Daisy & Chicory Envelope Card
Hello my crafty friends welcome to my blog.
Today I have an envelope card that I created and decorated with Susan's Garden Note Daisies, Ferns, Chicory (created from Susan's Garden Notes Aster die set) and Jasmine.
Susan did the envelope card a couple of weeks ago on her Garden Club Live found here. Another good video for making the envelope card is by Sam Calcott it can be found on YouTube here.
From white soft finish cardstock created envelope and card base. Used pattern paper to decorate envelope. (An old Close to My Heart Paper used here) I stamped quote in black then used some little blotchy stamps with black ink to decorate inside of my card. Close to My Heart stamp set - A Million Little Things was used.
Created 4 Susan's Garden Notes Daisies, 6 asters (cut from blue cardstock), some Jasmine and ferns - Ladder and Maidenhair. A few small branches were tucked in arrangement.
To create the chicory I cut off the very ends of the asters then with small sharp scissors cut into ends to give them a fringe. The stems from the Forsythia die set were cut from green cardstock and asters added.
Using the smaller 3 dies from Spellbinder Candlewick Rectangles I created place for sentiment. from black cardstock using the two larger dies I cut decorative base for sentiment then from white cardstock cut smallest. Stamped sentiment with black ink using another Close to My Heart stamp set - Australian Thanks which is an old set. Adhered sentiment to black decorative base then using dimensional tape adhered to card front.
Hope this has inspired you to create - have fun!
