Watering Can with Calendula

Watering Can with CalendulaWelcome my crafty friends,

Today I have created another card using Susan’s new Garden Notes Watering Can and Garden Notes Calendula.  If you couldn’t tell I love watering cans the picture in circle is actually part of my collection that I have.

Here is how card was created.

Step 1  Form 6″ X 6″ card base using white 110# Soft Finish Cardstock.

Step 2  Cut white 90# Soft Finish Cardstock 5-3/4″ square.  Using 6th largest die from Garden Notes Frame It – Stitched Circles cut circle in cardstock approximately 1/4″ in from left side and 1/4″ down from top.

Step 3  Choose patterned paper, picture or use inks to make a back ground then cut using 7th largest circle die.  Using Clear Double Sided Adhesive adhere behind opening then adhere to card front.

Step 4  Using black ink stamp sentiment to lower left corner of card.

Step 5  Cut 2 Garden Notes Watering Can from cardstock with Clear Double Sided Adhesive on back – 1 gray 1 white.  Adhere white over gray one.  Using alcohol markers color and shade.  Add silver Metallic Rub Ons to watering can.

Step 6  Cut 3 Garden Notes Calendula from white 90# Soft Finish Cardstock.  Using alcohol markers color and shade.  Using Susan’s 4 pc. All Metal Tool Kit and Molding Mat shape flowers.  Susan has a video on making these flowers you can find it here.   From green cardstock cut several leaves shade with distress ink.  Shape using leaf tool from tool kit along with leaf mat.

Step 7  Cut Garden Notes Ivy Vine from white Soft Finish Cardstock using green alcohol marker to color ivy leaving white around edges then shape.

Step 8  Remove protective paper from back of watering can add a couple pop dots lower center adhere to card front.  Add ivy vine using Kids Choice Glue.  Build flowers to watering can then add leaves.

Step 9  Add pearls upper left edge of circle.

Hope you have enjoyed my tutorial and it has inspired you.
