Framed Magnolia

Hi Everyone today I am posting another card with Susan’s new Garden Notes – Southern Magnolia and Els van de Burgt Stitched and Fitted Square dies.  There are so many ways to get the most out of your dies.  This card can be used for any occasion and would look different just by changing up the color of the paper.

Here is how I made the card:

  1.  From 100# white Soft Finish Cardstock (12″ X 12″) cut in half  giving you 2 pieces 6″ X 12″  save one half for another card.  Score your 6″ X 12″ piece at 6″ and fold forming 6″ X 6″ card base.
  2. Cut a 5-3/4″ square patterned paper (you could also use a solid piece of colored cardstock) adhere to front of card base using Clear Double Sided Adhesive.
  3. Note: For the frames I used Els Square Stitched Frames and Els Square Fitted Frames.  I numbered each die on the back with a sharpie marker starting at the smallest and ending at the largest.  Frame 1:  use #9 Stitched and #8 Fitted  Frame 2: use #7 stitched and #6 fitted Frame 3: use #5 fitted and #4 fitted.  Center the smaller die inside the larger die and using Washi tape or another low tack tape – tape them together on the back side to keep them lined up.  Using white 100# Soft Finish Cardstock cut your frames.  Using Clear Double Sided Adhesive adhere to the front of your card.
  4. Create your magnolia using Susan’s Garden Notes – Southern Magnolia Die Set and Susan’s video (found here) as a guide.  Attach to card center.
  5. Add self stick pearls to corners of each frame.

Hello Everyone!  My post today is a card that I made for a friend who lost her Dad.  I used one of Susan’s  new releases Garden Notes – Southern Magnolia along with Els  van de Burgt’s Stitched and Fitted Squares and A With Words – Thinking of You dies.

Here is how I made the card.

  1.  Cut 6′ X 12″ piece from 100# Soft Finish white cardstock score at 6″ fold forming 6″ X 6″ card base.
  2.   Cut B&T paper (printed paper) 5-3/4″ X 5-3/4″ adhere to card front using clear double sided adhesive.
  3.   Using the largest stitched frame and second largest fitted frame dies lay them face down on the paper center the smaller frame inside the large frame tape together using washi tape or removable tape run through die machine cutting out frame.  framed magnolia 2 Attach to card front.
  4.   Attach clear double sided adhesive to front of black cardstock.  Lay Thinking of You die cutting side down on adhesive side of cardstock run through die cutting machine (you may have to run it through 2-3 times due to the added thickness).  Peel off protective covering and coat with black silk microfine glitter – burnish in with your finger.  Adhere to card front as shown in picture using clear drying glue.
  5.   Make 3 Southern Magnolias using 85# soft finish  cardstock  using Susan’s video as a guide ( I find her videos very helpful).  Attach to lower left corner of frame.
  6.   Cut card stand / easel twice adhere together and emboss using Bark embossing folder.
