Kerria Japonica Blues

Welcome My Fellow Paper Gardeners,

Today I have created a slimline card using Susan's Garden Club / Spellbinders new Spring Flora release Kerria Japonica, Ferns & Ivy as well as the Fall release Foliage & ladybug.

Card base is 4-1/4" X 9-1/4" patterned paper cut 4" X 9" adhered to card front using clear double sided adhesive.  Frames were created by using different size slim rectangle dies together to cut card stock.  Frames adhered to card front us Bearly Art Precision Craft Glue.

Several Kerria Japonica were cut from Susan's Garden Club Specialty Cardstock then colored with Copic Markers.  Susan's Deluxe Tool Kit was used to shape flowers and leaves.  For creating these sweet happy flowers you can watch Susan's YouTube found here.

From Susan's Spring Flora Release I also used Ferns & Ivy set choosing the Maiden Hair Fern and Ivy which were both cut from green cardstock shaded and shaped.  You can watch Susan's YouTube found here.

Old Coffee pot was used for container.  It was created first by cutting shape from Cricut it wasn't exactly as I wanted so I traced around outside onto heavy white cardstock then fussy cut reshaping to my liking then colored with Copic Markers.  It was given some dimension by bending with fingers.  Used clear embossing powder to give an enamel shine.  Adhered to bottom of frame using Bearly Art Precision Glue.

Flowers, ferns, ivy and leaves were added using Bearly Art Precision Glue.

Spellbinders Die Delites Sentiments One Etched Die set was used for Happy Birthday which was cut twice from cardstock with clear double sided adhesive on the back 1 black one white.  Black was adhered to card front first then white was adhered over black offsetting just enough to give it a shadow.

Thanks for stopping by today I hope it has been inspiring and you will create your own card.
