Crisp Days of the Fall

Hi there
just finished another project
using Nellie  my Ecraft and another Svg cuts file
Called Crisp Days of Fall
i used thicker card for this 250gsm 
some of the scoring was a tad out on thicker card but hey i still got a lantern lol
i found this one  alittle fiddly to make up if im honest 
never the less Nellie did well again and i had fun making it up so all’ well that ends well as they say
i hope you have had a great day

playing with my E craft again

good morning everyone
 i had to have ago at this little project it's from a
Svgcuts cutting file
called Mothers Garden
have you visited Svg cuts  ? its a fantastic site for cutting files

i decided to use the 3d watering can and some flowers that are also included


i used a3 light weight white card stock.. i don't have any 12x12"pre printed scrapbook paper here 
and  i wanted to do some stamping and distressing so all was well...
the stamp i used is from Inkylicious called wild meadow
ink pads are big and juicy  (spice) and tim holtz wild honey and shabby shutter
  and card candi
i used the Collall all purpose glue as that dries very quickly and has a firm bond once dry, along side 3d gel on the flowers
im very surprised it's quite sturdy when assembled... i fiddled about a bit as i had glued the top on  the watering can before i attached the spout and handle not a good idea lol.... 
will know for next time 

i really enjoyed making this little project  and for a first attempt im very pleased how it turned out
its about 6-1/2" high  not a small project at all would make a great gift for anyone into flowers
i have 3 extra flowers cut out so will put together a matching card  tomorrow
didn't Nellie (E craft) do well !
thank you for popping by today
