Blooming Garden Inspiration | Hello Cards with Elodie
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.
