Garden Bench

Spring colors will bring a smile to anyone’s face. This Garden Bench card will definitely bring many smiles. The simplicity of the background really allows the Garden Bench and flowers to shine.

I started with a 5 1/2 x 7 1/2 white card base. My mint green card stock is cut to 5 3/8 x 7 3/8. I then ran it thru my machine with a Decorative Tile embossing folder by Cuttlebug. For my white decorative piece, I used a piece of card stock that measured 5 1/4 x 7 1/4. I faintly scored it into thirds to give myself a guideline for the decorative edges. I placed the Italiana Grape Cluster die by Heartfelt Creations on the 1/3 and 2/3 scored lines and die cut the paper. I used the Swiss Dots embossing folder by Cuttlebug to add some texture. I attached a piece of pink lace and then centered them over the mint card stock.

For my decorations, I cut out the Garden Bench, 2 butterflies and my sentiment tag from the Classic Petunia Paper Collection. I die cut the Small Classic Petunias from the dark pink and light green papers out the paper pack. I used the smaller stamen die cut and snipped off1 stalk for each of these small flowers. I accented the hat, butterfly and sentiment tag with white glitter. I finished off the card with 3 pearls down the pink lace. For the inside of the card, I lined it with the mint green card stock.
