A Floral House-Warming Gift

June 4, 2019

Good Morning! Kathy here.

This project is a bit larger than most of mine, and was done as a new house-warming gift. It’s 9”x9” and I put it in a shadow box frame with glass so the flowers would be protected. 

I used these dies: Maidenhair fern, variegated ivy, Lavender, Berry branch (which became pussy willows), Jasmine, Dahlia, dinner plate Dahlia 2, Wind in the Mist, Black-eyed Susan, Gerbera daisy, galvanized  Bucket (I found a wooden button which fit the handle, and added depth), and the Chrysanthemum. The saying is from the stamp set ‘Little Words Mean A Lot.’

Whew….almost an entire garden in this one card!

The first thing I did was create a layout-for placement of the flowers.

The, I adhered the flowers with Kids Choice Glue on top of Modascrap Wood Effects paper.

Lastly, I placed the arrangement in a shadow box!

These are some of the ‘older’ flowers, but so much fun to make. You can make them any color you’d like for your project. Give them a try! You just might/will become an addict!

Susan always has tutorial videos on ‘The Garden Spot’ for sculpting and coloring. Go there and learn how easy it is!

    A beautiful house warming gift, may I ask what use use on the berry branch, to make the pussy willows, I have been thinking about that sweet little flower, since I live in SWFL, we don’t see any of the beautiful spring flowers? I must use my collection of die to make an arrangement like that. Did you make your shadow box too? I am a member of ECD Family. I don’t have a website.
