This clean and simple macrame planters card was fast and easy and is such a pretty card for any occasion.  I have all kinds of ideas running through my head on how to use these dies.  My next card will definitely be with at least one hanging in front of a die cut window.  For this project i used the Rubbernecker Macrame Planters, Leaves and Greenery, Small Flowers #3, Tiny Flower Buds, Nested Rectangle Scallop and Best Friends stamp set.

The Scalloped Card Base

  • Cut a piece of aqua and white cardstock 5.50″ by 4.25″ each. 
  • Use the largest dies in the Nested Rectangle Scallop set to cut out both pieces of cardstock.
    • Line up and center the die on the aqua cardstock and cut out to create the outer frame for the card base.
    • Cut the white cardstock layer using the same large die.
  • Use a 5.50″ strip of aqua cardstock and large die to cut the valance border.
  • Stamp the sentiment on the white scallop layer using Versafine Clair Nocturne ink.
  • Turn the white layer and aqua frame face down and attach the two together using double stick tape.
  • Apply ATG adhesive to the back of the layers and attach to the white card base.
  • Apply a strip of mounting tape to the scalloped valance layer and attach it to the top of the card.

The Macrame Planters, Foliage and Flowers

  • Cut the macrame hangers using cream cardstock and apply Antique Linen ink to each using a mini applicator.
  • Use bright pink, aqua and yellow cardstock to cut the planters.
  • Apply glossy accents to the hangers and attach them to the planters.
  • Cut the Leaves and Greenery set out several times using green cardstock.
  • Tuck the foliage in behind and around the plant hangers and attach using glossy accents. Note:  The Leaves and Greenery set has several different shapes of foliage that are so perfect to work with these macrame planters.
  • Use bright pink, aqua and yellow cardstock to cut the flowers and form them all using a small tipped stylus and molding pad.
  • Arrange and attach the flowers to the foliage using glossy accents.
  • Attach pre made white Nuvo Crystal Drops to the centers of the larger flowers.
  • Finish by attaching the macrame planters to the card base using mounting tape.
