Thinking of You

March 23, 2024 in Sunny Studio - No Comments

Happy Saturday!

I’m excited to share a card today featuring the Spring Garden Dies paired with elements of the Wonderful Windows Dies to create a gardening bench!

This is an A2 card and I started with the background panel on the card front. I cut a piece of white cardstock 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″, inked it with Lilac and Orchid Simon Says Stamp inks and die-cut it with the Dotted Diamond Portrait Die. I then die-cut the piece again with the largest Stitched Rectangle Die and adhered it to a white card front.


For the lattice, I die-cut a piece of white cardstock using the notebook paper die from the Notebook Photo Corners Dies and then die-cut the center of it using the smallest Stitched Rectangle Die. This created a frame for the lattice. (You could also just cut a piece of white cardstock 3” x 4 1/8” in place of the notebook paper die, but I liked the slightly rounded corners that this die produces.) Next, I cut a piece of white cardstock 3” x 4 1/8” and die-cut it using the Frilly Frames Lattice Die. I then adhered the frame over the lattice and adhered the combined piece to the card front 1/4″ from the top of the lilac background panel. I was able to line the lattice up with the lines of the Dotted Diamond Portrait Die background, but you could also back the lattice with an inked piece of cardstock before adhering it to the card front.

For the drawer portion of the bench, I die-cut a shutter twice from white cardstock using a Wonderful Windows Die, layered them together and adhered them slightly overlapping the bottom of the lattice using foam dimensional tape. I die-cut drawer pulls from silver cardstock using dies also found in the Wonderful Windows Dies. I used a combination of inking and Copic coloring on the Spring Garden die-cuts. I just love the details of these dies and the cute little gardening tools!


To finish, I die-cut a piece of white cardstock using the Brilliant Banner 1 Die, embossed a sentiment from the Watering Can Stamps with white embossing powder and inked it with Memento Lulu Lavender ink.


I hope you enjoyed and thanks for stopping by today!
