Plant, Grow, Bloom Card

Plant, Grow, Bloom Card

I LOVE old clawfoot tubs and what’s better than an old tub lost somewhere in a lush garden of flowers? I love the way the sentiment blends with the cracks in the tub’s side. This is just a lovely soft card.

Additional Supplies

  • Card Stock – White – Neenah 110 lb
  • Cover Stock – Natural White – Neenah 80 lb
  • Paper Trimmer
  • Watercolor Pencil – Blue
  • Water Brush
  • Glitter Glue – Disco Ball

Instructions

First, we will cut our card stock for stamping and our card base. Laying the white card stock horizontally on the trimmer, cut it at 5 1/2″. Now you have two, 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ pieces of card stock. Laying the card stock horizontally on the trimmer, cut it at 4 1/4″. Do the same to the other piece. Now you have four, A2 size (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″) pieces for stamping. Okay, now for the card base, laying the off-white card stock horizontally on the trimmer, cut it at 5 1/2″. Place one of these horizontally on the Scor-pal and score down the middle (look for the asterisk). Do the same to the other piece. Now you have two, 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ (A2) card bases!

Apply unmounted Bathtub to mounting block and ink with gray ink. Remove ink from the bathtub cracks. Stamp in the center of the white card stock. Apply sentiment stamp and gray ink and stamp in the bathtub.

Stamp Mini Flower in lavender, pink, and blue. Stamp the Mini Leaf in green. Stamp the Tiny Leaf in light green. Stamp the Spring in gray. Stamp the Tiny Dragonfly in gray.

Color in the ground under the tub with a water brush and green ink. Tap glitter glue over the flowers.
