It's Your Birthday Garden Walk Card. Touches of Ink Blog Hop - November 2023

 Good Evening Everyone,

Today I'm blog hopping with the Touches of Ink ladies. Each month we get together and create projects based around a Suite or a Bundle. I've chosen the garden Walk Suite to create my card today - I just cannot get enough of this set. It's just so lovely!

I made a card a couple of week's ago with some strips of the DSP so I had some nice pieces of scrap handy. I couldn't decided which print to use, so I thought why not use a whole bunch of the designs!


Thick Basic White Card Stock

1pc - 5 7/8" x 8 1/4", scored at 4 1/8"

Basic White Card Stock

1pc - scrap

Wild Wheat Card Stock

1pc - scrap

Shaded Spruce Card Stock

1pc - scrap

Garden Walk DSP

7pc - 1 1/4" x 3 3/4"

1pc - fussy cut flower


Take the Thick Basic White Card stock and fold along the score line to create your card base. 

Add adhesive to the back of all 7 strips of DSP and add them all across the card front a bit higgeldy piggeldy and offset to add some extra interest.

Stamp the sentiment in Shaded Spruce ink and the cut out using the Modern Label Punch - making the sentiment sit towards the right hand side. Also cut out a label shape in Wild Wheat and Shaded Spruce. Layer all three of these together, showing about 1/2" of both colours on the right hand side.

Cut a length of Calypso coral ribbon and wrap it around this label piece below the sentiment and secure with a bit of tape at the back. Tie a bow with another length of ribbon and attach this to the other piece of ribbon with a mini glue dot.

Add this to the card front with dimensionals, slightly off to the right. Place the fussy cut flower to the top left of the sentiment and pop a gold blooming pearl into the centre of it.

I hope you have enjoyed my card today! Please take a moment to continue through the hop for lots more crafty inspiration. Patricia is up next, please go say hello!
