DIY Garden Note CardsYou will need:

All you need is:

blank note cards

ink pads in medium-value colors such as green, blue, orange, red, purple, and lavender

Watercolor paint

Small brushes

Leaves with pronounced veins

Select the leaf and make sure it is clean and dry. Press the underside of the leaf onto an ink pad, pressing gently with your fingertips to ink all areas. Lift the leave and check that it is completely covered, repeat if necessary.

Press the inked side of the leaf onto the card with your fingertips, pressing gently. Pressing too hard may cause the leaf or stem to smear the image.

Lift the leaf. Use watercolor paint to fill in the leaf. Mix green with blue and yellow for interest. Let the ink and paint dry!!!

In the spring I would send a card to some of my gardening friends with a package of flower or herb seeds and just write...."Happy Spring" on the inside!! It was a fun thing to do!
