Two Cards with Bright Colors

Cards with bright colors are perfect for all occasions.  I have had so much fun creating these projects with the new Rubbernecker Vases and Shelves set and creating clean and simple designs on bright white backgrounds so the colors would pop.  I’m sharing two cards today that would be perfect to send to family and friends to let them know you are thinking of them during this strange and stressful time in our country.  Who wouldn’t be cheered up to open one of these brightly colored cards!  On the first card I paired the flowers vases with the new Crosshatch Design die and Nested Deckle Rectangle. For the second card I framed the vases using the Nested Scallop with Holes and Nested Rectangles.

Macrame Planters Card and Rubbernecker Sale

March Sale Rubbernecker (002)

This clean and simple macrame planters card was fast and easy and is such a pretty card for any occasion.  I have all kinds of ideas running through my head on how to use these dies.  My next card will definitely be with at least one hanging in front of a die cut window.  For this project i used the Rubbernecker Macrame Planters, Leaves and Greenery, Small Flowers #3, Tiny Flower Buds, Nested Rectangle Scallop and Best Friends stamp set.

This macrame planters card is so pretty and can be used for so many different occasions. Click thru to see how I created the different arrangements.

The Scalloped Card Base

  • Cut a piece of aqua and white cardstock 5.50″ by 4.25″ each. 
  • Use the largest dies in the Nested Rectangle Scallop set to cut out both pieces of cardstock.
    • Line up and center the die on the aqua cardstock and cut out to create the outer frame for the card base.
    • Cut the white cardstock layer using the same large die.
  • Use a 5.50″ strip of aqua cardstock and large die to cut the valance border.
  • Stamp the sentiment on the white scallop layer using Versafine Clair Nocturne ink.
  • Turn the white layer and aqua frame face down and attach the two together using double stick tape.
  • Apply ATG adhesive to the back of the layers and attach to the white card base.
  • Apply a strip of mounting tape to the scalloped valance layer and attach it to the top of the card.

The Macrame Planters, Foliage and Flowers

  • Use bright pink, aqua and yellow cardstock to cut the planters.
  • Apply glossy accents to the hangers and attach them to the planters.
  • Cut the Leaves and Greenery set out several times using green cardstock.
  • Tuck the foliage in behind and around the plant hangers and attach using glossy accents. Note:  The Leaves and Greenery set has several different shapes of foliage that are so perfect to work with these macrame planters.
  • Use bright pink, aqua and yellow cardstock to cut the flowers and form them all using a small tipped stylus and molding pad.
  • Arrange and attach the flowers to the foliage using glossy accents.
  • Attach pre made white Nuvo Crystal Drops to the centers of the larger flowers.
