A little Earth Love...

Cosmo's new Earth Love line is just adorable!! I am a huge sucker for little bugs... especially snails, so this is just so ME, I love it :)





Supplies:
Cardstock: Bazzill Basics
Patterned Paper: Cosmo Cricket (Earth Love)
Chipboard: Cosmo Cricket (Earth Love)
Ribbon: Cosmo Cricket (Earth Love)
Pearls: Basic Grey
Ink: Distress Ink (Shabby Shutters)


How to:
1. Machine sew a block of floral patterned paper on to the card base.
2. Next sew a slightly smaller piece of lined patterned paper on to the card.
3. Cut a yet again slightly smaller block of white cardstock out, ink the edges green, and adhere it to the middle of the card.
4. Cut out the "live slow" from the borders paper, and stitch it onto the card.
5. Sew a strip of the scalloped velvet ribbon under the border.
6. Cut out some tiny flowers from the floral patterned paper, and glue them onto the ribbon.
7. Add the chipboard snail, and some pearls to the flower centers and top of the card to finish.
