Calla Lilies

Calla Lilies

Welcome my crafty friends,

Today my card features another new release of Susan’s Garden Note – the Calla Lily.  I am really loving this new release of Susan’s but I love all her releases.

Here is how I created my card.

Step 1  From green cardstock cut couple of branches using Garden Notes Hawthorne.  Add berries using Nuvo Crystal Drops set aside to dry then do back side.

Step 2  Form card base 5″ X 7″ from white Soft Finish Cardstock (I like to use the 110# for card base).

Step 3  The oval is a piece I had saved when I used the next to largest  Garden Notes Frame It – Oval ( never through those pieces away).  I used some Distress Oxide Inks to make a background on the oval.  Attach to card front using Clear Double Sided Adhesive.

Step 4  Create 3 lilies cutting from white Soft Finish Cardstock (90#) using Garden Notes Calla Lily.  Cut leaves from green cardstock.  Shape using Susan’s 4 pc. All Metal Tool Kit, Molding Mat and Leaf Mat.  Use Kids Choice Glue to build your flower.  (Susan will be doing a video on how very soon.)

Step 5  Stamp sentiment on card front using black ink.

Step 6  Using Kids Choice Glue adhere Hawthorne branches then add lilies and leaves.

Step 1  Cut 2 (1 with Clear Double Sided Adhesive on back and 1 without adhesive)  Garden Notes Berry Branch from brown cardstock.  Adhere 1 on top of other.  Add berries using Nuvo Crystal Drops Simply White.  Set aside to dry then repeat on the back.

Step 2  Cut 2 Garden Notes Hawthorne from green cardstock and shade.  Using Nuvo Crystal Drops Autmun Red add berries set aide to dry then repeat for back side.  Susan has a good video which can be found here.

Step 3  Form 6″ X 6″ card base. Cut brown cardstock 5-3/4″ X 5-3/4″ using 6th die in Garden Notes Frame It / Stitched Squares cut opening in upper left.  Cut patterned paper to fit opening (ModaScrap Woods used here) adhere to back of opening using Clear Double Sided Adhesive.  Adhere to card front.

Step 4  Cut 2 Garden Notes Galvanized Buckets from white Soft Finish Cardstock that has Clear Double Sided Adhesive on back – adhere together.  Using alcohol markers color and shade.  Add a little pewter Metallic Rub Ons from set 2.  From brown cardstock cut just the center of the handle shade with brown Distress Ink adhere to top of handle.  Add couple pop dots to lower center back of bucket then adhere bucket to card front.  Adhere handle using Kids Choice Glue.

Step 5  Using Garden Notes Whitepine Boughs & Pinecones die set cut a bunch of boughs from green cardstock (I like to cut lots at once as I know I will use them on a project) shade with Distress Ink then pinch up needles to give dimension.  Create 3 small hemlock cones using same set see Susan’s video for this here

Step 6  From black cardstock with Clear Double Sided Adhesive on the back cut 2 each A Way With Words Happy Birthday – Small and Friends using Words 4 – Remember die set.  Adhere duplicates to each other.  Cut s off from friends.  Adhere to card front.
