Feminine Greenhouse

Hi everyone, my card today was a request from my neighbour, she wanted a 80th birthday gardening card for a lady. BUT not funny, now I love to do fun cards, and that was my first thoughts, so a change of mind set was needed, difficult at my age LOL.

Anyhow this is what I came up with, it was made up of a beautiful freebie digi kit that I had a while ago. I laid it all out in PS, then sent it to the Cameo to print and cut several layers of the roses, the 80, the rose stamp and butterfly.

I printed the greenhouse onto crosshatched card, I love it, I think it makes the image look like it's painted on. I arranged all the layers onto the card and lace. I added silver Uniball Sparkle pen to the greenhouse frame, shame you can't pick it up, it does sparkle and gold Uniball Sparkle pen to the background pattern on the striped paper. Then layered it all on to black paper. I designed the inside and made a little scene with chairs etc on the left. I'm glad to say it was well received.













The centre is cut to fit, it just blew out of place!!!!!!!

  1. Yes printing the greenhouse onto the crosshatched card really makes it look like it's painted on. Clever idea to pop the silver pen on the greenhouse too. Thank you for sharing this pretty card x

  4. Love the pretty greenhouse on this textured paper. Now that was a brilliant idea! (actually it has sort of an old-fashioned xstitch appeal I think). The pinks are just right for a genteel 80 yr old lady, and this has so much elegance with all the roses, lace, and pretty dp. Those roses are just wonderful, so good job with the cameo! She'll love it! TFS & Hugs. (oh skillful one!)
