Pussy Willows & Daffodils

Daffodils pussy willows

Hello My Crafty Friends,

Hope that everyone is staying safe and healthy.

Today I have a sympathy card I made for a friend – always hard card to make.

My card was created using Susan’s Garden Notes Canning Jar & Lid, Garden Notes Daffodil / Narcissus along with Garden Notes Stitched Frame It- Squares.

Here is how it was created.

Step 1  Card base is 6″ X 6″ white cardstock

Step 2  Create a background piece.  Mine was created using  several colors of Nuvo Embellishment Mousse.

Step 3  Using a coordinating cardstock to cut a frame using Susan’s Garden Notes Stitched Frame It Squares (use two largest together to cut frame).  Using Clear Double Sided Adhesive attach frame over background piece.  Adhere the piece to card front using Clear Double Sided Adhesive.

Step 4  Cut Susan’s Garden Note Canning Jar twice once from white cardstock that has Clear Double Sided Adhesive on back and one from Clear Sticker Paper.  Adhere the clear jar on top of white jar.  Using a Dotted Embossing Folder to give it that milk glass look.  Add dimensional dots to center back adhere to card front leaving jar top opening open.

Step 5  Create 2 or 3 stems of pussy willows there is a short tutorial here on my blog for making them.

Step 6  Cut, color and shape 3 daffodils using Susan’s Garden Notes Daffodil / Narcissus die set.  See Susan’s video here.

Step 7  Add pussy willows to jar using Kids Choice Glue.

Step 8  Add Daffodils and their leaves to jar top using Kids Choice Glue.

Step 9  Stamp your sentiment on white cardstock then die cut with shape that fits sentiment then one size larger to give a mat adhere them together add to card front using dimensional tape.

Easy card that can be used for many different occasions – hope this has been an inspiration for you.

Thanks for stopping by and until next time – Happy Crafting!
