Many times when I create Susan's flowers, I make extra flowers and put them in a box for later use. Today I went through that box and pulled out a bunch of flowers and leaves to make an arrangement in Susan's Garden Notes French Pumpkin.
First I created a background for the arrangement. A variety of Distress Oxide Inks were sponged onto white card stock using reds, browns and orange on the bottom and yellow, green and brown on the top. Once all the inks were added, the piece was sprayed with water to give it a distressed appearance.
The Garden Notes French Pumpkin was die cut and yellow and orange inks were sponged on. It was attached to the bottom of the card using dimensional pads in the center and glue around the edges.
The Garden Notes flowers include: Sunflower, Primrose, Zinnia, and purple buds which were die cuts from the Dahlia die set. The Greenery includes Ladder Fern, Maidenhair Fern, Hawthorne Berries, Leafy Berry Branch, and pieces of the Grapevine wreath. I also used a die cut leafy branch that is not part of the Garden Notes collection.
The berries on the Garden Notes Leafy Berry Branch were created with Nuvo Rippened Pumpkin Crystal Drops with a tiny drop of Nuvo Red Berry Crystal Drops in the center, and Nuvo Autumn Red Crystal Drops on the Berry Branch.
This card can be mailed out in one of the clear acrylic boxes linked below. The products used for this card are also linked below.
