Angela here today with a card for a young woman who is achieving wonderful things these days. With a background created with Ken Oliver’s Color Burst powders and a die from 1168-Bead Strings 1, I’ve put together the perfect place for Susan’s 1637-Garden Notes Cosmos. One of those lovely summer flowers that comes in lots of pretty colours.
Here’s how it came together:
1- Using the Color Burst powders and water on water colour paper, create a background in the colours of your choice.
2- Cut a 5.5 X 5.5 inch square of 90lb Soft Finish cardstock. Using the thicker curved die cut across the cardstock at about 4 inches from the bottom at a slightly downward angle. Save the larger bottom piece and the ribbon. Attach them to the created background using Double sided tape.
3- Cut a piece of coordinating cardstock, 5.75 X 5.75 inches, and use it to mat the background piece.
4-Fasten all of this to a 6X6 inch card base made from 110lb Soft Finish cardstock.
5-Cut flower pieces and leaves for 5 Cosmos. Colour using Copic markers. Use yellow pollen to finish centers as shown in Susan’s Garden Club Face book video.
6-Shape and create the flowers, using the 4 piece tool kit and Kid’s Choice glue.
7-Adhere to card front as shown in photo.
8-Stamp sentiment onto banner and fasten with foam adhesive and there you have it!
