With Spring just around the corner we decided to present what we are calling our “Secret Garden” card. The front features a wooden door look with a key hole. We used a Crafters Companion wood grain embossing folder to get the wood grain look and texture. We then used Dovecraft pigment ink in Natural (from the Love from Lizi) & Distress ink to give the wood some color variation. We used tag dies to create the layered elements of the lock. The screw heads were made using copper penny Nuvo Drops (see our How to Make Your Own Embellishments with Nuvo Drops post for more details).
To finish off the front we used a key die from the February Love from Lizi kit to cut silver mirror card (also from the kit). We then used ribbon and a wooden butterfly embellishment from the February Lizi kit. We lightly inked the butterfly with Berry Purple Dovecraft ink (also from the kit) and placed a drop Pink Champaign Nuvo Glitter Drops in the center. Than, we added the antennae on the butterfly using silver vine peel offs from the February as a finishing touch.
On the inside we used some beautiful floral paper from the February Lizi kit. We added grass using colored pencils. We used more Nuvo Crystal Drops to highlight the centers of the flowers. Finally we fussy cut some butterflies from a page of paper from the Lizi kit. For details & easy step by step instructions, please refer to the video:
We hope you’ll try this card for someone special in your life!
