Picket Fence Seed Packet Card

The Women's Ministry Team at our church is hosting a Garden Tour and luncheon next month and asked me to make something cute with a little seed packet that they could give to everyone as they leave. This is what I came up with. I was inspired by Deneen's adorable card here. I found some inexpensive seed packets at Walmart and redesigned my card around them.
The card is pretty easy to make. I cut three strips of white cardstock in a rectangle shape and cut a point at the top. Then I cut two thin strips of cardstock (after printing the bible verse from my computer) and attached them to the “pickets.” I sponged some chocolate distressing ink around the edges with a sponge dauber. Then I attached the card front to a 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" piece of white cardstock with some pewter brads. After putting the card together, I stamped the flower stems from CTMH’s March Word Puzzle in Garden Green ink and the flower tops in Blush ink. The seed packet are attached inside with repositionable tape.
Now I am off to make 60 more by next week! LOL!


  1. Lisa! These are so cute! Let me know if you want some help making the rest of them...I'll pop on over.

  2. I love this! What a great idea. Thanks for sharing!

  3. This is gorgeous! Love the fence,with scripture!

  4. Very cute and a great idea that I will tuck away for our Women's Ministry. I am always on the look out for ideas. We are hosting a Mother-daughter brunch this year on the theme of Celebrate Life. We are decorating the tables with new baby items that will go to the local Pregnancy Center afterward. I made a card with Sesame Street characters based off a card I saw on Dawn's Stampin Studio. Have a great day!
