Hydrangeas Card

Hello everyone! Today, I have a card tutorial to share with you. It uses the pretty little Borders and Hydrangeas Die, designed by Eileen Hull. I love anything flowers, as I am sure you have already guessed that, being that there is always some sort of flower/flowers on my projects.

To begin, make your card base measuring 5 1/4" X 51/4" from cardstock. Using the Borders and Hydrangeas Die, die cut two of the scalloped borders from patterned paper (there is only one in the photo but, you need two!), 4 big flowers and 3 small flowers from felt, 3 medium flowers and 1 small flower from book print paper. Using the Flowers, Tulip #2 Die, die cut one stem from patterned paper.

Machine stitch around the square patterned paper piece and zig zag stitch along the top of the border strips. Adhere the square piece to card base then, adhere one of the border strips along the bottom edge of card, lining the holes of the scallops with the bottom edge of card.

Now, open the card as adhere the second border strip just like you did the first one. Stamp the sentiment in the lower left corner of the card.

Adhere the stem in the center of the card... it should line up in the middle of the fourth scalloped hole.

Arrange and adhere the flowers as shown in photo (or to your liking), adding a small lace flower and pearl to the center of flowers. 

Using the Movers & Shapers Die - Mini Butterflies Set, die cut one butterfly and adhere to the top left corner of card, adhere small rhinestones in the middle of the butterfly. Wrap a piece of jute string to the bottom portion of card and tie into a bow.... you are now finished and ready to enjoy your hydrangea card!

  2. I love the textures! Plus they really soften the ledger paper which can look so harsh. Nice job!
