Garden Bench

IMG_2222

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.

Hello world!

Hello everyone! My name is Antoinette and I am starting this blog to share paper crafting ideas with anyone who is interested 🙂 I have been paper crafting for about 17 years.

I would like to dedicate this site to my Mom who passed from Breast Cancer and Alzheimer’s in 2014. She was an inspiration in the crafting world and mine.

I would like to inspire card makers and paper crafters everywhere to share their craft. I would love it if every crafter took their cards to hospitals, nursing homes and other care facilities to put a smile on someone’s face. Maybe you know someone who is lonely? Take time out of your day to visit them and share your beautiful creations.

Happy crafting!

Antoinette
