Botanical Friendship Card
Spoil a pal with a heartfelt handmade card featuring beautiful botanical images from My Sentiments Exactly! This lovely vintage blossom complements the words My Sentiments Exactly is known for. You’ll have “innies and outies”— words for the outside of the card, along with coordinating sentiments for the inside. The fonts and style of the words are easy to mix and match, so you always have the perfect message!
This project was created by Sara Naumann.
You Will Need:
- Floral Friends Stamp Set from My Sentiments Exactly
- 100 Sheets of White Card 250 GSM
- Rare Earth Pitch Black Ink
- Rare Earth Load ‘N’ Fold Solid Stamp Tool
- Coloured Pencils: Pink and Green
- Cardstock: Black, Pink, Green and Kraft
- Black and White Ribbon

Design Tip: I’ve used coloured pencils for this card, using light pressure when adding colour to the image. You can press harder for bolder colour, too.
Use the Load ‘N’ Fold to stamp the flower and the sentiments onto white card.
Colour the flower with pink and green pencils.
Mat the piece onto black and then Kraft card. Wrap black and white ribbon around the top left and bottom right corners, securing the ends to the back of the cardstock. Add a bow, as shown.
Mat a strip of green cardstock onto Kraft, then glue across the card front and trim the ends. Add a strip of pink card matted onto black.
Glue the stamped focal to the card front.
For the card inside: Stamp the flower and the sentiments onto white card, stamping the flower partially off the cardstock. Colour the flower with a pink pencil. Mat onto black and Kraft card.
