Throwback Thursday Spring Farmhouse Card Tutorial
Hello, Friends! Today I’m inviting you into my design process in a special Throwback Thursday Prima Spring Farmhouse Card Tutorial. I thought it would be fun to let you peek over my shoulder as I “free create” this collage style card from scraps of this lovely paper collection. There are no notes and no plan in this video. It’s just me and my paper and a basic vision for where I want to go. Does that sound interesting to you? Then read on!
Spring Farmhouse Beautiful Life Card from Scraps
This 5 1/2″ square box style card is made entirely from scraps. The video tutorial below will take you step by step through my thought process in designing the card. First we build the base from kraft cardstock. Then we use scraps of designer paper to build a background. Next we add fussy cuts and layers to add dimension and depth to the card design. I’m hoping you will find this process to be entertaining and instructive. It will be interesting to hear your thoughts after you watch the video.
Out of Bounds
See this little tag cluster? It’s one of my favorite elements in the card design. It actually extends beyond the card borders. This is something we don’t often think of doing, but the end result can be dynamic. You will see how all these little bits and bobs came together in the video tutorial.
The Bow Cluster
Hello, Raw Silk Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon! This is a new shade of DSS Ribbon for me, and I absolutely love it paired up with this paper collection and these retired Petaloo Magnolia blossoms. These were left over from my time on the Petaloo Design Team.
As an aside, I keep a big old glass cookie jar in my studio where I store loose flowers left over from previous projects. My granddaughters helped me to sort them into color families. This makes it easy for me to find just the right flowers in just the right shade. It also means that I use up all these precious left over bits. How do you store your leftover flowers?
A Peek Inside: Tea Party in a Box!
Love pockets? This card has them in both a standard and an easy-to-make box style. I think you will love seeing how simple it is to make a box pocket this way.
Decorate little treats with bits of paper scraps, ribbons and flowers to create a Tea Party in the Box for the inside of the card. This tea party is serving Ghiradelli chocolate, White Tea, Honey, and Cookies. There’s a bitty honey dipper and vintage demitasse spoon tied up with a bit of ribbon along with a lovely little note card tucked into the pockets.
