I’m a brand new Elizabeth Craft Design Team Member, and I wanted to share this 6”x6” card which I think would be perfect for a Valentine’s Day project!
I’ve used ModaScrap Wood Effects papers for the background and for the small Happy Frames. The Wheelbarrow is a perfect container for the Amaryllis, the Narcissus (Paper Whites) and the Hawthorne Berries (Nuvo Crystal Drops – Red Berry color). Some Spanish Moss and gold metallic card stock tendrils are also added. Don’t forget to add a ‘ladybug’ to one of the leaves!
To ‘sculpt’ the flowers, Susan Tierney Cockburn has wonderful tutorials on her Susan’s Garden Club Facebook Page which are so helpful, and show that making these flowers is very easy, and fun, to do!
I hope you enjoy my project and it entices you to try Paper Gardening! Watch out… it’s addicting!

Hello there everyone, Sanna here today. Welcome to my last tutorial of the year, the last project I’ll be doing as a member of the Die Cut Design Team. It´s been a fabulous two years and I have enjoyed every minute of it. But before I tell you more about that, I´d like to share this card tutorial with you.
