Hello My Crafty Friends,
Today I have another card for you that I created, my inspiration actually being bouquet of dried hydrangeas that sits on my dresser in an old antique vase. The hydrangeas are ones that grow across the front of my house they are called Bobo. These hydrangeas have been on my dresser since I cut them last fall and one day as I looked at them my inspiration hit me.
Here is how it was created.
Step 1 Card base is 5″ X 7 – I used Tonic Studios Craft Perfect Ivory White Card Blanks. These card blanks are very nice quality also com in white and other sizes.
Step 2 Cut colored cardstock 4-3/4″ X 6-3/4″ using Oval die set ( Susan’s Garden Notes Fitted Frame It used here) choose oval one size smaller than what you want for opening – die cut oval in cardstock keeping it close to top. Cut Ivory cardstock 4-1/2″ X 6-1/2″ Using next size up oval die cut oval adhere ivory on top of colored using Clear Double Sided Adhesive then adhere to card front. From ivory white cardstock with Clear Double Sided Adhesive on back cut 4 corners (ECD Corners 1 used here). Adhere corners to card front.
Step 3 Using Suzanne Cannon – A Way With Words – Family die cut from black cardstock with Clear Double Sided Adhesive on back. Adhere to bottom center of card front.
Step 4 Vase was cut on Cricut from brown cardstock. Cut twice adhere one on top of other using Tonic’s Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive. Use basket weave embossing folder to emboss. Metallic Rub-Ons Kit 2 – Nubian was rubbed over surface of vase to highlight. Dimensional tape was used to mount to card (to make it fit oval bottom of vase was cut off).
Step 5 cut, color and shape and build hydrangeas. Susan’s Garden Club Lacecap Hydrangea die set was used for little flowers but I cut oval shapes to use for base. Adhere at top of vase.
Hope my card gives you an idea and look around for inspiration as I have done.
Thank you for stopping by today and until next time – Happy Crafting!
