Garden Club Cards - Christmas and Spring

Last month I shared a card using Spellbinders (affiliate) Hybrid Tea Rose and Tea Pot from Garden Club by Susan Tierney-Cockburn (affiliate) in a different fashion.  (You can find that blog here: Halloween Tea Roses.)  This month, I wanted to share a different way to use two more floral sets from the Garden Club collection by Susan Tierney-Cockburn -- S5-478 Oriental Lily and Wellies and S5-470 Daffodil/Narcissus and Antique Vase with Honey Bee.

I layered the petals from Oriental Lily to create poinsettias for Christmas, adding larger gold glitter sequins to the centers.  Aren't they lovely?

The wellies were cut from Bella Blvd patterned paper and colored slightly with cool grey markers for a bit of contrast.  I lightly stenciled the card base background and assembled the bouquet.  The sentiment is from an older Spellbinders (affiliate) card kit.

For my next card, I die cut several petal layers from yellow card stock (with a darker yellow gingham print on the reverse).  I layered the petals as seen to create a flower that is less dimensional than the intended daffodil. 

This card could easily be mailed in a standard envelope.  For the centers, I flipped the smallest petal layer, utilizing the darker yellow side.  The vase was cut from gray cardstock in my stash and lightly inked with brown ink.  The background was inked with the same stencil as the holiday card above, but I used blue ink for the background of this spring card.  I die cut the bee from white cardstock and colored.  The cardstock sticker sentiment is from Heidi Swapp (and likely rather old).
