Welcome My Crafty Friends,
Today I am posting another “Forever Friends” card. Last month I posted a card I had made for my dear friend of over 50 years it had bachelor buttons on it well she showed it to a friend where she lives and the friend wanted a couple of cards one of which was just like hers and another one so here it is. I chose to use Susan’s Garden Notes Lilac 2 die set.
Here is how it was created.
Step 1 From green cardstock cut Garden Notes Leafy Branch. Using Nuvo Crystal Drops – Simply White add berries to branch set aside to dry then repeat on back.
Step 2 Form 6″ X 6″ card base from white cardstock.
Step 3 Cut patterned paper 5-3/4″ X 5-3/4″ patterned paper (ModaScrap Fly & Scrap used here). Adhere to card front using Clear Double Sided Adhesive.
Step 4 From black cardstock with Clear Double Sided Adhesive on back cut Forever Friends using A Way With Words dies Forever and Friends. Adhere to card front putting Forever to top left of card and Friends to lower right of card.
Step 5 Cut Garden Notes Ostrich Fern from green cardstock. shade with ink shape by pinching up on fronds. Using Kids Choice Glue on stem area only adhere to center of card.
Step 6 Add berry branch over fern using Kids Choice Glue.
Step 7 Make lilacs using Garden Notes Lilac 2 set. You either cut flowers from white Soft Finish Cardstock and color with alcohol markers, cut from colored cardstock or as I have done colored cardstock first by lightly brushing marker over some areas darker in others then cut which gives variation in color. My lilacs are really much more purple it is the picture. Susan has a video on how to make the lilac on her Facebook page Susan’s Garden Club. You can find it at this LINK. These are built right on your card.
Here is both cards.
I do hope you have enjoyed my card today and will now make your own. For any of the Elizabeth Craft Designs supplies I have used in this project you can just click on icons below and it will take you directly to their site.
