Dandy Garden Suite

You can find the Dandy Garden Suite on pages 24 -27 on the Jan-June Mini Catalog.  If you haven't, you must look at it.  I'll share my card in a minute.


Today I have a card for the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge.  We have a color challenge using Gorgeous Grape, Seaside Spray, and Rococo Rose.  I love a good challenge and this one was hard for me.  I don't really like these colors together.  The reason for a challenge is to challenge.  Here's my card.

I do like my card.  I used the colors in bits and I like it that way.

I'll guess I'll call these cut outs dandelions.  They are from the Dandy Wishes dies.  I made them the star of the show.  The real star of the show is the Adhesive Sheets that I used! 

The card base is Thick Basic White 4 1/4 x 11.  Score and fold at 5 1/2.  I took a sheet of the Basic White about the same size and added the Adhesive Sheet to the back.  Cut lots of the dandelions.  For this I did not cut the whole stem.  I cut about an inch or two.  Add these pulling off the backing making sure that the border around the outside is covered pretty well.  Remember that the space behind the added layer does not have to look good so don't worry about it.  Trim away the excess that hangs off the side.  You might be able to use some of that along the very edge.  I will admit that I get adhesive from the sheets on my fingers, but using them makes this process so much easier.

The panel is cut from Basic White using the Stitched So Sweetly dies.  Cut a dandelion from each of the colors Gorgeous Grape, Seaside Spray, and Rococo Rose.  Use the adhesive sheets with this as well.  Let me say here that I did cut two of each.  The others are on the inside of the card.

The saying is from the Garden Wishes stamp set.  Stamp in Gorgeous Grape.  Trim the saying with a trimmer and glue to the panel.

Add a bow of the Gorgeous Grape Sheer Ribbon with a glue dot.

Here's the inside of the card.  The saying is from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set stamped in grape.
