Garden Gate

Dear Ones~
Today's offering has been made for the Stamp TV Monday Challenge. This week Cat has asked us to use THIS....or THAT. THIS is an embossing folder, THAT is vellum. We can use either one. I chose both.

Here's my card:
Isn't this image adorable? It's part of a GKD's stamp set called Cottage Garden, by Claire Brennan. I love all of Claire's work. I stamped the image on GKD heavy weight card stock and colored it with my Stampin' Up Markers. I heat embossed the greeting on vellum and attached it to the panel that was die cut with a stitched scalloped rectangle. The background is white card stock that has been embossed with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dot embossing folder. I fussy cut the little blue birds and popped them up with dimensionals. The flowers were punched from various stash punches.

Here are the Ingredients:
GKD Red Hot and White Card Stock
Cuttlebug Swiss Dot Embossing Folder
Die-namics Stitched Mini Scalloped Rectangle
GKD Cottage Garden Stamp Set
Stash Flower Punches
Yellow Nuvo Crystal Drops
