Bird of Paradise & Oriental Lilies

Hello My Crafty Friends!

First of all I want to wish you all a very Happy NewYear!  

It has been a while since I have posted due to working extra and trying to get everything done for Christmas.  Hopefully now I can post on a regular basis.

Susan has a new release with Spellbinders called Painters Garden and today I have used one of the flowers from the collection the Bird of Paradise plus the new embossing folder Bamboo Trellis.  I have paired the Bird of Paradise with Oriental Lilies from Summer Flora Collection and the Berry Branch & Eucalyptus from Autumn Flora Collection.

Card base is 5" X 7" with dark brown mat layer 4-3/4" X 6-3/4".  Light brown cardstock was cut 4-1/2" X 6-1/2" then embossed  using Bamboo Trellis E3D-044.  Attach embossed piece to card front using Clear Double Sided Adhesive.

Bird of Paradise S4-1237 was cut from Susan's Garden Specialty Paper SCS-122 colored with Alcohol Markers (Copic & Olo) and shaped using Susan's Garden Deluxe Tool Kit T021.  Susan has a YouTube video for creating this flower which can be found here.

Using the Lily from the Wellies & Lilies S5-478 die set from Summer Flora  I die cut 3 then colored and shaped.  Susan's video for the lily can be found here.

For the berries on the Berry Branch (from Autumn Flora Release S4-1079) I colored small foam balls  with acrylic paint.  Eucalyptus from same release was cut from green cardstock shaded and shaped.

All was arranged on card front using Kids Choice Glue.

Happy Birthday Stamp was from Garden Favorites Release.

Thanks for stopping by today I so hope that this has been an inspiration to go create your own card.

Until next time - Happy Crafting!


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