Sweet Pea Seed Packet Card

Oh, Sweet Pea
Come on and dance with me
Come on, come on, come on and dance with me
Oh, Sweet Pea
Won't you be my girl
Won't you, won't you, won't you be my girl

-Tommy Roe, 1966 Oh Sweet Pea

 

Sweat Peas 003

This pretty card was the 3rd we created in my recent "How Does Your Garden Grow" class. 

I CASED the design from Judy Marshall.  Judy also shared her seed packet templates with me.  Thank you Judy!

We also created a gift box to hold the 3 seed packet cards and envelopes.  The box had to be narrow enough so the cards would fit snugly, but long enough to allow room without squashing the cards, especially since 2 had pop-up flowers.  I found this box pattern created by Paula Goff on SUDSOL.  You can make it any size.  Cut your paper and  score 3" in on all 4 sides.  Cut the 2 middle score lines on the short side for folding.

Pansy Seed Packet Card

This weekend I was in the garden department of my local home improvement store, and I noticed they had flats and flats of pansies for sale.  Spring must have sprung here in southern Colorado even though we had a snow storm Sunday night that left about 2" of snow on the ground! I am ready to get my garden planted, but know I need to wait at least another month before all chances of a freeze are over.  So in the meantime, I will share this pansy card.  This was one of the projects featured at my "How Does Your Garden Grow " seed packet cards class I recently offered.
