Wheelbarrow full of presents

November 3, 2014

Hello my crafty friends, it’s Raquel Mason here today. When you think of wheelbarrows, you may think of putting flowers in them as most people do, however I decided to fill mine with presents. Think of other holidays and what else could fill a wheelbarrow: pumpkins for Halloween or fall, eggs for Easter and so on. Let me show you how I filled my wheelbarrow.

ECD Wheelbarrow w presents

1.  Cut red cardstock at 5.5 x 8.5 for an A2 sized base card.

2.  Cut brown cardstock at 4 x 5.25 and adhere to front of base card.

3.  Cut wood grain pattern paper at 3.75 x 5 and adhere on top of brown cardstock from
step 2.

4. Cut the following pieces shown above:

Using the Evergreen Pivot Card, die cut 3 presents from pattern paper, 1 bow in green, 1 in brown and 1 in white. Cut the smallest tree using the companion tree die included in the set. I embossed the tree using my embossing sandwich and while the die was still on top I sponged green ink over the open areas of the die.

From green cardstock, die cut 1 Holly Flourish. Sponge with green ink.

Using the Wheelbarrow die, die cut 1 in brown. Use a scrap piece to die cut just the wheel (1) in grey.

5.  Adhere the bows to the presents from step 4.

6.  Adhere the grey wheel to the wheelbarrow from step 4.

7.  Apply Silver border peel-offs around the edges of the card; add corner flourishes to two corners.

8.  Apply red glitter dots to the berries of the Holly Flourish and adhere to top left of card.

9.  Adhere presents & tree behind wheelbarrow so they are sticking up a little bit over the top edge.  Use foam tape to adhere wheelbarrow to card.

10.  Die cut 1 Lorna Label from brown cardstock and adhere to inside of card.

11.  Apply Season’s Greetings Peel-Off sticker & corner flourish to the Lorna Label.  Use above photo for placement.

I hope you have enjoyed my tutorial and feel inspired to try it out yourself.

Happy Crafting,
