What is a flower card

A flower card is a small rectangular card that comes along with the flower arrangement you buy. Most florists write it for you by hand or print it out and give it for free.

Most of the time the messages are quite short with the recipient’s name and sender’s name. 

But, at other times, especially if the person hasn’t seen the recipient for some time and wants to express their full outpouring of emotions, a long card message may be written.

How do I write a nice flower card message

A flower card is easy to write for everyone, though others may find it hard to express themselves because perhaps they really want to impress someone or make it perfect.

Since it is small, your message should ideally be short—about 200 characters or less. The card message should be, as they say, “short and sweet.”

It’s up to you how to write it. It can be formal or informal; serious or light in tone; have well-timed punchlines or humor, a creative font and word placement, and so forth.

In a nutshell, writing a flower card message is directly dependent on you saying what you mean from the heart. The more natural and sincere it is, the better.

We can give you some good examples or formats below, and you can personalize them for more authenticity.

How do I make a DIY flower card?

How do I make a DIY flower card

Here’s a pretty idea: use actual flowers for your flower card too! We’ll teach you how to print designs using natural flowers.

  1. Get a bunch of flowers

All you have to do is get some flowers from your garden or a florist. We recommend choosing those with bold and bright colors because they will be more evident on the paper.

Determine which flowers and their parts you’re going to use for the organic color print. Remove stems, buds, or leaves that you don’t want.

If they are wet, wipe them a bit with a clean cloth. Moist flowers are good enough for this DIY project.

  1. Wrap and fold the watercolor paper over the stems

Get your watercolor or parchment paper, and cover a length of it over the flowers you want to work on.

  1. Hammer them down a watercolor paper

Once done, get a hammer and lightly pound the flower into the paper so its outline and color will transfer onto it.

Afterward, gently peel away the flowers, and swipe the bits and pieces off the card with your hand.

The image of the flower with its colors should be imprinted on the watercolor paper. So your artwork is done!

  1. Trace the flower drawing details (optional)

You may also want to trace the flower art on the watercolor or parchment paper for a more defined outline.

  1. Glue the paper with the flower art on the card’s front

Next, glue the paper with the pressed flower art in front of the greeting card. This makes it look neat and nice.

  1. Write your message

And, finally, write your special message on the card, and you are done. Cross your fingers and hope that it impresses your lucky one!

FAQs about Flower Cards

FAQs about Flower Cards
  1. Can I just buy a flower card online?

To save time and effort, you can definitely buy a flower card in-store or online. If you buy one from either, the design and layout will have been planned out, so there’s no need to think hard about them.

And then, just fill it with a message coming from the heart—but of course, it doesn’t always have to be stone-serious. You can also add drawings, colors, and even stickers you have if you like.

  1. Can I just give someone flowers without any card message?

You can give someone flowers without any message too, but then, you’re missing out. That’s because a personalized card message is one of the joys for someone receiving the flowers.

Without any words, the recipient may wonder, “Why did he or she give me a bouquet or vaseful of flowers?” That is unless you already told them your reason through chat or call.

We’re not saying giving someone flowers without any message at all is wrong. A sincere card message is usually expected with the gift, though.

  1. How big should a flower card be?

There’s no rule that states that a flower card should be a certain size. It can be of any size depending on your preference.

To be specific, the small flower card that the florists usually include with your arrangement measures roughly 2 3/8 to 3 5/8 inches.

You can also go for a bigger (usually 8 x 6 inches), more creative card design, be it an L-shaped, gatefold, frame, window, or other kinds of card.

By the way, miniature or pressed flowers can also be included to sweeten up the floral card for your loved one or friend. 

  1. How long does it take to create a floral card?

Depending on the style and length of the message you want to write, you’ll be done between 2 and 20 minutes. That is if you know what you’re going for and don’t have to surf online for ideas or inspiration.
