Black Eyed Susan Lever Card

I love fun folds!  SVG Cuts makes it easy to create these Lever Cards with your die cutting machine.  I used the template from SVG Cuts Breezy Backyard Lever Kit, opting to cut my base from Black card stock rather than pattern paper.  The Scallop piece on the front and inside Lever Fold piece are cut from Bo Bunny Country Garden 12" x 12" papers, all pieces were cut using the Silhouette Cameo.

On the swing panel, I stamped the Daisy from Our Daily Bread Designs in Black Archival, and colored with STAEDTLER Karat Aquarell Watercolor Pencils, blending with Gamsol.  The Butterflies are from ODBD's Faith Set, stamped in Black Archival on Vanilla card stock, then die cut with the Butterfly Branch Die.  After coloring, I cut the butterflies I wanted to use away from the branch, glued them in place and added some twisted wire for the antennae.

On the inside I added the Mother Theresa quote and bees from ODBD's Simple Things set in Black Archival.  Don't forget that each of the STAEDTLER DT members are giving away 2 Spring Sampler Gift Sets - click here to enter!

Like your flower card. Whenever I think of Black Eyed Susans I always think back to when I use to wonder why they weren't named Browned Eyed Susans since they have no black & do have brown and I forget now why or how they got the name.
