For my first project I had fun building a little garden for this wedding or anniversary card. 

I started by airbrushing the cloudy sky with the Cloud Border die and my Copic airbrush. Then I die cut all of the pieces and assembled the scene.

I had fun adding all of the little details in the scene like the hinges and gate pull and the sprinkles in the flower centers. I finished it off by stamping my sentiment onto vellum with Versamark and embossing with black powder. 

My second card also uses the Garden Arbor & Accessories along with the new Frame in Frame Cutting Plate to frame the scene. 

I simply used the arbor and gate on this project and left the fence off. After die cutting all of the pieces it was easy to assemble them on a precut 4 x 5.25 piece of Sugar Cube cardstock. 

After assembling the scene I die cut the frame from Toffee cardstock and popped it up with foam tape around the outside. I finished it off with a sentiment from the Fancy Banner 1 set. 

Tip: When you purchase the Frame in Frame Cutting Plate the frames will come tabbed together. If you leave them tabbed together you'll get 7 different frames with each cut!

Thanks so much for stopping by for our second day of sneak peeks! I hope you've seen something that inspires you to get crafty and share joy with your handmade creations.
