Hello everyone, it’s Annette Green here today with my final post of the year for Susan’s Garden Design Team. It’s been a wonderful year working with Susan’s beautiful flower dies as well as many other Elizabeth Craft Designs products. I’ll surely miss it, but look forward to seeing all the new designs from this amazing company and hope to come back to visit as a guest designer in 2017. Today I’ve created a masculine card using Susan’s Carnation die to prove that you can use flowers on cards for men, too.
Hello everybody, Sanna here again with my first post for February. When I first saw the Ribbons 1, Ropes 1, Chains 1 and Jewels 1 die sets I immediately wanted to create with them. They are so very versatile and can be used for so many kinds of projects! I chose to die cut some Clear Double Sided Adhesive with them and then cover those pieces with Silk Microfine Glitter. Boy, does that combination look fantastic!!!

Hello! Mary here with a colorful greeting card featuring Susan Tierney Cockburn’s lilies. The subtle flower-embossed velvet background makes a soft backdrop to the 3D flowers.
Making the Card
1. Cut pink cardstock 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ and fold in half to form a 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″ card base.
2. Cut pink velvet 3-3/4″ x 5-1/4″. Emboss with Bouquet embossing folder. Die cut embossed velvet squares from Garden Patch – 1-1/2-inch & Mini Roses. Also cut black cardstock frame.
3. Adhere black frame only to center of card front. Peel off backing and adhere each velvet embossed square in the same locations as they were cut, but in the black frame.
4. Die cut the following from Garden Notes – Lily: two stems from green cardstock, one set of leaves from green cardstock, and two sets of all the petals from red cardstock. Color and shape as in the video below.
5. Adhere flowers to front of card as shown. I cut off the leaves and across the center of one stem to re-arrange them where I wanted. Adhere bow as shown.
6. Cut four copies of Hello in pink cardstock. Cut one copy in red. Line up and adhere pink copies together to make a thick Hello. Optional: shade red copy. Adhere red copy to top of stack. Adhere Hello to front of card as shown.
