Bucket full of Forget Me Nots & Lily of the Valley
Hello my crafty friends,
Great news I am so excited to tell you Susan has a brand new release available at Scrapbook.com and a couple other places it is called Through the Garden Gate and contains Forget Me Nots (which I have used here), Hollyhock, Gardenia, Floribunda Rose, Beeblossom and Sentiment Stamp Set. Another great release for sure.
My card today is a 4-1/2" X 5-3/4" tent fold. Yellow cardstock with a white core was cut 4-1/2" by 11-1/2" scored at 5-3/4". Swiss Dot embossing folder was used to emboss front of card only then sanded to reveal white core of paper.
Using the 3 largest dies from Spellbinders Candlewick Rectangles and white cardstock with Clear Double Sided Adhesive on back a frame was cut. Frame was adhered to front of card.
S6-182 Wooden Bucket was cut twice once from white cardstock and once from gray cardstock both with Clear Double Sided Adhesive on the back. Attach white one on top of gray one. A couple of gray Copic markers were used to color bucket then metallic rubs were rubbed over bucket. The small handle piece was cut 3 times from black cardstock adhered to each other then attached to center of handle. A couple of pop dots were placed in center of the back then attached to card front.
The Forget Me Nots were created by cutting some in Susan's Specialty Paper and some from light blue cardstock using Susan's Through the Garden Gate Forget Me Not S2-340. Copic markers B23, B24 and R20 were used to color the white petals. The tiny center petals were cut from yellow cardstock and the leaves and stems were cut from green cardstock. Black Prills were used in the centers. Susan should have a tutorial on YouTube shortly. I made about 8 stems of them. All shaping of flowers and leaves done using Susan's Deluxe Tool Kit.
Lily of the Valley S4-1085 was created (3 stems of them) flowers cut from Susan's Specialty Paper and leaves and stems from green cardstock. Susan has a tutorial on YouTube which can be found here.
Bouquet was built on card using Kids Choice Glue.
I so hope that this has been an inspiration for you to do your own paper gardening.
Thanks for stopping by and until next time - Happy Crafting!
