I was inspired to make an extra special birthday card for an extra special friend.
Using heavy gauge watercolour paper, I cut out a nine petal simple flower shape leaving a good sized circular shape in the middle (which will help with cleaner/sharper folding later on).
Using water colours I painted the back of the flower in funky spots and, once dry, the front of the petals in gorgeous yellow tones. My message was then written across the centre of the flower before folding all the petals inwards, laying one petal on top of the next. I attached this to a card blank and also made a little 'open me' tag to add the finishing touch! So sweet.
