You can tell that around here, we adore spring and the prospect of blooming flowers.This month we invite you to take an idyllic stroll to a place of beauty. It calls and beckons to you, to come and sit down and enjoy your surroundings and all of the nature around you. Today I’m introducing a beautiful new Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month. The way in . . . is through the Garden Gate. Introducing the beautiful new Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month for May 2021, Mini 3D Vignette Garden Gate.
Dies for my creations today were supplied by Amazing Paper Grace.This A7 showpiece folds flat into an envelope, only to expand and sit on a desktop where it invites the lucky recipient to take a stroll through the Garden Gate. As always, this die is meant to break apart and use the dies separately. The elements are less than 4″ wide and are begging you to use them on an A2 card. You’ll love the charming details – hinges, a hook lock and a swinging sign to record your message.
Here are some ideas that might inspire you to create a flat card or box:
1. The picket fence for a gatefold card (hint the gate really opens).
2. The Arches for a wedding.
3. The flowers and vines are curved to fit the arch but also make a wreath.
4. A picket fence box and the arches for handles.Inviting you to plan your own garden and know you are in a place of peace and beauty when you come in through the Garden Gate.
There are 15 dies included in the Mini 3D Vignette Garden Gate.
My Project Today using Mini 3D Vignette Garden Gate.
The gate and arch reminded me of weddings so I have made two wedding cards – one a 5″ x 7″ card and one a 3D vignette with coordinating basket that would be perfect for putting in a gift or money voucher. I have added the bride and groom from the Amazing Paper Grace Layered Happily Ever After Etched Dies Elegant 3D Vignettes by Becca Feeken for two very romantic birthday cards.
The leaves and flowers are heavy on the arch so use two layers of cardstock or one heavy piece of cardstock for the arch.
