Kia ora Koutou
I was asked to make a card for a workmate of my husband who was leaving his job for another position. I struggle to make masculine cards but Amazing Paper Grace came to the rescue. I had done a similar card to this when the Amazing Paper Grace Make A Scene collection came out so I thought I would change the colour combinations to a white and blue and make a scene with the Make a Scene Rolling Along Scene dies. The bicycle was symbolic of his workmate moving onto the next job with best wishes from the team. Apparently he was quite a keen gardener so I made lot of different flowers to decorate the card. He came up to my husband to say thank you for the card and he loved it so I was very happy.
Dies were provided by Amazing Paper Grace for today’s creations.
I have made a 5″ x 7″ card and added some pretty background paper to fit on the front. I die cut the frame using the outline die and the outer frame dies from the Amazing Paper Grace Filigree Facade Frame dies from white and blue cardstock. I die cut the fence from the Amazing Paper Grace Cozy Home dies in white and adhered it behind the frame as shown. I then added the frame to the front of the card with foam tape. I die cut the house out of blue cardstock and all the accessories out of white cardstock, assembled them and adhered to the centre of the card behind the fence. I die cut an extra house out of white cardstock and trimmed the hedge and base and inked them with green ink and adhered to the base house.
I decorated the ‘garden’ using flowers from the Amazing Paper Grace Cozy Home Scene, Rolling Along Scene and Perfect Picture Window Scene dies and added them to the front of the house and behind the fence.
I used the bicycle from the Amazing Paper Grace Rolling Along Scene dies and added it to the bottom right with foam squares. I decorated this with leaves and flowers from the same set. I added a little dog in front of the house and a rabbit on the bottom right of the card.
To finish the card I have added the sentiments from the Amazing Paper Grace Bold Greetings set. I die cut two sets – one from silver and one from grey and stacked them together with the grey set behind the silver set to add a shadow and allow the sentiment to stand out more. I then added some flowers around the sentiment.
