Be the Sunshine

Good Morning.  I have a pretty card designed using Susan's Garden Notes Black-eyed Susan die set.  Also I want to show you how to mail the dimensional cards you create.

This is a 6-inch square card.  

On the bottom of the card, use Susan's Little Words That Mean A Lot Clear stamp set and stamp the sentiment using VersaFine black in.  Clear Emboss.

  Cut a piece of yellow cardstock 5 3/4 inches square.  Use the new Valentine Edges die set and die cut the decorative edge along one end.  Trim the yellow card stock along the top so the die cut edge fits just above the stamped sentiment.  Attach to the front of the white card front.

Use the Abstract Background die set and die cut it using White Soft Finish Cardstock.

Use a piece of glossy card stock to create the background behind the Abstract Background.  Use light blue, yellow, and green Distress Oxide inks to create a background.  Attach the Abstract Background to this piece and trim the edges to have 1/4 inch border around the edges.  Attach to the yellow panel.

Use Susan's new Black eyed Susan die set and die cut enough pieces to create five flowers.  When gluing in the seed head to the center of the flower, be sure to add glue to the back of each die cut seed and attach to the center of the flower to build the cone.  If you add a lot of glue to the center of the flower and add the die cut seeds, it will be very hard to build a cone because the glue will flatten all the small shaped pieces.

Use the Berry Branch die set and die cut one branch.  To add berries, use Nuvo Crystal Dots.  Once the berries are dry, cut the branch a part and add pieces under the arranged flowers.

Use Susan's Garden Notes Ostrich Fern die set and die cut three ferns.

Assemble to flowers over the Abstract Background, as shown.

6 3/8" x 1" x 6 5/16" Clear Box
Something new at Elizabeth Craft Designs are clear boxes which are perfect for mailing dimensional cards. There are two sizes available:  6 3/8 x 1 x 6 5/16 inches OR 4 7/8 x 1 x 6 5/8 inches.  You can order these clear boxes individually or in a pack of 10.  

 I have been using these clear boxes to mail my cards for years.  

The larger clear box is perfect for any of the dimensional 6-inch card created.

To mail the card in the clear box, I cut a 6-inch piece of card stock to place at the back of the card.  On this piece write the mailing information.  Use clear packing tape to seal the end tabs.  If you prefer, you can enclose this box in a padded envelope, but I just mail in the clear box and the card always arrives just perfect.  My post office loves to see me coming in with these clear boxes so they can see the cards I have created!
