Flame Lily Birthday

Flame Lily Birthday

Hello my crafty friends welcome to my blog!

Today I have a card I created using Susan’s new Garden Notes Flame Lily die set.  This is my first attempt will continue to work on them.

Here is how card was created.

Step 1  Create card base from 110# white Soft Finish Cardstock.  Mine is 5-7/8″ square instead of 6″ square as I wanted my embossing folder to work.

Step 2  Cut white Soft Finish Cardstock 5-7/8″ square then emboss.  I trimmed away the top part of embossed piece along curved line.  Although I don’t know the name of my embossing folder or the maker I did look on line and found that Joyful Home and Tatter Lace do make some similar ones.  Using Clear Double Sided Adhesive to attach embossed piece to card front.

Step 3  From 110# white Soft Finish Cardstock cut 3 Garden Notes Flame Lily cut leaves and stamen from green cardstock.  Using alcohol markers in colors of your choice color petals  (I have 2 red and yellow and 1 purple and green) then shape using Garden Notes All Metal 4 pc. Tool Kit.  Susan has how to videos on her Facebook page Susan’s Garden Club.

Step 4  From green cardstock cut set of Garden Notes Ladder Fern.   Shade with Distress Ink and pinch up on fronds to give dimension. I also cut set from fun foam and made my own stamps – cut 3 each and stacked them together.  I used glue as my foam did not have adhesive on back.  Using green ink I stamped a few ferns on upper top left of card front.

Step 5  Build your arrangement starting with ferns adhering with Kids Choice Glue.  Build lilies on card then add leaves.

Step 6  From black glitter paper w/ Clear Double Sided Adhesive on back die cut Suzanne Cannon’s  A Way With Words Small Happy Birthday.  Adhere to upper right of card.

Step 7  Add self adhesive pearls.
