Lily of the Valley Overload

Hello my crafty friends!

My card today was created using a picture I printed off from Facebook, a Lily of the Valley 3D embossing folder and Spellbinders Susan's Garden Lily of the Valley dies (retired).

Card Base is 5" X 7" using 100# white cardstock.  The first mat was from green cardstock cut 4-3/4" X 6-3/4" adhered to card front using Clear Double Sided Adhesive.  Black cardstock 4-1/2" X 6-1/2" was used for embossed layer. I used Lisa Horton's Background Lily of the Valley 3D Embossing Folder LHCEF 190.  This was adhered to card front using Clear Double Sided Adhesive.

 I love Lily of the Valley as you can probably tell.  I loved the vase so I printed 3 copies on photo cardstock.  I fussy cut them out (I actually cut the bottom off in order to make it fit my 5" X 7" card.
I adhered the 3 vases together using Kids Choice Glue.  I then used Ultra Thick Clear Embossing Powder to emboss the vase then put immediately in the freezer for about 15 minutes.  Upon removing from freezer I gently bent the vase making it crack.  I used a brown ink rubbing edges and over the whole front surface then wiping away with a soft cloth to enhance the aged look.  I gently rounded the vase using my fingers I added dimensional tape to center back of vase and Kids Choice Glue around the very edge of both sides and bottom adhere to bottom of card front.

Spellbinders Susan's Garden Lily of the Valley S4-1085 from Spring Flora was cut 4-5 times from Spellbinders Susan's Garden Specialty Paper and shaped using Susan's Deluxe Tool Kit.  Susan has a YouTube video on how to create these sweet flowers you can find it here  Using Kids Choice Glue several leaves were added to the vase then the flower stems were added.  Finally a few more leaves were added to bouquet.

I do hope that I have inspired you to look at different things to use on your cards - think outside the box.  I do hope that you will go create a card.

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


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