Garden Scene

I'm sure most of you are aware of my addiction when it comes to magazine 'freebies' and I have to confess that sometimes it is a while before I get around to actually using them (if at all sometimes!!). However I've been using the ones which I picked up recently and here is another card which incorporates the free embossing folder, an image from the free papers supplied and various die cuts.  I've also used a couple of dies from my collection to add to the scene.

I started with a square of green card which was layered onto a square of one of the pretty papers in the set.  The archway was embossed onto some white card and sponged with matching green ink before cutting away the actual arch so that I could pop one of the free images behind.  The trellis was die cut along with a good selection of flowers, butterflies and leaves.  The grass along the bottom was cut with a die from my collection as was the large flower pot and a ladybird.  The trellis die wasn't really long enough for this card so it was cut twice and joined - hence the flower pot to hide the join - cunning or what?

Embossing Folder - free with Die Cutting Essentials
Trellis, flowers, leaves, butterflies - free with same magazine (also free papers and images)
Flower pot - die from Joanna Sheen
Ladybird - die from my collection, not sure of source but I've had it a long time
Grass - die from Dienamics, My Favourite Things
Sentiment - from computer popped onto stitched circle Stampin' Up


  1. A gorgeous card Val, I love the embossing folder and the different dies you've incorporated into the card, especially the little ladybird.

  2. You're a girl after my own heart Val where the freebies are concerned. This is a really beautiful card. I absolutely love the colours. The scene is very pretty indeed with your selection of dies . Barbxx

  3. What a beautiful scene you've created Val, love the trellis and the little ladybird x

  4. This card is beautiful, Val, I love all the detail. I actually picked up this magazine with the freebies this week, but resisted the temptation and put it back on the shelf. I'm thinking now that I shouldn't have been so strong willed!! LOL! xx
