For Spring, you can never have too many handmade card ideas with wagons!

I’ve created lots of handmade card ideas with wagons because a wagon is such a relatable design element. From Winter to Fall, from the beach to Spring, there are so many ways a cute wagon can be incorporated into a design. This new Kids Wagon die has loads of details and it’s so easy to put together! Want to see all the inside scoop?

handmade card ideas with wagons are perfect for spring when loaded with cute garden details made with die cuts

Card Base, Frame, Fence, and Clouds

  • Use white cardstock to cut an A2 sized card base and light blue cardstock to cut a 4.50″ x 3.25″ sky background.
  • Attach the light blue sky layer to the card base using double stick tape.
  • Cut the Picket Fence and Slimline Clouds using white cardstock and green cardstock to cut the Grass.
  • Attach the grass section and fence section to the back of the frame using double stick tape.
  • Apply strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and attach it to the to the card base.
  • Attach the trimmed 5.25″ wide cloud section to the top of the frame using double stick tape.

Flower Pots, Flowers and Stems

  • Cut the Tall Terracotta Pots using bright yellow cardstock.
  • Apply a layer of light orange ink shading using a mini applicator.
  • Use darker orange and brown inks and mini applicators to add shading but allow the lighter shade show in the middle of the pot.  Pro Tip:  You can see my video on how to How to Add Dimension to Terracotta Pots if you would like to see how I colored the pots.
  • Use green cardstock to cut the Flower Stems and pink, yellow and purple cardstock to cut the Small Flowers #4.
  • Place the small flowers on the molding pad and push down in the center using a small tipped stylus. 
  • Apply glossy accents to the back of ten flowers and attach them to the green stems.
  • Use glossy accents to attach the tiny white circles to the flower centers.  Pro Tip:  I save all the negative circles from when I cut eyelet dies.  They make the perfect centers for flowers and are way less expensive (free) than buying gems or pearls. 
  • Attach one flower and stem to the back of each of the five flower post using glossy accents and set the remaining stems aside.

  • Assemble the wagon axels and wheel sections together using glossy accents.
  • Attach the axel and wheel sections to the back of the wagon using strips of mounting tape.
  • Apply a strip of mounting tape to the top back portion of the wagon and attach three pots.
  • Attach two additional flower pots to the back of the front row of pots using glossy accents.
  • Apply a wide strip of mounting tape to the back of the wagon and pots and attach to the grass and fence.

Finish the Card

  • Use yellow cardstock to cut the Sun Moon sections and attach together using glossy accents.
  • Trim off the top portion of the sun to fit under the clouds and attach it to the card base using mounting tape.
  • Tuck the remaining flower stems in behind the grass section and attach using glossy accents.
