Hi there! It’s Suzanne here today with a card full of love.
There are many ways you could make this card, just by changing the coordinating paper. This design was created for a younger person, but I challenge you to make one for someone in your life by changing up the colours and patterns –– I’d love to see them! Go ahead and share them on the Elizabeth Craft Designs Family Facebook Page!
Hello crafters! The Garden Notes flowers are a perfect decoration for creating cards or frames for a friend. This is Luciana today and I designed a card with a Garden Notes – Cosmos die set .
Here is the step-by-step tutorial:
Step 1: Card base
Use a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock, 12 X 6 , folded in half to make a 6 X 6 card. Using someClear Double-Sided Adhesive Tape, to adhere on the card a square 5 3/4 inches of watercolored White Soft Finish Cardstock.
Step 2: Forsythia
Cut out two sets of the Garden Notes – Forsythia dies, from the White Soft Finish Cardstock. You will need two layers of only one of the two branches of the set. Color all the pieces as showed below. Use the smallest ball tool and the molding pad to add a curly on the inner part of the branches, and on each petal of the flower. Use the Kids choice glue to adhere the two layers of the branch and all the flowers on it.
Step 3: Cosmos
Cut out six sets of the Garden Notes – Cosmos dies, from the White Soft Finish Cardstock (except the stem). Color all the pieces as shown below.
Use the loop tool and the molding pad to add a texture on all the petals. Add a ripple on the paper, using the ball tool. Wrap the pistils with the tweezers Use the Kids choice glue to adhere the two layers of petals and the pieces of the pistils.
Step 4: Leaves
Add the vein to the leaves, using the leaf tool and the leaf pad. And then with the ball tool and the molding pad add more curving details. Use all the several leaves from different Garden Notes Sets.
Step 5: Sentiments
Die cut the word “just” from the Die set – Words 2 – Thinking of You, and the word “happy” from the set A Way With Words, Happy Birthday 3, both in a White Soft Cardstock, and then color them with a brown color.
Use the Garden Notes – Frame It/ Stitched Circles set in the White Soft Cardstock, to create a frame for a your picture.
Step 6: Assemblage
Arrange and adhere the flowers and leaves as shown below.
I hope you have enjoyed this tutorial! Thank you for stopping by. Luciana

Good morning –– Kathy here from the ECraft Design Team! Today I’d like to showcase another of Susan’s releases –– the Fuchsia. I created this on a 6”x 6” card with a 51/2”x 51/2” top layer, with a thin gold foil border behind it.
The Fuchsia is a very interesting and beautiful hanging flower, coming in bold colors, or all soft shades.
They are planted in the Garden Notes ‘Potted’, using Seth Apter’s Chunky Rust embossing powder. (I cut the pot down a bit to better fit on this card). They’re hanging over a window, the Garden Patch.
I knotted 3 pieces of twine and put them through 3 small holes I punched in the pot and secured them behind the 1st layer to make a ‘hanging’ pot.
The words are from the stamp set ‘Little Words Mean A Lot.’
Don’t forget the Ladybug!
I know you’ll love to add these lovely flowers to your collection! Susan gives wonderful tutorials on Susan’s Garden Club Facebook Page on how to sculpt her flowers –– check her out!
