The Garden Greenhouse bundle by Stampin' Up! has amazing dies included in it. This card design showcases the fantastic greenhouse dies. The greenhouse frames the soft flowers beneath, with a hint of pink to add a bright, cheery spot to the card. This card could be used for a birthday card or sent for encouragement. The sentiment can be used for such a wide variety of occasions.
The pop of pink is an unexpected combination with Soft Sea Foam. Soft Sea Foam has become my new favourite Stampin' Up! colour. I paired it with the softer, Petal Pink in this card HERE. Today's card features Melon Mambo with the soft green and I love how it goes together.
Make it Yourself!
Create the subtle background by stamping the greenery in Soft Sea Foam ink on the Soft Sea Foam cardstock. You could use Versamark ink instead for a look that is more subtle. After stamping the background, I cut out the greenhouse opening with the plain. die cut. I then cut out the more intricate greenhouse die using gray granite cardstock.
The hardest part of this card is attaching the greenhouse die to the opening. The silicon mat and fine tip glue pen help make it easier. I started by placing a small line of glue along the edges of the greenhouse die cut and then centering it on the cut out. You can use the glue much like welding or soldering and add small dots of glue to the wider parts of the edges on the back. Lastly, I flipped it over, and placed one of my stamping blocks on top to make sure it stuck well.
You can see how messy my silicon sheet it, but even messy, it works well in allowing the glue to dry and not getting stuck to your tabletop or other paper. I highly recommend it for whenever you know that the glue will be messy. Thankfully the fine tip glue pen dries clear.
