Sweet Summer Flower Stand Card
It’s always a good day when I get to buy flowers.
I stopped by the Garden Center this morning to pick up a few more. (can you have too many?)
I LOVE FLOWERS!
I was so excited when I got the opportunity to make a sample for Maker’s Movement using
the new Lemonade Stand Stamp and Die Set. It is so versatile.
It makes a cute little Lemonade Stand, Flower Stand, and Fall Cider Stand.

Building the Flower Stand
- When clearing out my mom’s paper collection, I found this woodgrain cardstock. I never knew what to use it for until I made this card. Now I wish I could tell you where to find it.
- The flower stand die has three sizes of dies to use as the board to build the stand.
- I adhered two pieces of paper together to create thickness. Run paper and dies through the Crossover II die-cutting machine to cut the shape.
- I used basic building construction to make my stand.
- For the awning, I die-cut two pieces. (one striped, one blue floral) Cut two sections from the blue floral and adhere to the striped awning piece.
Super Simple Watercolor Background
- The key to the background is to use watercolor paper.
- A simple swish with a wet brush and blue watercolor paint to create the background.
Lots of Dimension and Details
- What makes this card special is all the little details.
- I used a lot of foam dots behind the various pieces to create a lot of dimension.
- I doubled up the foam dots under the awning and sign.
I loved the way the card turned out. I will be making a Cider Stand for fall soon.
