Daisy & Chicory Envelope Card

IMG_0245

Hello my crafty friends welcome to my blog.

Today I have an envelope card that I created and decorated with Susan’s Garden Note Daisies, Ferns, Chicory (created from Susan’s Garden Notes Aster die set) and Jasmine.

Susan did the envelope card a couple of weeks ago on her Garden Club Live found here.  Another good video for making the envelope card is by Sam Calcott it can be found on YouTube here.

From white soft finish cardstock created envelope and card base.  Used pattern paper to decorate envelope.  (An old Close to My Heart Paper used here)  I stamped  quote in black then used some little blotchy stamps with black ink to decorate inside of my card.  Close to My Heart stamp set – A Million Little Things was used.

Created 4 Susan’s Garden Notes Daisies, 6 asters (cut from blue cardstock), some Jasmine and ferns – Ladder and Maidenhair.  A few small branches were tucked in arrangement.

To create the chicory I cut off the very ends of the asters then with small sharp scissors cut into ends to give them a fringe.  The stems from the Forsythia die set were cut from green cardstock and asters added.

Using the smaller 3 dies from Spellbinder Candlewick Rectangles I created place for sentiment.  from black cardstock using the two larger dies I cut decorative base for sentiment then from white cardstock cut smallest.  Stamped sentiment with black ink using another Close to My Heart stamp set – Australian Thanks which is an old set.  Adhered sentiment to black decorative base then using dimensional tape adhered to card front.

Hope this has inspired you to create – have fun!

Oh Happy Daisy

Oh Happy Daisy

Hello My Crafty Friends,

Hope you all had a great Mother’s Day at least the best you could under the circumstances.  I am sure it was much different than any other you have celebrated.  Our lives are turned upside down right now I do hope that creating beautiful things has gotten you through so far.

Early fall we will have a brand new release of Susan’s wonderful dies with Spellbinders I can’t wait but until then we are using her old releases which I know are hard to find but there are some out there.

Here is a card I created for you using Susan’s Garden Notes Shasta Daisy and Jasmine along with Suzanne Cannon – A Way With Words – Happy Birthday Small.  The embossing folder is one that came in a magazine several years ago but not sure and there is no brand name on it.

Created a 6″ X 6″ card base from white Soft Finish Cardstock.  Cut green cardstock 5-3/4″ square adhered to card front using Clear Double Sided Adhesive.  White Soft Finish Cardstock was cut 5-1/2″ square then embossed and adhered to card front using Clear Double Sided Adhesive.

Used Susan’s Garden Notes Shasta Daisy to cut 3 daisies from white Soft Finish Cardstock.  Alcohol markers were used to shade center and her tool kit used to shape.  The tiny florets in center were cut from yellow cardstock and shaped.  Kids Choice Glue was used to build flowers and to add pollen to center of daisy when complete.  Leaves were cut from green cardstock then shaded and shaped.

Susan’s Garden Notes Jasmine die set was used to created the purple flowers cutting from white Soft Finish Cardstock the leaves from green and stamens from yellow.  Used purple alcohol marker to color the flowers.  Shape all with Susan’s tool kit and shade & shape leaves.

Berry branches were cut using Susan’s Garden Notes Berry Branch die set cutting from brown cardstock berries added using Nuvo Crystal Drops.

Flowers were adhered to card front using Kids Choice Glue starting with Jasmine leaves going down first.

Suzanne Cannon’s Happy Birthday was cut twice from cardstock with Clear Double Sided Adhesive on back – one from white one from black.  White Happy Birthday was adhered to card front first then black Happy Birthday was offset just a little to give it shadow.

Hope that this has gotten your creative juices flowing and you get creating!
