Sweet Pea Card

Good afternoon! Today I have a really cute card to share with you using a JustRite Stampers font set and diecuts created with Spellbinders™ die templates to create a pea pod. Check it out! How cute is this? I love this Garden Variety paper from Cosmo Cricket with the little sweet pea and flower pattern on it. After looking at the paper I was inspired to create a little pea pod. I used the Mega Classic Scalloped Ovals Large S5-024 Die# 5 to create the oval shape card.To start creating the pea pod I made oval and circle diecuts using the Wizard™, Mega Ovals Large S5-023 Die #2 and Standard Circles Small S4-114 Die #1 die templates from Spellbinders™. I cut two ovals and three circles.Next I used a paintbrush to curl the top half of one of the ovals.Then on the bottom half of the curled oval I applied E-Z Runner® (31') adhesive and some 3D Foam Squares from SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES By 3L™.I applied 3D Foam Squares from SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES By 3L™ to the peas (circles) to add a little dimension to the pea pod.I also cut/embossed two leaves using the Daisy Heads S4-058 (small leaf) die template and for the stem I used half of a tag made using Fancy Tags S4-235 die template. Then I inked the edges of all the diecuts.Here is a close-up of the finished pea pod on the front of the card.For the sentiment I used the Times New Roman Lowercase Font 25pt and 1-3/8" x 3-1/2” Horizontal Stamper from JustRite Stampers. That is one of the things that I love about JustRite Stampers, you can customize your stamps to fit your cards and create any kind of sentiment you would like. To make sure the sentiment will fit on the diecut I place the die template on top of the block. It looks like a perfect match to me!Here is a close-up of the sentiment. I stamped the sentiment using black ink onto white cardstock, cut/embossed using Mega Ovals Large S5-023 Die# 1 and then I inked the edges with Antique Linen ink. I also cut/embossed a scalloped oval for a mat using Mega Classic Scalloped Ovals Large S5-024 Die# 1. I added 3D foam Square to the back of the sentiment to add some dimension.I used a Copic marker on the ribbon to tone down the white a little.Here is the inside of the card.
