Flowering Zinnias Gratitude Card

Flowering Zinnias - New Online Exclusive Items

Fabulous... this is the most fabulous collection of items to make beautiful projects with. 

I have always had a love for flowers, and not just your usual admiration, but knowing a little more.  I have to say, I knew nothing about the Zinnia flower!  So I read up on this one and here's what I found at www.flowermeaning.com:

  1. Did you know the zinnia was names after a botanist, Dr. Zinn so guess what.... NO Latin name no one can pronounce
  2. The flower shape can be dome shaped with many petal layers or more simplistic, resembling a daisy
  3. Hummingbirds and butterflies are both drawn to the flower
  4. The blooms can be as small as 1" in diameter or up to 7".  I would love to see a 7" bloom.
  5. Stalks can grow up to 4 feet tall !!!
  6. Here are some color meanings:
    1. yellow:  daily remembrance
    2. white:  pure goodness
    3. magenta:  lasting affection
    4. red:  of the heart, steadfastness, familial ties, like the stead beating of a heart
    5. mixed:  thinking of an absent friend

Here is my card I created...

I had so much fun making this card.  It was like putting a puzzle together.  I chose my colors, die cut several pieces from a variety of dies and just started piecing them together.  

My card base is Blackberry Bliss along with the background to the flower and matting for words (stamped in Blackberry Bliss).   All colors of card stock and items can be found below in the product list.   I hope you liked this one.
