Hello Everyone,  thanks for stopping by today.  Here in Maine we got a little snow a few days ago but then it turned to rain and in my area it is gone – I am really not looking forward to winter it lasts way too long!

My post today uses Susan’s Garden Notes Amaryllis and Potted along with Els van de Burgt’s new Holiday Garlands 1.  Let’s get started.

  1. Cut off white cardstock 6″ X 12″ score at 6″ and fold on score line forming your 6″x 6″ card base.  Ink all edges (Vintage Photo Distress Ink used here).
  2. Cut Patterned paper 6″ X 6″ ink all edges with same ink.  Using Clear Double Sided Adhesive attach to card front.
  3. Cut green cardstock 6″ X 6″.  Cut from outer edges 1/2″ in all around remove center square to reveal a frame.  Use dimensional tape to attach to front of card.
  4. Cut pot from off white cardstock distress the pot (Vintage Photo Distress Ink used here).  using loop tool from Susan’s 4pc. Tool Kit lay pot face down on molding pad and shape pulling loop tool down from top to bottom.   Using a toothpick add some clear quick drying glue such as Kid’s Choice Glue add glue to very outer edges all around  pot and adhere to card front leaving the top opening open.
  5. Make 3 red amaryllis using Susan’s video as a guide.  Video found here.
  6. Using a little clear quick drying glue on back of stems place them in top of pot.  Add flowers to top of stems and fill in at top of pot with extra leaves.
  7. Cut piece of  off white cardstock 2-1/2″ X 6-1/2″ add clear double sided adhesive to one side.  Cut 4 Holiday Garlands remove protective paper and add to green frame on card front.
