Good Thursday morning. I have a couple die cut paper flower pots and wreath cards to share with you today using several newly released dies from Rubbernecker Stamps. The first card is showing off the new Rectangle Square Window Stitch and filling it with flower pots and a hanging basket. The hanging basket is from the new Lamp Post with Accessories set. I used the Tall Terracotta Pots and Wide Terracotta Pots and filled them with Small Ivy, Flower Buds and Tiny Flower Buds and embellished with Small Butterflies.
The Window Frame and Grass
- Cut the window frame using aqua cardstock.
- Cut grass sections using green cardstock.
- Apply double stick tape to the lower and middle windows and attach grass sections.
- Apply thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the window frame and attach to the card base.
The Flower Pots and Basket
- Cut the flower pots using yellow cardstock.
- Apply Wild Honey ink to cover the flower pots.
- Apply Rusty Hinge and Vintage Photo ink to shade and create the appearance of terracotta.
- Cut several sections of the small ivy.
- Cut the flowers using yellow and aqua cardstock.
- Apply Wild Honey ink to the yellow flowers using a mini applicator.
- Form the flowers using a small tipped stylus and molding pad.
- Attach the ivy sections to the back of the pots and basket using glossy accents.
- Attach the flowers to the ivy using glossy accents to fill in the arrangements.
- Attach the flower pots and basket to the scene using pieces of mounting tape.
- Attach butterflies in the scene using glossy accents.
- Finish by attaching pre made yellow Nuvo Crystal Drops to the butterflies using glossy accents..
I love this clean and simple card base made using the new Borders #1 die. The wreath was made using Small Ivy and Flower Buds. The wreath base was cut using small dies from the Nested Circle set.
The Decorative Base
- Cut the decorative layer using white card stock. Hint: I use waxed paper between the die and cardstock to keep the layer clean.
- Apply strips of mounting tape to the back of the white layer and attach it to the purple card base.
- Cut a small green circle base for the wreath using two smaller dies from the circle die set.
- Cut several sets of the small ivy using green cardstock.
- Attach the ivy to fill in all the way around the base using glossy accents.
- Cut a couple sets of flower buds using purple cardstock.
- Form the flower buds using a small tipped stylus and molding pad.
- Attach the flowers all the way around the ivy base using glossy accents.
- Attach the wreath to the white card base using glossy accents.
- Finish by attaching a white multi loop bow using glue dots. You can see my multi loop bow tying tutorial here.
