When I was growing up, I remember our neighbor lady, Marion, always planted a huge garden full of Gladiolus – or “glads” as she called them. When they bloomed, I would go over to her house, help her cut them, and carry them inside. They were so lovely – large, delicate-looking blooms all on one tall stem. Some of them were even taller than I was!
Today, I’m sharing a card I made using the new Gladiolus die from Susan’s Garden Club collection at Spellbinders which reminds me of Marion and all her larger-than-life gladiolus stems!
I decided to make this gladiolus a soft blueish purple with darker edges on the ruffles of the petals, but glads come in many, many colors.
I still think of Marion whenever I see glads in a garden or a vase. These flowers suited her perfectly.
I hope you like this card and that you have a wonderfully creative day!
