Magnolias and Wren Card
by Sara Cook

Hi everyone!  There is a NEW RELEASE and it is AMAZING!  Can't say it's my favorite but all the product is so beautiful that it's a rememberable one.  I have a card featuring the Backyard Wren die and Magnolia Rub On Transfer sheets that have matching dies and a 3D embossing folder.  Easy way to add beautiful flowers with all the depth but not the work.  



Cut out the flowers from the sheet (leave the backing on) that have the matching dies from the Marvelous Magnolia 3D Embossing Folder and Dies.  Make sure to leave a boarder. Remove the backing and place the transfer with the image side up.  Use the provided popsicle stick (or a large shaping tool or bone folder) and rub all over the transfer. Slowly peal from one corner, making sure the image transferred to the paper.  If the image is still stuck to then put back the transfer and rub some more.  Die cut using the matching dies from the Marvelous Magnolia.  Adhere the die cuts into the 3D embossing folder and run through your die cut machine.  I didn't line up the dies exactly but used a watercolor marker to color over any white paper that was miss aligned.  



Die Cut the Backyard Wren from white card stock.  I ink blended all pieces using Distress Ink; Spiced Marmalade, Aged Mahogany, and Ground Espresso.  The body base doesn't have any of the Spiced Marmalade.  For the eye I used a black jell roll pen to give a little shine/life into the eye.Adhere the die cuts per the picture on the front.  



Trim the beige paper from Magnolia Grove to 4 x 5 1/4".  Ink blend around the outside edge using Distress Aged Mahogany ink.  Adhere to a white , side folding, A2 sized card using form adhesive.  For the sentiment I used my premade sentiments using the Big and Little Valentines.  This is from a post a few years ago. I stamped the full set using a stamp plate form and taped it to the top.  I sampled on cream color card that was backed w/ double sided adhesive with dark brown ink.  I just put the sheet in the package and cut out sentiments as I need them.  I selected "special delivery" tried it to side and removed the backing of the adhesive and added to the bottom, left corner.









Beautiful card!
