Hello friends! Well I think Spring is finally here! I am so happy that we are having warm, sunny weather again. I have missed this desperately.
Today's card was also created for my stamp group. My friend Kim gets together with her sister to make cards and they made a card in this style. I had not tried this technique before so I had to give it a go. I was thrilled with how it turned out.
I used a card base of Basic White Thick cardstock. The piece I used measured 4 1/4 by 11 and I scored it at 5 1/2. On the front half, I cut off strips of 1/2 inch. This gave me 7 "fence boards". I also cut an extra piece so I would have a total of 8 boards. I used a piece of masking paper that I attached to the card base so I could line up the horizontal fence boards. Once I had them all laid out and was happy with the spacing, I added a drop of Tombo multipurpose glue to each board and added the horizontal fence boards. After the glue was dried, I removed the masking paper and my fence was completed.
I used the vine die from the Dainty Delight Bundle to cut out 2 vines from some Soft Succulent cardstock. This cardstock is retiring so I wanted to use it before it was gone. I attached my vines to my fence using Tombo glue. I had to be careful to apply the glue so that it would be where the fence boards were. If the vines stuck between the boards the card would not open properly.
I used the flower die to cut out 2 sets of flowers from some Pale Papaya cardstock. This colour is also retiring. I attached the flowers to the vines using adhesive.
On a small piece of Basic White cardstock, I stamped my sentiment using Evening Evergreen ink. This colour is also retiring. The sentiment is from the Dainty Delight Bundle. I used the Double Oval punch to punch out my sentiment piece. I used the scalloped oval in the Double Oval punch to punch out an oval from some Soft Succulent cardstock. I matted my sentiment onto this and attached it to the card front using dimensionals.
To complete my card, I added three of the Brushed Brass Butterflies. I am very happy to say that these butterflies are carrying over into the new annual catalog.
Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you enjoyed this card. Huge thanks to Kim for bringing this technique to my attention.
Stay well and keep creating!
