Purple-Blue Glads

Spellbinders | Susan's Garden Club | Gladiolus

Hi everyone!

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!

I love to make cards and enjoy trying out new techniques and products. My artistic “style” differs almost daily – it just depends on what I’m making, the look I’m going for, who the intended recipient is, and, well, sometimes just the mood I’m in.
