Hello Paper Crafters,
This morning on Susan's Garden Club Facebook video, she gave instructions on how to create a concertina pop out card. I loved the card she created and decided to create this style card. You can get her instructions here. Lhttps://www.facebook.com/SusansGardenClub/videos/1939242373126662INK.
To decorate my card, I used the Spellbinders Four Petal Floral 3-D embossing folder for the background on the front of the card. This is a gorgeous embossing folder.
To try and duplicate the flower in the embossing, I used Susan's Camellia die set. It was die cut using Susan's Specialty Card stock. Susan's tool kit was used to shape the flower. This die set did not come with a stamen so I used one from her Celmatis die set. Yellow Pollen was added to the tips of the stamen. I found a picture on the Internet of a pink camellia that I duplicated.
Susan's Bee Blossom die set was used to create four stems of flowers. Behind the Bee Blossom I used Susan's Lemon Verbena die (Victorian Garden Foliage) to die cut 5 branches. OLO markers were used to color them.
On the inside, I used a piece of design paper I found in my stash. The pieces were cut as per Susan's instruction and glued onto the card. A Spellbinders sentiment was used. It was die cut using gold metallic card stock and backed with black cardstock.
