A Crafters Companion "HELLO"

Today I have for you a card I made using the Nature's Garden "Peony" collection
Floral Spray- stamp & die. NG-PEO-STD-FLOS.
Layered Peony- stamp & die NG-PEO-STD-LAYP.
Trellis Frame-  die NG-PEO-MD-TREL.
Flourishing Vines- die NG-PEO-MD-FVINE.
Hello- die NG-PEO-MD-HEI.
Sheena Douglas white stamping card.
Green card stock.
Spectrum Noir Harmony- Grasshopper, Honey pot, Pine Tree, Plum Jam.
Black archival ink.
Hot glue gun, Clear drying glue, 3D foam tape, Double sided tape, Crafting foam A4, Fussy cutting scissors, Ruler, Flower shaping tools and mat, Gemini, Scoreboard, Rock-a-block’s, Glitter, White organza ribbon, Water coloring pen.

#1 Card tent fold base and the green cardstock layer is 6” x 6” / 16cm x 16cm.
#2 The design paper layer, cut 15.3cm x 15.3cm.
#3 The green card stock layer, cut 12cm x 12cm.  
#4 The card front layer, cut from the design paper 11.5cm x 11.5cm.

Taking the green card stock, die cut the frame out x 4, the trellis oval x 1, Hello x 6. For the frame and the sentiment stack and adhere together. Apply clear drying glue to the sentiment and frame top then dip into the glitter. Put aside to dry. From the stamping card stamp, the leaves x2, Small peon x9. Swirls with leaves x3,  the peony cluster x3 and 3 of the flower centers. Taking the matching dies, die cut then bring the colour to the elements. Using the shaping tools bring shape to the flowers, leaves and the swirls. Make the bow. Arrange all the elements in a cluster at the left foot of the card front. Adhere all in place with 3D double sided tape, clear drying glue and the hot glue gun.
Although the peony flowers are a bit large, they are a dream to work with and as you can see they work well to make a pleasing card. Remember I used the smallest size peonies for this card. I shall make something with the two larger peony size's and see how that goes...but for another day.

Wishing you a happy scrappy day,
Sussipoppins inky hugs.
