Garden Gate

After a few days of peeks and tons of eye candy courtesy of the Flourishes Design Team, we're happy to share that the April sneaks are over and all of the sets we've been showing off are LIVE in the Flourishes Store HERE! Today, we bring you one more hop and this one will have you hopping past the garden gate to see a bevy of beautiful roses!
GardenGateGraphic
Garden Gate, illustrated by Marcella Hawley, takes the beauty of a shrub rose and makes it a card maker's delight! The set features one beautiful arched shrub rose branch and a fun-filled,whimsical scene welcoming you beyond the garden's gate. This 4 by 6" set also offers 5 beautifully scripted sentiments.
Garden Gate is becoming another one of my favorite sets. The larger vine of flowers in this set was perfect for a thank you card I needed to get to a friend. I stamped the image onto classic white cardstock using memento tuxedo black ink.


Colored with copic collections:



Once colored I die cut the image using Spellbinders Romantic ovals. I then cut around the inside of the frame so that I could pop it up on dimensionals with the sentiment on the inside of the base of the card. Added several of the clear rhinestones and voila! I love love love how this turned out.
