Hi and welcome to my blog!
Today I'm sharing another sweet pea card with a fold that I never used before. It was so much fun to create and I hope you'll like it as much as I do. I was inspired by this card by Jan B. I just changed it up a bit and used the Heartfelt Creations Vase instead of the flower pot.
Instructions: Finished card with the flowers measures 4 1/4 x 6 1/2”. Create two white card bases. For the first one, cut white cardstock 4 1/4 x 11”, score at 3” and 5 1/2”. For the second one, cut white cardstock 4 1/4 x 10 3/4” and score at 5 3/8”. Using the large vase die from the Classic Floral Vase set, place at the bottom of the open large card base and partially die cut up to the 3” score line. The best way to do this is place the card base on the bottom cutting plate so that the end of the plate is at the score line. Using a scissor, cut way the excess card on each side of the base on the score line. Stamp the vase on sheet 12B of the Sweet Pea Paper Collection using archival Deep Purple ink and edge with the same ink. Diecut again from white cardstock, ink the edges and adhere the two together. Diecut the decorative die x2 from white cardstock and adhere together using dries clear adhesive. Fussy cut an oval from white cardstock to fit on the back of the decorative diecut. I’m the worst fussy cutter in the world so don’t judge me lol. Adhere this to the back of the top of the vase. Set all the diecuts aside.
Using dries clear adhesive adhere the second card base to the inside of the first card base upside down so that the fold is at the bottom. Cut gorgeous grape cardstock x2 - 4 x 5 1/8”, x2 - 4 x 2 1/4” and x1 - 4 x 5 1/4” (this one is for the center section when the card is open). Cut white cardstock 3 7/8 x by 5 1/8” stamp the sentiment ‘sending you a hug’ from the Just For You Sentiments Cling Stamp set and stamp a partial image of the Vining Sweet Pea at the bottom using Archival Deep Purple ink. Adhere the white to the purple and adhere to the center inside section. Cut paper from the Sweet Pea Paper Collection, sheet 3B, 2x - 3 7/8 x 5” and 2x – 3 7/8 x 2 1/8”. Ink all the edges with the Deep Purple and adhere these to the gorgeous grape pieces. Adhere the matted layers to the panels of the card base.
Adhere the vase diecuts to the card base. Stamp the ‘You are so thoughtful’ sentiment from the Just For You Sentiments Cling Stamp set on white cardstock using Deep Purple ink, diecut using the Majestic Swirl die, ink the edges and adhere to the card base as shown using three layers of dimensional tape to act as a stop for the easel.
Adhere the dimensional Sweet Pea flowers, the leaves and the fuchsia vining flowers to the decorative die on the vase using hot glue. Adhere a couple of vines on the vase. Adhere the majestic Violet vining flower to the inside and one small Fuchsia flower on the sentiment tag,
Add some awesome sparkle by randomly sponging the diecuts and the designer papers using dries clear adhesive and sprinkle with Crystal Ultrafine Transparent glitter.
You can find all the products I used for this project in the Heartfelt Creations Gallery.
