Here’s another sneak peek of the Wood Textures Suite of products. When looking on the internet for pictures of crates, I kept seeing photos of markets with crates overflowing with flowers. That’s where I got the idea for today’s card. I used the Jar of Love bundle to make the flowers and leaves.
Here’s what I made:
Here’s what I did:
Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:
- Soft Sky card stock (CS) cut to 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, then scored in half at 4-1/4″
- Watercolor Paper cut to 5-1/4″ x 4″
- Whisper White CS cut to 5-1/4″ x 4″, for inside
- Wood Textures Designer Series Paper (DSP) cut to 1/2″ strips, for inside
Colored with Aqua Painter and Ink Refills:
- upper 2/3 of Watercolor Paper in Soft Sky ink
- lower 1/3 of Watercolor Paper in Early Espresso ink
Stamped with Wood Words stamp set:
- sentiment in Basic Black ink onto a small scrap of Very Vanilla CS
Stamped with the Jar of Love stamp set:
- smallest flowers in Melon Mambo ink onto Whisper White CS
- largest flowers in Marina Mist ink onto Whisper White CS, stamping off once for the lighter shade
- medium flowers in Wisteria Wonder ink & Elegant Eggplant ink onto Whisper White CS
- longer leaves in Old Olive ink onto Old Olive CS
- smaller leaves in Pear Pizzazz ink onto Pear Pizzazz CS
Die cut using the Wood Crate Framelits:
- 3 crate pieces from assorted Wood Textures DSP, then trimmed away all but the long slatted side
- sentiment with tag die
Die cut using the Everyday Jars Framelits:
- all the flowers and leaves
Used Sponge Daubers:
- darkened edges of Watercolor Paper in Soft Sky and Early Espresso inks
- darkened edges of tag in Crumb Cake ink
Assembled the card:
- flowers and leaves glued onto the crates, sticking through the crate slats and spilling over the top of the crates
- three crates full of flowers adhered to Watercolor Paper with Stampin’ Dimensionals, one over the other
- tied Linen Thread onto the tag, then adhered tag to front crate with Mini Glue Dots
- Watercolor Paper glued to front of card base
- Whisper White CS glued to inside of card base
- 1/2″ DSP strips glued around Whisper White CS inside
