Bunches of Wishes Card

Hello Crafty Friends! It's Laurie here! I am sharing my Bunches of Wishes Card that was published in the March Issue (#242) of the Simply Cards and Papercraft Magazine. I was honoured when Christine Young, owner of Paper Nest Dolls, asked me to create a card to be published using Shovel Gnome from the Gnome Set. There are ten images in the set including:

The Details of My Card

For my card, the Magazine had specified pastel colours with a Spring theme. So, I used The Four Seasons Spring, P13 paper for my card. I coloured my images with my Copic markers to match my paper. 

I love how the circles on the yellow paper match the circles in my design with the different flowers from the set and the sentiment! So many choices for him to think about planting! Lol!

Tip: Place all three circle dies on paper where you want them. Using a Post-it Note secure them to paper to keep position and run through die cutting machine all at the same time.

One thing that is so great about digital stamps is that I was able to add flowers to the wheelbarrow! Since I added tulips in it, I added a die cut tulip boarder behind him that I coloured to match my scene.

The sentiment was printed out on my computer and die cut out. It and the other circles were slid into place using liquid adhesive. 

The birds and butterfly added interest to my scene.

Clear Wink of Stella was added to the wings of the butterfly to add some sparkle.
