Sometimes my visions of what a card will look like and the outcome do not exactly match.  This is one of those cards.  However, I am ok with the result enough to share it with you.


My original idea was a fence with a sign on the gate.  I ended up with a gate.  So I am going to say that it has swung open and that is why no fence is next to it.  🙂

I started with the Follow Your Art Designer Series Paper.  This is one of the reverse sides , as I call them. The gate is embossed with the Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder after being stamped with the Crackle Paint background stamp first.  I used the Classic Label Punch to make the hinges.   I cut it into two pieces and added Metallic Pearls.  The door knob is the punched out hole of the Delightful Tag Topper Punch.

For the sign I used the Rectangle Stitched Frames.  I shortened the frame that was wide enough for my sign by cutting it out.  I then went back and attached the die back to the cut out piece at the length I needed.  There are several videos out on how to do this.  It is quite easy once you wrap your head around it.

The butterflies were just happy add ons from the same stamp set.  I used the Old Olive, Coastal Cabana, and Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Write Markers to color the butterflies.   I forgot to say this is the Beauty Abounds stamp set and the Butterfly Beauty Dies.

Thank you so much for visiting today.  Tomorrow is the InKing Royalty Blog Hop!!  I hope you will return to see all of the great projects.
