Susan's Garden Jumping Jacks


I always smile when I see Jumping Jacks.  Today I have designed a card using the crepe paper Jumping Jacks I posted yesterday, using Susan's Garden Pansy/Violet dies.   To show off these cute little flowers, I have used Marianne Design dies for the background.  I always love to design using Marianne Design dies and wanted to let you know you can purchase them from  Ellen Hutson, LLC.
 
This is a 6"x6" card.  I embossed a slightly smaller piece of card stock and over it placed two die cut Marianne Design, Anja's Delicate Corners. These corner die cut so the corner is attached to a larger piece of card stock, but I cut around the bottom edge  of the corner (which is embossed so it is easy to cut off) to place it over the embossed background.  Along the bottom of the card I added the die cut Marianne Design, Anja's Edge.  To bring out the purple, I backed the delicate openings with a piece of the purple crepe paper.   For stems for the Jumping Jacks, I used two Impression Obsession grass die cuts.  The grass on this die cut is very tall and works great for flower stems.  The bottom of the grass was tucked down under the  Anja's Edge then the Jumping Jacks attached to the grass with small glue dots.  The leaves were glued under the flowers.   Along the bottom I added a piece of Webster's Pages green trim. 

The following products can be purchased from Ellen Hutson, LLC:

Hi Selma, your card is beautiful, could you tell me if the crepe paper is available in the uk.

With thanks Margaret.

Selma said...

I do not know where you can purchase crepe paper in the UK. I wonder if someone from the UK could answer this question for Margaret.

Your Pansies are lovely and I really like the design you created with the different dies too! The ribbon along the bottom is the perfect embellishment too!
