Today I created a card using three new die sets in the Garden Notes Collection; Grecian Windflower, Feverfew, and Trevi Urn.
This is a 6 1/2 x 5 inch card.
A piece of white card stock was cut slightly smaller and scored around the edges, then attached to the front of the card.
Use the Little Words That Mean A Lot stamp set and stamp the sentiment in the lower right corner.
Use the Dashing Squares and Fitted Squares die sets to cut a narrow frame, using white card stock. Use the Dotted Scallop Squares to die cut a square slightly larger than the white frame.
A piece of watercolor paper was used for the small square background. Two purple Distress inks were put on the craft mat, sprayed with water, then the watercolor paper tapped into the ink for a marbleized appearance. Dry thoroughly. Die cut a square from this watercolored piece using the Dashing Squares die set - the same size as the die cut frame. Attach the watercolored piece to the back of the frame. Attach the framed piece to the front of the Dotted Scallop Square - Use 6mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive on the back to attach.
Use the Garden Notes Trevi Urn die set and die cut two urns. I used a textured gray card stock then brushed pewter metallic paste over the front to bring out the design. Two urns were glued together for extra dimension. Attach the urn at the bottom left corner.
Use the Garden Notes Grecian Windflower die set and create 6 flowers. Shape the flowers using the Flower Tool Kit. Add a small amount of pollen to the edges of the stamens.
Use the Garden Notes Feverfew die set to create the small white Feverfew flowers.
Use the Leafy Branch and die cut one light green branch. This branch will be cut apart and placed behind the flowers.
Arrange the Leafy Branch, Grecian Windflowers, and Feverfew flowers and leaves in the vase as shown.
Use a gray marker to add color around the base of the Urn.
