Easy Watering Can Memory Box Card

Hey everyone.  As some of you know, I have issues with "simple cards".Everything I want to make has to have layers, and cutting, and stamps upon stamps upon stamps - or involves days of coloring.  But, every once in a while I come up with a very simple, easy peasy, card to make.  

Like this one - 

Supplies Used:

Memory Box - Watering Can Die (98571)
Memory Box - Primo Label Die (98139)
Memory Box - Woodland Thank You Stamp (B1915)
Prima Flowers - white, yellow, and pink
Double sided tape
Diamond Glaze or liquid glue of your choice
Pop Dots 
Piece of blue, green, and white paper

Step by Step:

1.  If not using a pre-cut/folded card base, cut a piece of white paper 5.5" x 8" and fold in half.

2.  Cut a piece of paper or cardstock - 3 3/4" x 5 1/4".  Apply double sided tape to back and adhere to card front.

3.  Cut the watering can, adhere the handle where you want it, apply some pop dots to the back and adhere to the center of the card front. 

4.  Glue the Prima flowers around the top of the watering can by applying a small dot of Diamond Glaze and then the flower.  Repeat until you get the look you want.  Allow to dry.

5.  Cut Primo Label out of white cardstock (or another label of your choice), stamp sentiment and adhere under the watering can.

Done!!  Easy Peasy.  Now send to someone that deserves a handmade card.
