Congratulations Card – Love in a Mist

Hello Friends, Piyanki here with  a new project using some brand new Susan’s Garden dies. The collection is fun , creative and as always immensely intricate to give your flowers the perfect shape and natural look. For today’s post I have chosen the Garden Notes –  “Love in a Mist” (Nigella Damascena) die set. First the name fascinated me and then when I researched a little about the flower, it blooms in the color blue. For a long time I have not created any flower in blue so went for it at once.
Love in a Mist is a common name for “Nigella”. The ferny , fennel like foliage makes it look all the more interesting. With the die set you have the perfect dies for the foliage which will add the natural look once you assemble the flowers. I chose to create my flowers blue for my card, however you can find these flowers in a variety of different colors.

Step 1 : Cut a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock to 8.5″ x 5.5″, score along the long side at 4.25″ to create a  4.25″ x 5.5″ top folding card which will be the base of the card.
Step 2 : Cut another piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock at 4″ x 5.3″ to form the second layer. Use the Stitched Oval die to die cut a section of the card stock.
Step 3 : Cut a piece of Watercolor Paper to 3″ x 5.3″ add color to this panel using  Distress Oxide of your choice.( Iced Pruce , Broken China used on this card) and some Distress Ink ( Squeezed Lemonade , Curved Pumpkin).
Step 4: Keep adding layers of distress ink, splash some water and then heat dry it in between every layer. Once you form the desired shade adhere this layer to the second layer.
Step 5:  To add more depth to the card base die cut several pieces of the smallest dies from Garden Notes Dahlia 2 and adhered it all over the card stock.
Step 6: Using the Love in a Mist die set, die cut enough petals and leaves to create three flowers from White Soft Finish Cardstock.  Color using Zig Markers.
Step 7 : Assemble all the flowers , ferns around the upper portion of the stitched oval.
Step 8: To finish the card add a die cut the sentiment “Congratulations”  3-4 times from a White Soft Finish Cardstock, stack the sentiments together to give a raised effect. Adhere to the lower portion of the oval opening.

Come Fly With Me Layers

Hello Friends, though this post goes late however this is when we are debuting a brand new collection at Heartfelt Collection.

This collection makes you feel young again , some fun coloring , cool cars and lush green pastures. This collection also gives you some free chocolates and definitely the window seat :).


For images of the inside pages see here. The final layered card measures 6” x 6”. Cut designer paper for each side of the page, die cutting the center using the circle die. For each pages I have layered 2 circle borders with coordinating paper. Once all paper are adhered to the base pages, start decorating each page.
Stamp, die cut and color some sunflower accents, filler leaves, dogwood flowers, petunia flowers. I stamped everything in Archival Black ink except the dogwood flowers(Plum & Sunflower Archival), the Leaf from the Simply Classic set (Leaf-Archival ink) and the leaves from the Sunflower Accents set (Plum Archival on patterned paper and edged with Carved Pumpkin Archival ink). Die cut decorative borders, and fussy cut the tags and cards from the tag sheet. Shape the flowers using the deluxe flower shaping kit. Each page is designed and embellished in different style keeping the collection theme in place.
For the last page a small envelope is created to hold all the tags and journaling. Each page is given a base border using the border dies. For the front of the album, 2 circle die cuts are adheres on a foam adhesive and placed on one corner with leaves, tiny flowers tucked in. On the other corner a bunch is created using the sunflower accents and filler flowers.
Arrange as desired, I added Crystal Clear to the flowers with prills in the center.
