The colorful Fall flowers are out in full bloom. Today I designed a card using Susan's beautiful Garden Notes Chrysanthemums. Behind the Chrysanthemums are Flourishes from the Flourishes & Branches die set. The Friend sentiment is one of the new Quietfire, A Way With Words, die. The corners were die cut using the Tags & More 1 Lace dies. A few pearls were added to complete the card. Below is a tutorial on how I created the card.
To create the card, start with a 12 x 6 inch piece of card stock. Score the card at 6 inches. With a pencil, lightly mark the front panel, down from the top, at 3 inches on each side. These mark are to help you align the Tags & More 9 Sparkle die.
To make the card look nice when fully opened, you need to die cut both a piece of the design paper you want to back the opening of the Sparkle Tag design, plus another piece of card stock the same size as the card. This is easy to die cut -- just place the ends of this die along the edge of the card stock, tape it down and run it through your die cutting machine. You can use the Elizabeth Craft Double Sided Adhesive between the design paper and card stock, or glue the two piece together.
To die cut the additional die cut design, use a piece of 6x6 inch card stock. Place the card stock inside the card and close the front of the card. Place the Paris Edges die so it will show below the Sparkle die cut. Tape it down. Remove the card stock and die cut it.
Susan's new Garden Note Flowers are medium size and perfect to create tags, small or large cards.
