Good Morning Everyone! It’s Tina here today for Susan’s Garden Club. My card was inspired by a wonderful couple who treated us like family. They heard about my card making and had seen pictures and were amazed at how lifelike Susan’s flowers dies are. I knew I had to make them a Thank You card for the warmth they showed us. Below you will find easy steps to recreate this card.
Finished card measures 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ Folded
- Cut a background 4″ x 5 1/4″ with patterned paper and adhere to front of card.
- Diecut Stitched Ovals with patterned paper.
- Diecut Fitted Frames 4 – Curvy Ovals with solid paper (this piece will have the Clear Double Sided Adhesive on the back).
- Diecut Garden Notes Canning Jar & Lid using vellum paper. Ink the edges with distress ink. This will help the jar to pop.
- Diecut Garden Notes Aster using Soft Finish Cardstock, PSF119 Pink Peach for the Aster and PSF138 Olive Twist for the stems. Here is a wonderful tutorial from Susan for the assembly.
- Diecut 3 Big Triple Leaf using Soft Finish Cardstock PSF138 Olive Twist. Shape the leaves using Susan’s Garden 4pc All Metal Tool Set.
- Place Step 4 cut canning jar slightly half way on Step 2 Stitched Oval. The canning jar will be half off the bottom of the Stitched Oval. (Refer to the photo of finished card for placement.) Remove adhesive backing from Step 3 Fitted Frames 4 (you are using the frame that has the circles all around). This will hold the canning jar so no other adhesive is needed. Trim the excess off of the jar.
- Using pop ups (foam tape or dots), attach the assembled Oval to the front of the card.
- Gently slide in the Asters from Step 5 into the opening of the canning jar and adhere using glue gun or Beacon Kids Choice glue.
- Layer Step 6 Big Triple Leaf pieces at the top center and sides.
- Stamp sentiment with Clear Stamps General Sentiments on patterned paper. Adhere to the bottom of Oval.
Thank you for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed this easy tutorial. This card can be used for any occasion. Now I am off to mail this card.
