The Happy Gardener – Card making

Hi everyone

I hope you all have had a great week.

I have spent this morning in the garden clean things up a bit.  It is still all burnt off after the summer but that will all change with the first rains.

With gardening in mind I thought I would share a little card for a gardener whether it be a friend or a family member.

I did think this stamp could be used to make a nice cover for some packets of seeds or a little gardeners journal as a gift.

I found some paper in my craft stash that had wellies and flower pots on it and thought it would make a nice backdrop for this pretty stamped image. What would have been fun is to have some die cut wellies on the front.  Has anyone seen a pair of wellington boots die???

I have quite a few variations of this card using this stamp made up but I will keep the others for the another day.

I will be back soon with project/s for the Crafty Individuals CAS challenge.  Maybe later today maybe tomorrow.

Thank you to everyone for your lovely comments and kind words on my recent posts.

Take care and have a lovely weekend.

    I agree it would make a super journal cover – something more lasting for such a pretty thing! I haven’t seen any wellie dies but I’ll let you know if I do!

    Hello Florence.
    Love the stamp … adore the backing paper .. and the card is gorgeous! Oh … and … yes. I have not only a name for a wellington boot die but also a link.
    Joanna Sheen does one: http://www.joannasheen.com/craft-supplies/signature-dies-wellington-boots-sd184/
    I buy from her regularly (far too regularly) and always find her service excellent. She’s quick to post too.

    I knew that Spellbinders have Wellington Boot dies and I’ve found them on sale here: https://www.stuff4crafts.com/spellbinders-shapeabilities-in-spire-die-wellies-in032.html?currency=GBP&CAWELAID=120018150000208437&gclid=CP7Fm9qYlc8CFUQz0wodctQJKw
    BUT … I haven’t bought from this company (Stuff 4 Crafts) so cannot give you any feedback on them.

    I’ll check in my dies to make sure that I haven’t got a welligog die in my collection (I lose track of what I’ve got and what I haven’t) … but I’m not sure if I’m getting confused with some ready cut and scored cards I have which are shaped like a wellington boot. (which I’m more than happy to send you a couple of if that would help to add to your gardening creations.

    I’ll come back to you about the wellygog die tomorrow (Saturday) and let you know if I have one.

      Thank you so much Cobs. I will check out the dies. You did make me think about a wellie JS stamp I have although I think it has grass on it but I am sure that would work. I had forgotten all about it. After reading your comment, I looked also at some free templates. There seems to be quite a few on the internet. I think the tread could be made with some fancy edged scissors. Thank you again for sharing the links and for your kind offer. If I get stuck I will give you a shout.
      Hugs Flo xx

        Hello Flo…
        Have checked dies, & sadly I don’t have wellington boots… but I now know why I was convinced that I had … I have some little silver metal charms which are individual wellington boots. I knew I had wellington boots in there somewhere! lol
        So again, the offer stands – if you need a pair of little (silver) metal boots, just give me a shout. ~ Cobs. x

    A very lovely card Flo, and as you said, I think it may be a great card to offer for a friend who loves gardening, or someone beig a gardener even not a friend! 🙂
    My garden is also burnt off after this hot summer… it is really rare in Brittany! xx

    The colours you used look so great with that paper; how high is the chance you have something so fitting… I am of in the garden now the sun is shining here a bit…. Hugs, Gerrina
