This month I challenged my card makers guild to create items using daffodils.Â For my first creation, I decided to add to my long note cards collection. I love using flowers for note cards because they work for pretty much every occasion.
The daffodils were hand stamped and colored with artist markers. I used several shades of green and yellow marker to create flowers with depth and character.
And the yellow card stock base was a deliberate choice. I wanted these to be a bit more springy and light rather than a more serious feeling, which a darker base color would have evoked.
I'm hoping in the next few days the real daffodils in my yard will have bloomed and I can enjoy their beauty in person. The stems and closed buds have sprouted and now I'm just waiting for the bloom. For me, that will make it seem like spring is finally here!
I'll be back with more daffodils tomorrow.
