I, absolutely, love the Garden Greenhouse Bundle! It is one of those bundles that the minute I saw it, I knew I had to have it! Why? Because in my head, I could see all of the different possibilities I could create. So, how did I decide to use it for today’s post? I combined it with another one of my loves, window sheets, to make a Garden Greenhouse Window Card for a “Thank You.”
I am participating in Kylie’s monthly International Blog Highlights Project. The top 10 entries with the highest number of votes will get to go on and participate in an International blog hop at the end of the month. If you would consider taking a moment and voting for my card, I would greatly appreciate it!
The video below provides the instructions and demonstrates how to make the card. Further down in the post, are the measurements, supply list and written instructions. Leave me a comment below and let me know which card you like best!
- Basic White Thick Cardstock
- 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″; scored at 4 1/4″
- Basic White Cardstock
- 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″
- Scrap (greeting)
- Scraps for stamping flower and leaves
- Basic Black
- 3″ x 3″
- Window Sheet 3 1/2″x 3 1/2″
- Scraps of So Saffron, Polished Pink and Fresh Freesia for die cut flowers
- Burnish the fold on the 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ Basic White Thick Cardstock
- Using the Basic White 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ layer, position the detailed die of the greenhouse in the middle and run through the Cut & Emboss machine.
- Remove the die cut greenhouse and set it aside. You will not be using it for this project.
- Place the layer over the front card base and make small tick marks with a pencil around the perimeter of the greenhouse. This will show you the area in which to stamp images on the front of your card.
- Emboss the Basic White layer using the Gingham Embossing Folder.
- Apply Tear & Tape to the edges of the 3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ Tear & Tape.
- Adhere the window sheet to the back of the embossed Basic White layer directly covering the die cut image of the greenhouse.
- Apply a 3″ x 3″ piece of Adhesive Sheet to the back of the 3″ x 3″ Basic Black cardstock, if desired.
- Die cut the detailed image of the greenhouse using the 3″ x 3″ Basic Black cardstock.
- Adhere the black die cut greenhouse to the front of the window sheet. It will fit into the opening of the greenhouse image cut from the Basic White layer. If an Adhesive Sheet wasn’t used, carefully place small dots of glue around the perimeter of the greenhouse.
Stamping and Die Cuts
- Stamp the largest image of leaves on the front of your card base using Soft Succulent. Remember to stay within the “tick marks.”
- Die cut images of flowers using the scraps of Fresh Freesia, Polished Pink and So Saffron cardstock. If preferred, stamp floral images using these colors and then die cut.
- Adhere floral images to the stamped leaves using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- Apply an Artistry Blooms Sequin to the center of each flower.
- Using a “Thank You” from another stamp set, stamp the greeting using Tuxedo Black Momento ink on a scrap of Basic White. Die cut or trim, as desired. (Rectangle Stitched Dies used in image above).
- Stamp the 5-leaf image using Soft Succulent on scrap Basic White Cardstock. Die cut image.
- Stamp 5-leaf image using Soft Succulent to the lower right corner on inside of card.
- Adhere Basic White Embossed layer to front of card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- Using Multipurpose Glue or Glue Dots adhere leaf image to front of card base by the lower right corner of the greenhouse.
- Using Stampin’ Dimensionals, apply greeting to lower right card front.
