All you do is find a picture. In my case, I took these photos myself but if you're not so inclined, an amazing source of floral images is Stamping Mathilda, in addition to having one of the most inspiring blogs on the net, she offers beautiful free floral photographs at the start of each month.
Tip: Whenever you buy flowers quickly take a close-up shot using your macro setting. We bought pink daisies to place on the graves of Chris's Grandmas and that photo has been used in at least four projects.
Slice the picture into strips. Here I used one inch strips but you can vary the width for interest. Avoid too thin strips as they can break up the image and obscure it. Or not :-)
Sand all four sides of each strip. Attach to cardstock. Mount on patterned paper and then on your card.
Easy. Peasie. Pudding and Pie.
Here's the results:
I think clouds would make a great sympathy cards. And the daisies would be good for get well soon or a just because card.
