My project today is a pretty set of flower pot die cuts and a watering can filled with lots of flowers, foliage and embellished with sweet butterflies. All images are from the new Rubbernecker May die release.  You can see all the individual links below.

Framed flower pot die cuts create such a perfect garden scene card front for any occasion.

Assembling the Frame

I attached pieces of the grass die cuts to the back of each frame section using double stick tape.  I applied mounting tape to the back of the frame and attached it to the white background layer.  I attached mounting tape to the back of the white layer and attached it to the card base.

Coloring Flower Pot Die Cuts

I cut the flower pots using yellow cardstock and the watering can using gray cardstock.  I used the same Distress Inks to color both the pots and watering can-Wild Honey, Rusty Hinge and Vintage Photo.  The yellow cardstock shines through the ink applications on the flower pots to create old looking pots that sit outside all the time.  The same ink applications on the gray watering can creates the appearance of an old rusty galvanized steel can. Using Sofft mini applicators makes it so easy to blend the Distress Inks on the cardstock.  I started with the Wild Honey to lay the lightest rust color on both the pots and can.  Next I added the Rusty Hinge to add depth of the rust color and then finished by adding touches of Vintage Photo to create the appearance of dirt and age.  I promise to add a video showing how I color these images the next time I post projects with them.

Arranging the Flowers

I cut the flowers in four different colors and formed them using my stylus and molding pad. I attached the flowers to the stems using glossy accents.  I arranged and attached the flower stems to the pots and can using glossy accents.  I tucked the pots and can in behind the grass sections and attached to the card base using mounting tape.  I attached a few butterflies in the scene with glossy accents for the finishing touch.

 

Framed flower pot die cuts create such a perfect garden scene card front for gardener's special day.

I love making outdoor garden scenes and these flower pot die cuts are so fun to work with.  I appreciate you coming by and I hope you ave a great week.
