Hey Everyone! It’s EK, and today I am bringing your a little project featuring two different stamp sets from Susanne Cannon’s A Way with Words collection. One of my hands down favorite dies from this collection is the Love Joy & Peace Christmas Ornament. Despite being a holiday die set, that ornament is so very versatile. I thought I would play around with it today and make a very spring card!
Step One: Die cut the ornament from the Love Joy & Peace Christmas Ornament die set from some craft glitter paper.
Step Two: Rub some purple ink onto a slick surface, spray with water, and smooch with Watercolor Paper. I used Distress Oxides in Milled Lavenders and Seedless Preserves. Dry the paper.
Step Three: Die cut twice the flowers and floral outline from the Wreath & Elements die set. Try to place the outline dies on the darker parts, and the flower base on the lightest.
Step Four: Repeat step two, but rub green inks instead. I used Distress Oxide Pine Needles and Bundled Sage.
Step Five: Due cut the floral stems two times from the green smooched watercolor paper.
Step Six: Repeat step two once more to create the base of the card. I used Distress Oxides in Dusty Concord and Stormy Sky, and managed to get two prints from it. Adhere one of the prints onto an A2 card frame.
Step Seven: Using a liquid adhesive, adhere the ornament onto the background. I used Kids Choice Glue.
Step Eight: Adhere three of the flowers into the ornament letting them over lap.
Step Nine: From the bonus background print, die cut a sentiment from the Love Joy & Peace Christmas Ornament die set. I used the word love.
Step Ten: Adhere the sentiment and final flower onto the card frame.
Step Eleven: Add a few drops of Craft Drops in White around the sentiment. Let dry.
I hope you enjoyed seeing how I created a soft pastel floral spring card using my holiday Love Joy & Peace Christmas Ornament die set. Let us know in the comments below if you use your holiday die sets in the off season. Until then, happy crafting.
