Quiet Meadow Thinking of You - Pootlers Swap Card

 Hi Everyone,

Today's card is one that I made as a swap card for a group of my Team Mates in the Pootlers Team. The idea is that everyone makes a batch of cards, all the same, this time using products from the new Annual Catalogue. Then we post them off to everyone else in the group and we get the same amount of 'Happy Mail' back. It gives us inspiration and ideas and often shows off items that we haven't got or thought we wanted. Great fun to take part in. Let me show you how I made my card.


1 piece of thick basic white 5 7/8" x 8 1/4"
1 piece of Hand-Penned dsp 4" x 5 1/2"
1 piece of basic white 3 1/2" x 4 1/2"
Scraps of pale papaya, mango melody and old olive card stock for the flower
2021-2023 In Colour jewels
Meadow dies
Quiet Meadow stamp set
Scalloped Contour dies
Stampin Cut and Emboss machine
Memento black ink
Simply scored
Multipurpose adhesive


On the long side, score the thick basic white at 4 1/8" and fold and burnish to make a card base.

Die cut the largest scalloped die from the dsp and next largest from the basic white card.

Die cut the whole flower from old olive and then just the flower heads from the pale papaya and the flower centre from the mango melody card. Adhere the coloured flower heads over the old olive ones and then add the mango melody centre.

Stamp the sentiment at the top of the white scalloped rectangle and then adhere the flower at an angle below it.  Sprinkle with jewels.

Adhere the white layer to the dsp layer and then add to the card front using dimensionals.

A quick and easy card to put together once you have done the die cutting. I hope that you and my Team Mates will like it.
