Hello My Crafty Friends,
Well the day is finally here for new release of Susan’s Notes dies at Elizabeth Craft Designs and my card today and I am so excited to share with you my card using 2 of the new ones the Watering Can and the Lupine. Was so excited over the watering can as I love the old ones and collect them.
Here is how I created my card.
Step 1 Create 5″ X 7″ card base from 110# white Soft Finish Cardstock. Cut 85# white Soft Finish Cardstock 5″ X 7″ using next to largest Garden Notes Frame It – Stitched Oval cut oval in center. Emboss Add either patterned paper or a background you have made to card front using Clear Double Sided Adhesive making sure it is larger than the oval. Adhere piece with oval cut out to card front.
Step 2 From white Soft Finish Cardstock which has Clear Double Sided Adhesive on back cut 2 Garden Notes Watering Cans. Adhere 1 on top of the other. Using alcohol markers color can then add Metallic Rub Ons. Remove protective paper from back add a couple of pop dots center of the back then adhere to card front leaving top opening open.
Step 3 Using new Garden Notes Lupines cut 3 Lupines from white Soft Finish Cardstock or if you don’t like to color use color cardstock of your choice. If cut from white cardstock color with alcohol markers shape using Susan’s Garden Notes Tool Kit. Use Kids Choice Glue to build your flowers.
Step 4 Die cut 3-4 branches of Garden Notes Forsythia from white Soft Finish Cardstock to color with alcohol markers or from colored cardstock. Again if cut from white cardstock color using alcohol markers, shape with Susan’s Tool Kit and build flowers using Kids Choice Glue.
NOTE: For leaves and branches I use colored cardstock otherwise I use white Soft Finish Cardstock and color with Copic Markers.
Step 5 Using black in stamp sentiment on white Soft Finish Cardstock then die cut. Ink edges. Using dimensional tape adhere to card front.
Step 6 Using Kids Choice Glue add your flowers in top of watering can add leaves.
