Supplies:

 

Directions:

  1. Make a 5” square top fold card from white and an envelope to fit (I use a WeR Memory keepers punch board for this) using pattern paper and save the scraps for die cutting.
  2. Tape a nesting die onto a piece of white cardstock making sure the tape does not go inside the die window and use a blending brush to apply ink (like a stencil) to the inside of the die. Cut out the shape and set aside. At this time die cut any other items you will want such as a 3” circle from white and leaves and flowers for yellow and green.
  3. Place a piece of plastic canvas over your die cut panels and line up the edges with a row of holes and use a needle to poke a stitched line along the edge. Repeat with all panels.
  4. Stamp a wreath of lemons on the round panel.
  5. Layer elements on your card base but tie a ribbon around the middle panel before adhering.
  6. Embellish with die cut flowers and leaves.

I hope that this gives you some new ideas for old supplies and til next time happy crafting!
