Spring card with pots of flowers and a shovel made with the Garden Cut and Emboss Folders

Garden Icons Cut and Emboss Folders- Made Easy

Hi friends,

Today we are going to make the prettiest card for spring using the Garden Icons Cut and Emboss Folders. What's great about our cut and emboss folders is that the dies are embedded into the folders, and they are quick and easy embellishment makers. You will love using your paper scraps, patterned paper and even vellum to create spring icons like no other. We like to give the tip to cut a bunch of them at one time, so you have them to use as needed. If you don't have the Garden Icons Cut and Emboss Folders, then you can get them on sale on our website this week. 

If you do have these lovely folders, get them out and let's make this card together!

First, we cut 2 colors from the Luxury Matte Foil Cardstock- Antique to fit inside our Garden Icons Cut and Emboss Folders.

The first time that we use the folders, we like to add a piece of wax paper between the folder and the paper. It makes for easy release of your beautiful diecuts.
We cut one of the pretty, vellum cards from the Floral Pattern Vellum Cards and Envelopes with the shadow layer from the Birthday Wishes 3D Concentric Dies.
Next add 2 diecut layers from the Birthday Wishes 3D Concentric Dies. We used a purple cardstock from the Luxury Matte Foil Cardstock- Antique
The Climbing Vine Decoupage Diecuts make the loveliest embellishment on our card.
Add them on both sides as shown.
We added a Many Thanks sticker to the top of our card, but you could use any sentiment you please.
It's time to add your diecuts to the card! Place the shovel on the right side with foam adhesive.
You can cut slits in your pots and add flowers inside. These blooms are are from the 120 Botanical Engravings Stickers.
Stagger the flower pots for perspective.
Fussy cut one of the gardening gloves diecuts and layer it on top of the other with foam adhesive to make it 3D.
Place it between the pots and shovel to complete your card.
Anyone would be grateful to receive such a wonderful, spring card. 
There are plenty of different looks that you can create with the Garden Icons Cut and Emboss Folders. The images included mix and match beautifully!

Super Cute!!! I did go out and garden today but not fun gardening, with all the rain we have been getting in SO CA my weeds are popping up. This looks like way more fun to me. I really like the garden (she) shed idea.
