Birthday Boy Farm

Hi all!  Thanks for stopping by today's post is a card I made for our grandson that just turned 15.  He works on a farm milking cows and haying plus he is raising a pig and meat chickens so I wanted to try and incorporate all these things into a card. The card was made using old Karen Burniston dies that are sold by Elizabeth Craft Designs.  The last time I looked most of these were still available but they are while supplies last.  This was a fun card to make. I am not writing a tutorial on this as Karen has great You Tube videos that are very easy to follow.  Videos can be found here . Until next time - Happy Crafting! Christine  

Sweet Bouquet

Welcome everyone to my blog.  Today my card is on I designed for Susan's Garden Design Team on Elizabeth Craft Designs blog.  Visit Elizabeth Craft Designs blog for a complete tutorial on how to make this card with a list of supplies. Until next time - Happy Crafting! Christine

Days Gone By

Hello everyone, thanks for stopping by my blog today!  Today my card was inspired by the orange Day Lilies that are in bloom right now in Central Maine and a picture that was posted on Facebook by Paul Morin who lives a couple towns north of   me. He posts some nice photos (I did message him and asked permission to use the photo). Let's get to it!  Card base: Cut white cardstock 7" X 10" score at 5" fold on score line to form base which is going to be a tent fold. Cut black cardstock 6-3/4" X 4-3/4" adhere to card front using Clear Double Sided Adhesive. Cut patterned paper 6-1/2" X 4-1/2" (In my case I printed the picture onto cardstock and cut to size) adhere to black cardstock using Clear Double Sided Adhesive. Create 3 lilies using newly released Garden Notes - Day Lily and White Soft Finish Cardstock .  Using PanPastels color petals and stamens.  Lay petals face down on molding mat using large end of loop tool from Susan's Garden
