Garden Grow Card

posted in: Blog, Janet 0

Hello, Janet here with a new card.  I have not used this stamp set by Altenew for a while so thought I would get out this stamp set and have a play.  I have listed and linked all the items I used at the bottom of this blog post.



To start, I trimmed one card base using Bazzill cardstock and a card front using mixed media card to 5.5″ x 4.25″.  On a separate panel of mixed media card stock I stamped the Wood Pallet Background stamp all over the front of this card using the Paper Bag ink – also by Altenew.


Then die cut this panel with both dies from the Postage Stamp die, and another from the mixed media card.  I stamped the stacked pots and the pot of herbs from the Garden Grow stamp set and coloured in using the Real Brush Clean Colour Markers and die cut out using the Garden Grow co-ordinating dies.Altenew Garden

For my card base, I used a sheet of Marshmallow card cut in half and scored and folded to make it a A2 sized card.  I inked the edges of a piece of mixed media card with Forest Glade ink to give some colour behind the wood pallet stamped pieces.


Finishing The Card

I adhered the two larger frames together with liquid glue to give some dimension and also adhered the two smaller frames together. I used all the pieces from the stamped panel to make a picture frame with liquid glue. The herb pot with adhered with foam tape so it is standing on the upside down stacked pots in the centre of the card.
