push me out of my comfort zone to create things I wouldn’t normally think to create.

And this quick and easy dried flower card is no exception.

Don’t get me wrong, store-bought cards are great.

We use them all the time.

But there’s just something about sending a handcrafted card with a personal message that elevates the experience from ordinary to extraordinary.

Here’s a look at how to create a quick and easy dried flowers card…

Dried Flowers Card Supplies:

  • Cards
  • Dried Flowers
  • Glue
  • Brush (for glue application)
  • Tweezers
  • Markers
  • Computer and Printer, optional
  • Scissors
  • No 2 or Graphite Pencil
  • Ballpoint Pen

Dried Flowers Card Steps:

Gather your supplies and make sure your workstation is free from dirt and debris.

Then place your monogrammed letter on the front of your greeting card using a freehand or simple transfer method.

If you’re using the simple transfer method, use your home computer to print out a monogrammed letter of your choice.

Use caution and care as scissors will be sharp when you cut out around the letter.

Next, flip your paper over and shade the back of the letter using a graphite or No 2 pencil.

Flip your paper over again and carefully trace the outline of the letter using a ballpoint pen.

As you lift your paper, you should see the monogrammed letter has been transferred.

Finally, use a marker (or colored pencil if you’re worried about bleed-through) to color in your monogrammed letter.

Once you have your letter in place, create a design for your quick and easy dried flowers card.

Next, use a craft brush to gently apply glue around the letter.

Then place your dried flowers on top of the glue using tweezers.

Keep in mind, that you’ll have to work quickly so the glue won’t dry before you have your flowers in place.

Once your flowers are in place, gently brush another coat of glue on top of the flowers to properly secure them to the greeting card.

After the glue has dried completely, you’re ready to add a thoughtful message inside!

We waited 24 hours just to be on the safe side.

The flowers are so delicate!
