This unique class project was from Barbara Ragsdale. Barbara used the Hand-Penned suite for her card. However I used the Bloom Where You’re Planted Suite to create the plentiful plants photo card.
I’m not a plant person. I only have 4 live plants in my home. I like having them, just forget to take care of them. However, I love this whole plant suite and really enjoy creating with it.
BLOOM WHERE YOU’RE PLANTED SUITE
The photo is the star here so I chose to keep the scheme neutral with minimal decoration.
The suite contains stamps, co-ordinating dies, designer series paper and paper lattice. The stamps are distinctive which means you get different opacities in one stamped image. For instance the plants stamped on the inside.
PLENTIFUL PLANTS PHOTO CARD
For the frame I used the designer series paper that comes in the bundle. It is attached to a piece of Gray Granite the same size as the card front to strengthen the frame. A piece of window sheet goes behind the frame.
The hanging planter is cut from Gray Granite cardstock and is hung using a piece of linen thread. Linen thread wraps around the back of the Gray Granite/DSP layer and is trimmed short so it doesn’t show in the window.
The pot and plant in the hanger are die cut from the designer series paper. Dimensionals are placed under the hanger to adhere it to the window.
Similarly dimensionals between the card front and the Gray Granite/DSP layer allow space for the photo to slide in.
Lastly, I stamped 2 potted plants on the inner using Gray Granite, Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen inks. The distinctive stamps create all the shading for you, so amazing!
There are so many occasions for a photo card, wedding pictures, new baby, graduation, Christmas cards. In other words, the design is easy to customise with different designer paper and stamps to suit the photo.
In addition here’s a link to a previous post also using the Plentiful Plants bundle.
I have 2 of the plentiful plants photo cards made and available to purchase in my card shop.
