Hello Card

Aug 3, 2011

This card is one I cre­at­ed using the August Main Kit “Siren’s Call” by Cocoa Daisy and the Add On Kits “Calyp­so” and “Mist and Ink”. The win­dow with the flower box was super fun to make so I thought I would tell you how I did it if you want to give it a try.

  • Using Maya Mist I sprayed the chip­board win­dow. Once dry I removed the four panes and placed a piece of pat­terned paper on the back to look like cur­tains.
  • I cov­ered the flower box using pat­terned paper, sand­ed the edges and accent­ed the pol­ka dots with Dia­mond Stick­les.
  • I then cut 4 pieces of 24 gauge wire to about 8″ in length. I thread one end of the wire through a but­ton about 1″ and twist­ed the wire to keep the but­ton in place. I then formed leaves and cre­at­ed a stem by bend­ing and twist­ing the wire. I var­ied the leaves in size as well as the stems to give them dif­fer­ent heights.
  • Using a strong liq­uid adhe­sive I attached the win­dow to the front of the card.
  • Using the same liq­uid adhe­sive I attached the  flow­ers to the win­dow.
  • Using foam squares on the back of the flower box I attached the flower box just below the base of the win­dow.
  • Using Fab­ri-Tac I attached red and white twine bows to three of the flow­ers just to add a bit more col­or.
That’s it. Now you can cre­ate your own cute wired but­ton flow­ers. Oh if you all are start­ing to think about cre­at­ing hol­i­day cards Chris­tine has “Mica” in stock in the Daisy Bou­tique. Mica is awe­some to apply to any hol­i­day card. I love using it.
