Gardener’s Delight

Good Morning Everyone, I hope this day is bringing you good things!  I have another man’s card to share with you, this was designed for my Friday ladies, who had asked for a gardening card for a man.  With a deep intake of breath, I managed to come up with this one for the men folks in our lives 🙂

garden card 006

This card measures 23.5cm x 17cm. The papers are from Joanna Sheen’s Heart of the Garden CD.  The large green layer is 14cm x 20.5cm  and the pretty herb paper is 5mm less, i.e. 13.5cm x 20cm.  The white layer in the centre of the card measures 14.5cm x 9.5cms, the green mat is 14cm x 9cms and the checked paper layer is 13.5cm x 8.5cms.  The garden implements are die cut from X-Cut’s A5 Garden Tools.  I have used Heartfelt Creations Classic Leaf  dies with matching stamp for my leaves.  The spikey flowers are die cut from Marianne Branch & Flower 2 dies.  The little birds which are on the top of the central layer and sitting on the garden spade are also Marianne, Birds on a Wire.  The sentiment is mounted on a small die from Spellbinders Nestabilities Majestic Elements, Labels Eight.  I typed the sentiment and when it was printed out, I then used Spellbinders Nestabilities, Labels 32 to cut die cut it.  The flowers and leaves are punched out from a mini Papermania punch.  I used Sparkles Gold Glitter Glue to draw outlines on some of the elements and for the centres of the small white flowers (I wanted to  just to add a smidgen of interest to this man card – I couldn’t help myself!!).  The ribbon is from my own collection.  Have a wonderful day all!  Hugs, Annie xx
