Craft Consortium - Herbarium Card #1

Hi there 💜

Today I'm sharing my latest design team card for Craft Consortium using the Herbarium 12" X 12" paper pad. The papers are beautiful and thick, and some have a glossy accents look to them. The theme of the pad is herbs, so there's plenty of greenery and jars etc, it would be excellent to make a card or project for the gardener or herbalist  in the family. The Herbarium collection also includes stamps and metal embellishments, both of which I have used on my card. I hope you like it.

All the links to the specific Craft Consortium products can be found below, and the link to the general store is here.

Here's What I Did
I trimmed down a piece of the patterned paper to 5½" x 5½" to cover the front of my 5¾" x 5¾" black card blank (the packaging says it's a 6" x 6" card), leaving a slim border around the edge.

 I die cut a white circle and stamped the words 'Love Herbs' on the right side of it, then mounted it onto a fancy circle cut from green glitter card.

Using black ink I stamped the jar and herb image onto colouring card, coloured with Copics and fussy cut them out. Clear lacquer was added to the jar to make it shiny. When everything was dry they were both added to a white die cut circle using foam pads. The circle topper was added flat to the card front.

Using a pokey took I created a hole at the top left and attached one of the metal embellishments using a dark coloured brad. To complete the card I added green and white pearls.

I love the theme you have used on this card. The green circle die matches really well with the papers. Hugs Mrs A.
