Gardenia Faceted Diamond Card


Hello my crafty friends!

Hope you had a Happy Thanksgiving we sure did.  

Today I have created a card for you that Susan Tierney-Cockburn did on her "Facebook Live" November 17th.  The video for creating card base can be found here

From Spellbinders Susan's Garden Specialty Paper SCS-122 using Spellbinders Susan's Gardenia S4-1190 I cut 1 complete Gardenia and 2 next to largest petals for bud.  Several leaves were cut and colored with Copic Markers.  YouTube video for creating the Gardenia which is found here

From green cardstock I cut 3 Eucalyptus using Spellbinders Susan's Garden Foliage & Ladybug S4-1079 die set then shaded and shaped using Spellbinders Susan's Garden Ultimate Tool Kit T-021.

From gold mirror card and using Spellbinders Susan's Garden Winter Bough & Evergreen Shrubs die set cut 2 of the Winter Bough.  Lay right side down on Leaf Mat and use the Leaf Tool from the Ultimate Tool Kit and draw lines down middle of branches then using Tweezers from Ultimate Tool Kit to bend branches to give  a little dimension.

The center shape where your arrangement goes can be most any shape so I chose Hexagon.  From gold mirror card I cut next to largest hexagon in my die set and pattern paper from the next size down.
Adhere the 2 together using Bearly Art Glue.  Attach to acetate in center opening of card front.

Using Kids Choice Glue build your arrangement starting with the Winter Boughs then Eucalyptus and finishing with Gardenia, bud and leaves.  Don't forget your Ladybug!

Sure hope that this has inspired you to create your own card which can be done for any occasion.

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


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