This shows the pretty embossing folder from Marianne Designs (DS0910)
Today I have a "Fun" card for you. I used a lot of different products from Joan's Gardens some of you have asked me to design with. This is a 5.5" easel card. First two pieces of card stock were cut 6.75" square then I punched the border around them with the Martha Stewart "Double Loop" border/corner punches. One was placed on the bottom of the card and one behind the design on the top.
The Cheery Lynn Designs " Victorian Picket Fence" (B123) and the "Garden Gate" (B124) were die cut using white card stock. The top "picket" was cut off the center of the fence that was cut the width of the card front, so that that I could just glue the gate right over the fence. These pieces were sponged with Distress Ink (Tea Die). Red, Orange and Yellow flowers were die cut with the Cheery Lynn "Darling Daisies" (A196). I used only the two smaller flowers. A Sizzix "Cherry Blossom Branch" was die cut out for the top of the card. The white flowers were punched using the Martha Stewart "3-hydrangea" punch. A strip of grass was punched out using the Martha Stewart "Grass" punch. Did you notice the cat? It is from the Cheery Lynn "Screen Door w/Ca" die (A2 164) When you order this die, you get a die that cuts the screen door and the cat, plus two pieces of fine mesh for the screen in the screen door. How cute is that! The sentiment and frame are from the JustRite " Signs of Life" stamp set. The embossed panel on the bottom is one of the new Marianne Designs embossing folders. I believe I have listed all the products used. All these pieces were arranged as shown.
Here are pictures of the products you can purchase from Joan's Gardens that I used on this card.
I may be MIA for a few days. My daughter's knee surgery was rescheduled for tomorrow morning. I will be with her at the hospital and will probably be helping her for at least a several days since her oldest daughter is also on crutches.
