    Hello crafters! The Garden Notes flowers are a perfect decoration for creating cards or frames for a friend. This is Luciana today and I designed a card with a Garden Notes – Cosmos die set .

    Here is the step-by-step tutorial:

    Step 1: Card base

    Use a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock, 12 X 6 , folded in half to make a 6 X 6 card. Using some Clear Double-Sided Adhesive Tape, to adhere on the card a square 5 3/4 inches of watercolored White Soft Finish Cardstock.

    Step 2: Forsythia

    Cut out two sets of the Garden Notes – Forsythia dies, from the White Soft Finish Cardstock. You will need two layers of only one of the two branches of the set.
    Color all the pieces as showed below.
    Use the smallest ball tool and the molding pad to add a curly on the inner part of the branches, and on each petal of the flower.
    Use the Kids choice glue to adhere the two layers of the branch and all the flowers on it.

    Step 3: Cosmos

    Cut out six sets of the Garden Notes – Cosmos dies, from the White Soft Finish Cardstock (except the stem).
    Color all the pieces as shown below.

    Use the loop tool and the molding pad to add a texture on all the petals.
    Add a ripple on the paper, using the ball tool.
    Wrap the pistils with the tweezers
    Use the Kids choice glue to adhere the two layers of petals and the pieces of the pistils.

    Step 4: Leaves

    Add the vein to the leaves, using the leaf tool and the leaf pad. And then with the ball tool and the molding pad add more curving details. Use all the several leaves from different Garden Notes Sets.

    Step 5: Sentiments

    Die cut the word “just” from the Die set – Words 2 – Thinking of You, and the word “happy” from the set A Way With Words, Happy Birthday 3, both in a White Soft Cardstock, and then color them with a brown color.

    Use the Garden Notes – Frame It/ Stitched Circles set in the White Soft Cardstock, to create a frame for a your picture.

    Step 6: Assemblage

    Arrange and adhere the flowers and leaves as shown below.
