You're So Sweet

Hi everyone thank you for stopping by my blog today.  Today the card is a Wiper Card featuring Susan's Garden Notes Rose 3 .

Spring Bouquet

Hello and thank you for stopping by my blog today! Here in Maine things are starting to bloom my lilac trees are getting ready to burst with color and fragrance like none other.   The lilacs do not show the true color in this picture I tried taking several different pictures in different light but could not get the true color to show. Today I am posting a card which has a bouquet of spring flowers hence the name of the card.  Susan's Garden Notes dies were used for the flowers along with her Pottery Pitcher die.  The finish on the pitcher is a result of a botched cracked glass technique but I decided when all was said and done it looked like a very old pitcher and that I liked the look so I used it. Here is how this  6 X6  tent fold card was done.  Cut White Soft Finish Cardstock 6" X 12" score at 6" fold on score line.  Cut patterned paper ( Through the Lens - Wood used here) at 5-3/4" square then attach to card front using Clear Double Sided Adhesive .
