Forget Me Not

Hello My Crafty Friends,

Trying to stay busy during the stay at home and no power days I have created another card.  I leave the sentiment off now until I am ready to use the card something that took me a long time to do.  I tend to make cards that can be used for most any occasion so by leaving the sentiment off until I need a card it is very easy to add sentiment.

Here is how it was created.

Step 1  Created 6" X 6" card base from white cardstock.

Step 2  Cut piece of white cardstock 5-3/4" square  cut circle in upper left corner using Garden Notes Frame It Stitched Circle Dies then embossed using 8-1/2 x 11 honeycomb embossing folder.

Step 3  Background piece was something I took from my stash I had created using Distress Oxide either inks or sprays.  Used a larger circle to cut to fit behind opening.  Used Clear Double Sided Adhesive to attach background circle to back of opening then attaching square to card front.

Step 4  Susan's Garden Notes Watering can was used for container.  Cut 2 of can itself from white cardstock with Clear Double Sided Adhesive on back.  Adhere the 2 together.  Nuvo Crystal Glaze was used with stencil brush pouncing all over let it dry then Distress Oxide Faded Jeans was sponged on to give it that splatter ware look.  Crystal Glaze was then brushed over entire piece then allowed to dry.  Once dry removed protective paper from back added couple dimensional dots lower center attached to lower right of card front.

Step 5  Created a bunch of Garden Notes Forget Me Nots and a couple stems of Garden Notes Feverfew.  Used Kids Choice Glue to adhere flower stems to top of container.

Once again I hope it has been encouraging and inspirational.

Thanks for stopping by and until next time - Happy Crafting!


You only live once but, if you live right once is enough!
