Seasonal Wreath and Delightful Daisies Shaker Card

Heartfelt Creations Seasonal Wreath Delightful Daisies Shaker Card by Kathy Clement Photo 01

My inspiration project for the hop is this 6×6 Shaker Easel Card.  Green is my second favorite color, and it is found in abundance in the Seasonal Wreath Paper Collection.  I’ve combined it with pretty yellow Delightful Daisies, ribbons, charms and a fun shaker window to make a bit of spring home décor.

TIME SAVING TIP # 1 :  Die cut the greenery from the Seasonal Wreath Paper Pad using the matching dies. No need to stamp or color these pretty floral bits when you use this method.  I did spritz them lightly with a little shimmer mist that I had in my stash.

TIME SAVING TIP #2: Always make a few extra flowers, that way you’ll have some in your stash when time is running short.  These pretty yellow daisies were left over from a project I made some time ago.  Store your extra flowers in small plastic bins or sandwich boxes to keep them in tip top condition.

Making the Shaker Frame

Making this shaker frame was so quick and easy that I just have to tell you how I did it.

  • First, choose your 6×6 image from the paper pad.
  • Next, choose a second 6×6 image that has the same size/shape opening in the center.  Trim about 1/4″ from each side of the image.
  • Now die cut the image from the center of the 2nd image using the Cut, Mat, Create Dies. This becomes the frame for your shaker window. Save the center for use in another project.
  • Die cut a plain piece of 6×6 cardstock, and cut the center out of it using the Cut, Mat, Create Die.  Back the frame piece with this to add strength to the frame.
  • Then adhere clear cardstock to the back of the frame using Dries Clear Adhesive.
  • Next, add 3 layers of foam strips to the back of the frame.
  • Finally, place your shaker elements in the center of your chosen 6×6 image.  Line the shaker frame over the top and press in place to seal.

See?  It doesn’t get any easier than that!

Decorate your frame with the cute die cut bees and butterflies from the paper pad.

A Peek Inside

Add a pocket inside your easel card.  This acts as a stopper, but it also gives you room to tuck in some little treats.

Add a card front to a folded piece of cardstock.

Then dress up a sentiment panel with a bit of border strip.  Create a side pocket and tuck in a sunshiny tea bag to turn your card into a lovely gift.

  • This 5.25″ x 7.25″ card folio is like summer sunshine and summer skies.  Create the card base by cutting a piece of 8.5″ x 11″ cream cardstock into two 5.25″ x 8.5″ panels.

  • Then score on the long side at 7.25″ , 7.5″.

Delightful Daisies Peacock Paisley Card Folio:  Designing the Card Cover

I always create my card cover before I attach it to the card base.  This way, it stays clean and pretty.  Here’s how I put these card layers together.

  • Cut a 5″ x 7″ rectangle of the dark teal print from the Peacock Paisley Paper Collection.
  • Mat on a slightly larger piece of white cardstock.
  • Now die cut the largest Eyelet Lace Frame from white cardstock. Center and adhere to the dark teal panel.
  • Next, cut a 4″ x 6″ panel of the yellow daisy print from Peacock Paisley.  Mat on a slightly larger piece of white cardstock.  Back with foam tape. Center and adhere over the Eyelet Lace Frame.
  • Then, cut a 3″ x 5″ rectangle of the paisley print panel.  Mat as before.  Back with foam tape. Center and adhere.
  • Now cut a 5.25″ x 2.5″ panel of the chevron stripe paper.  Mat just the upper and lower edges on white cardstock.  Add foam tape only to the left and right hand sides.  Center over the paisley print and adhere.
  • Die cut the Yellow Daisy/Peacock Feathers tag from the collection using the Luggage and Tags Die.  Back with foam tape.  Adhere to the card front so that the tapered end lines up with the chevron border on the right.
  • Finally, die cut the Ticket Sentiment using the Luggage and Tags Die.  Back with foam tape and adhere to the tag.
Delightful Daisies Peacock Paisley Card Folio: Making the Flowers

I don’t know about you, but I adore daisies.  These Delightful Daisies are so easy to make thanks to the Delightful Daisies Cling Stamp Set, the matching die and the Basic Flower Mold.  Here’s how to make them.

  • First, stamp two sets of daisies onto plain white cardstock using ColorBox Butter Chalk Ink.
  • Heat emboss with clear embossing powder.
  • Use sponge daubers to color the centers with Guacamole Chalk Ink.
  • Add Butter Chalk Ink to the petal edges.
  • Die cut with the Delightful Daisies Die.

  • Now place face down in the Basic Flower Mold.  Spritz lightly with water and run through your die cutting machine.
  • Next, remove the flower layers from the mold and shape with the Flower Shaping Tool Kit.
  • Layer the petals together, then pierce the centers to insert the stamens.
  • Now brush the petals lightly with Scattered Straw Distress Paint.  Dry.
  • To add color and shine, spritz the finished flowers with Perfect Pearls Sunflower Sparkle Mist, or any yellow mica based spray.
  • Set aside to dry.
Delightful Daisies Peacock Paisley Card Folio: Leafy Accents

Heartfelt Creations Delightful Daisies Peacock Paisley Card Folio by Kathy Clement Photo 05

Adding foliage to a flower cluster lends it a realistic and full appearance.  I love the new Leafy Accents Stamps, Dies and Mold.  I had these pretty leaves made in no time flat.  Here’s how.

  • First, stamp all 4 leaf stamps onto plain white card using Guacamole Chalk Ink.
  • Next, heat emboss with Wow Neutral Ultra Shimmer Embossing Glitter or whatever glitter embossing powder you have in your stash.
  • Use sponge daubers to add Lime Pastel and Butter Chalk Ink to the interior of the leaves.
  • Now, die cut with the matching Leafy Accents Die.
  • Next, place the die cut leaves face down in the Leafy Accents Mold.  Spritz lightly with water and run through your die cutting machine.
  • As a finishing touch, I sponged Guacamole Chalk Ink over the embossed veins.

Now all you have to do is arrange your leaves and flowers!  I added a shabby chic seam binding bow and some glitter ribbon to finish my flower cluster.  Then I added two small daisies, a charm and glitter ribbon to the side of my tag.

Delightful Daisies Peacock Paisley Card Folio: A Peek Inside

Inside my card, I created a little flap/pocket combo.

I hand wrote my sentiment on the left hand side of the flap.  Then I added a little tea bag pocket on the right.

I dressed up my pocket with a bold chevron print and a die cut ticket sentiment.  Then I filled it to bursting with all kinds of little goodies.

You’ll find a honey stick to go with the tea bag.  And I scored/folded a row of the little ATC sized panels on the cut apart page to form an accordion folio.  This is held closed with a peacock belly band.

I used the scraps on my work table to create a mini note card and a bookmark, too.

Add a handmade tassel and charm to make the bookmark really special.
