Hi friends! Elodie here today and I’m excited to be back to share my second project using the gorgeous Blooming Garden collection by Marisa Job. For my second post, I played with the beautiful floral and panel dies and I made a set of colorful hello cards.
To make the bases of my cards, I used 6×6 patterned papers that I folded in half to get 6×3 cards. I just love that fun size!
Next I cut rectangles in more 6×6 papers and I placed them on the top of my cards to make pretty layers. Time to start die-cutting now!
For my first card, I went with green and I die-cut a pretty floral panel in a green paper using the Heart Flower Box die set. I cut my floral panel in half and adhered it at the bottom of the card. For the title, I used an ephemera piece that I placed at the top of my card. I then die cut a beautiful branch in another green patterned paper with the Swirl Leaf Branch die and I adhered it across the card to underline my title. Finally, I scattered Blooming Garden flowers from the Rose Buds die set on my card and I topped them with stickers and sequins from my stash.
For the second card, I focused on pink and I die-cut a beautiful panel in a dark pink paper using the Swirl Happy Birthday Frame dies. I cut it in half, cut it again to turn it into a frame and placed it on the top of my card. Next I filled my frame with lovely die-cut flowers from the Heart Flower Box die set and I adorned some of them with sequins and glittery enamel dots. I put the final touch to my card with a couple of black sequins and a wood button for the title.
