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!
card is a birthday card for a dear friend. I’ve always found making a man’s
birthday card much more difficult that making one for a woman. This is
especially so when I’d like to use flower dies. So this month’s project is one
that I hope he’ll like; I know that I enjoyed putting it together. Susan’s “Garden
Notes – Feverfew” combined with Suzanne Cannon’s “A Way With Words – Happy
Birthday” are the dies I used to create this card.
it comes together:
1 -Cut a card base 6 ½ X 9 ½ inches folded in half from 100lb Soft Finish card stock.
2 -Cut a pretty piece of paper 5 ½ X 3 ¾ inches as well as a coordinating piece of paper 5 5/8 X 3 7/8 and also a piece of matching metallic paper 6 X 4 ¼ inches. Layer them and adhere with double sided adhesive.
3 – Cut 2 copies of the Happy Birthday die from coordinating papers that have been backed with Double Sided Adhesive. Adhere to the layered card front
4 –Using the Garden Notes Feverfew die, cut the pieces for seven flowers.
5 –Colour leaves and centers using Copic markers.
6 –Shape leaves, petals, and centers using Susan’s toolkit, leaf mat, and molding pad
7 –Adhere flowers to card front using Kid’s Choice glue.
8 –Using a
toothpick, dab glue onto the centers and sprinkle with yellow pollen. Allow to
dry and blow off excess.
Do you like to walk through the rose garden and smell the sweet scent of all the flowers? This is Selma Stevenson today and I have designed a card using all three roses die sets in the Susan’s Garden Club collection.
Susan’s Rose dies make it so easy to create beautiful, realistic roses. This card would be very pretty to give for Mother’s Day, and would be just right for many other occasions.
Spring has finally arrived and soon the air will be filled with the wonderful fragrance of lilacs. We can create realistic lilacs for our cards and other projects using Susan’s Garden Notes Lilac die set. Using the A Way With Words 4-Seasons die set we can complete a perfect Spring card. Here is how this card was created.

Poinsettia flowers always create such beautiful Christmas cards. Hi, this is Selma Stevenson. Today I have designed a card with flowers using Susan’s Garden Notes Poinsettia and Garden Notes Small Poinsettia dies. You don’t see real poinsettia like this, but they are pretty on a card! Here is how the card was created.
The Holidays will be here soon and it is time to work on Christmas cards so we are not so rushed when it is time to mail our greetings out to family and friends. This is Selma today and I want to show you how to create a pretty wreath using Susan’s new Garden Notes Small Poinsettia, the Garden Notes Whitepine Boughs & Pinecone and the new Garden Notes Mistletoe die sets. The other die sets used are the A Way With Words – Noel, Els van de Burgt Studio Entwined Circles and Berry Branch. Here is how to create this card:
Hi Everyone. It’s Tina here again as Guest Designer. If you are like me and use your own cards to give to your family and friends the thought of that card being thrown out in the garbage afterwards is devastating. The following card design can be used later on in a picture frame (or shadow box frame) to be mounted to a wall. You can also use this idea for an easel stand as well.
Hello, Jeanette Horner here, sharing a card made for a dear friend of mine. She will celebrate her birthday on the first day of March. Happy Birthday, Kay! I hope you will enjoy this card as much as I did creating it. Spring is just around the corner. I can almost smell the flowers, can’t you?
