Patterned paper cut to 5-3/4″ X 5-3/4″ die cut square in center.

Burnt Orange cardstock cut 5-1/2″ X 5-1/2″ next smaller square cut in center.  Using clear double sided adhesive attach patterned paper over orange cardstock lining up so it is even all around then adhere to card front using clear double sided adhesive.

Cut 2 pots from cardstock with clear double sided adhesive on back – 1 from gray card stock 1 from white soft finish cardstock. Adhere white on top of gray one.  Using alcohol markers color and shade.  Remove protective backing add couple of dimension squares lower center back.  Bend a little to give curved shape using your fingers then adhere to bottom center of square on card front.

Add buds and flowers using Kids Choice Glue.  Before adding leaves add a little moss to top of pot.

Happy Birthday Friend

Birthday Friend

Welcome to my blog my friends,

Today I am posting a birthday card that I made for a very special friend since grade school which is a very long time trust me hehehe.  Obviously being December 1st I have done a wintery card

Here is how I created my card.

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.

Step 7  Assemble using Kids Choice Glue.

Step 8  To add snow to card I used Designer Dries White Glue with fine tip adding to areas I want to have snow then I sprinkled with Papericious Frosting Powder.

Hoping you have enjoyed this tutorial today and you will make your own card.  This could also be used as a Christmas card by changing the sentiment such as A Way With Words small Merry Christmas.
