To enter simply leave a comment on the Elizabeth Craft Designs Challenge post and tell us "What is your favorite flower from the Garden Notes collection?”
Three lucky winners will be selected in a random drawing.
The winners will be announced on Friday, July 14 on the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog.
For this challenge, I chose to use Susan's new Garden Notes Lily 2 die set. This is an Asiatic Lily.
Susan's Lily is very easy to assemble. There are two 3-petal die cuts and the stamen. I have die cut enough to create three lilies. PanPastels was used to shade at the base of each petal before shaping. It isn't shown in the picture, but after adding the PanPastel to the petals, I used a fine tip black marker to add the dots at the base of each petal. The flowers were shaped using using Susan's 4-piece Flower Tool Kit. Glue the two sets of lily petals together, alternating the petals for a full shape.
To create a realistic stamen, use the Elizabeth Craft fine tip scissors and cut each die cut stamen in half. If you don't have the Elizabeth Craft Designs fine tip scissors, I highly recommend them for so many of your crafting needs. Once the stamens are cut in half, add a small dot of glue to the tip on both the front and back and add either fine Flower Soft or Pollen to give a realistic look. Glue the stamen in the center of each flower with Kids Choice Glue.
Here is a close up picture of the finished lily.
Use Susan's Garden Notes Grapevine Wreath die set and die cut two wreaths, using brown card stock. Use a marker to draw lines on each of the twigs for additional dimension. Glue the two wreaths together, off setting slightly. Attach to the center of your card. I used the Oval Grapevine Wreath.
Use the Bird-Day Party Clear Stamp Set and stamp the bird with the birthday hat. Color with markers. Die cut using the matching die set.
Use the Celebrate die set to die cut the sentiment. Attach to the lower right corner, under the wreath.
Attach the Lilies and leaves to the left side of the wreath. Attach the Bird as shown.
Use the Romantic Corner die set and die cut two white small corners. Attach to the card.
