Hydrangeas In Gray-Thinking Of You


This card features the Hydrangea dies in three colors of card stock...Basic Gray, White, and Smoky Slate. The card base and liner have the pierced design from the Stitched With Whimsey Dies. With some gray paisley Designer Series Paper to anchor the flowers, you will have a pretty card that is suitable for any and all occasions. Here are the dimensions of the paper I used so you can make this card for yourself with your stash of paper and cardstock:

Card base - 8 1/2 x 5 1/2. Score on the long side at 4 1/4. (Basic Gray Card Stock)

Liner - 3 1/2 x 4 5/8 Smoky Slate Card stock. Use the Stitched With Whimsey dies to create a pattern in the card stock on the card face and the liner.

Liner - 2 7/8 x 3 7/8 Basic Gray card stock.

Liner - Paisley Gray Pattern from Well Suited Designer Series Paper - 2 5/8 x 3 5/8

Ribbon- Basic Gray satin 1/4 inch ribbon. Place a strip around the two liners as shown and tape to the back of the card stock.

Banner Die - on Smoky Slate card stock, stamp "Thinking Of You" from the Happy Thoughts stamp set in black ink. Cut out with die from Hydrangeas Dies set and attach on top of ribbon with dimensionals.

Ribbon - White - Tie a small shoelace bow with white ribbon and attach to the floral bouquet base with glue dots.

Cut out one hydrangea (round) die and the stem and leaves from Basic White card stock. Cut additional flowers and glue to the hydrangea flower to make the flower look more 3 D. Do the same with the smaller hydrangea dies in Basic Gray and Smoky Slate. Add additional separate flowers with glue and attach the entire bouquet to the card face with dimensionals.
