I think this card is so appropriate for my mom (and dad) who have a green thumb or two. Blessed with knowledge of starting from scratch. Planting seeds, growing homegrown sprouts in a jar, grinding grains for flour, and canning fruits and veggies to name just a few. These gifts have been instilled in me, shaping the way I am today. I am a little homegrown, a little wild, a bit of a granola-cruncher and I like it.
Oh, did I mention its my moms birthday? Happy Birthday mommy! You did good!
Creating this Card
This is an easy card to make and uses some fun products, and because there isn’t much to color it was quick to create. Herbs and Pottery stamp is long, but because of the spacing of the pots on the right side it was easy to snip apart. I used the right side two pots for the front of the card layers.
Have you seen the new Lattice A2 die? This was used for the main portion of the card and layered onto a purple piece of cardstock. Once I adhered these layers together I used the Basic Stitched Ovals die to cut out the center oval. If you look really close you can see I had fussy-cut out the whole image and placed it on a white oval, but you can just color straight onto paper and use the oval to cut it out. The top layer was popped up.
You can then add the twine and the two pots to the front layers of this card. I added some sweet butterflies and a sentiment for the final pieces and called it good.
…I guess it’s time to go check on my tomato plant and feed my sourdough…cause that is how I roll.
