Spellbinders May 2021 Club Kits Blog Hop: Vignette Garden Gate Morning Glories
Hello, Friends! Welcome to the Spellbinders May 2021 Club Kits Blog Hop! You should be coming here from Amanda’s lovely blog. Today I’m featuring the Amazing Paper Grace Vignette Garden Gate and the Clear Stamp of the Month. Morning Glories welcome you to open this charming gate and step inside for a refreshing glass of iced tea.
Farmhouse Garden Gate Tips and Tricks
Patterned papers and images from Simple Stories Simple Vintage Farmhouse Garden collection provide the perfect setting for this dimensional garden gate. You’ll be happy to know that this gate came together quickly and easily. Here’s how:
- First, die cut 2 gates from cream cardstock.
- Next, adhere the gates together to provide extra strength.
- Now, gently round the gate by rolling it over the barrel of a marker to create a curve.
- Then place 1/8″ foam adhesive strips on the left and right hand fence posts.
- Adhere the posts to the card front one at a time. After the first post has been adhered you can gently push the opposite post toward the center of the gate to create the curve.
Now you can tie a bow through the front of the gate, add flowers, butterflies and other embellishments to finish the design.
Making the Morning Glories
Would you like to know my secret tip for making the flowers on this card?
- First, die cut a whole bunch of flower and leaf layers from scraps of cream cardstock.
- Next, place the leaves and flower layers in separate containers. I used shallow recycled plastic snack containers for this. (Smart Balance Snacks work great.)
- Now, place a drop of Distress re-inker in the plastic container and spray in a bit of water. You need just enough water to create a small puddle.
- Next, tip the container around to color the leaves and flower layers.
- Then fold paper towels and tip the colored leaves and flowers out to dry.
- Shape the leaves by running a small ball stylus up the center. Then shape the flowers by poking the center with a small ball stylus. This will lift the petals and cup the flowers.
- Now layer the flowers together with a dot of adhesive. Then place Dries Clear Adhesive in the cup of each flower and sprinkle in a few Prills.
A Peek Inside
Create an envelope pocket inside the card. Then mat a 3×4 card from the paper collection on matching cardstock. Thread a ribbon through the top and tuck inside the envelope pocket. Now stamp a sentiment from the stamp set on patterned paper. I love the fonts, tiny florals and sentiments in this set! They are perfect for cardmaking!
