I am sharing more inspiration today for Your Creative Connection. Our global group came together to give you a worldwide connection to creativity.
We hope to inspire you to connect with us as we share papercraft ideas using Stampin’ Up! products. Today’s showcase theme is ‘Fresh from the Garden‘ and today I am using the Grace’s Garden stamp set from our Stampin’ Up! mini catalogue.
I used the Bricks and Mortar Embossing folder to add some texture to the card front and then added a circle window with the flowers on the front to hint at what is inside. It is hard to see but I heat embossed the greeting on the front so hopefully you can see that better with the photo below.
I made a diorama card which means as it open it has depth and dimension so that you can create a sense of perspective.
The gate is from the Garden Gateway Dies which coordinate with the Grace’s Garden set. Isn’t that little kitty the cutest?
The flowers are coloured and die cut with the coordinating Garden Gateway Dies and I added a little of the Smoky Slate Light Blends to the gateposts to add shading.
This is a better illustration on the diorama part and how it adds dimension. What is really clever is that it folds flat to put in an envelope. I sponged the background of the card to mimic the grass and sky.
I hope I have encouraged you to take a second look at this beautiful bundle on page 13 of our mini catalogue.
