Garden Window Apperture

Project By Rosie

8’’x8’’ White card
Taupe card

Cheerylynn Die – French Lattice

Stamps by-  Sheena Douglas / Silhouette Garden, and Barbara Gray Clarity Stamps
Distress ink pads – Aged Mahogany, Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed
Black embossing powder 

 Use the Cheerylynn Die to cut out the trellis from taupe card..

Cut the 8’’x8’’ white card in half and then use the Metal Trellis Die as a template, to cut around to form the aperture in the card. (I kept the piece of card I cut out to make the aperture, as this is used to form the scene at the back of the card.)

Use a blending tool and a combination of distress inks on your SplodgeAway mat to create the foreground and background to the card.

Once dry stamp the table and chairs in Versa mark, and then sprinkled over black embossing powder before heat embossing.

Next stamp the Foliage onto the front and back of the card, using the Aged Mahogany Distress inkpad.

Use the remainder of the taupe card to make the box for the back of the card.

Score around the Trellis Die to get the correct size, and then add 1” to each side to form the sides of the box. Cut out and assemble the box.

Finally I attached a piece of acetate into the apperture, followed by the trellis, and then attached the box to the back of the card.

To add a bit of Sparkle I added some cosmic shimmer dots to the Lupin’s and some Stickles.
