Learn an easy way to make a rust look with ink on your die cuts!
Something sets this card apart are those adorable antique looking watering cans. I was having a blast making them and thought I would share how I make a rust look with ink on these little die cuts so you can add this beautiful aging effect to other elements. It’s SO easy and as you can see, this really adds to the vintage vibe on this handmade card.
To make this sweet floral card I used the Rubbernecker Watering Cans, Mini Slimline Rectangle Stitch, Mini Slimline Nested with Stitch, Tiny Flowers #2, Tiny Flower Buds, Slimline Grass, Grass #2, Flower Stems and Kittie Says Spring Time.
Card Base and Frame
- Use white cardstock to cut the 6.00″ x 3.50″ card base and aqua cardstock to cut the Mini Slimline Rectangle Stitch frame.
- Use green cardstock to cut the Slimline Grass.
- Apply double stick tape to the back of the frame section and attach the grass section.
- Apply strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and attach t to the card base.
- Use green cardstock to cut the Grass #2 sections and set aside.
The Cans and Floral Bouquets
In the video below I show how I applied color to the watering cans to make a rust look with ink and how I created the small floral bouquets. I used colorful cardstock to cut the tiny flowers and white cardstock to cut the cans. You will see how I form the flowers using a small tipped stylus and molding pad and how I attach the flowers to the stems as well as how to attach the stems to the watering cans.
I hope you have enjoyed seeing how I made this pretty card. Check out my How to Add Shape to Die Cut Flowers video to see how I created another floral bouquet project on a larger scale.
