Garden Circle Scene Card

Hi crafters!  The Garden Circle Scene die set is the perfect one to use to make a beautiful spotlight styled card.  It is easier than it looks too!  I will walk you through it in today's video.

 The finished dimensions are 7" x  7 1/2" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Hello Sue,

Rays of sunlight and loveliness in your card today. It certainly looks like the perfect spring or summer day. The detail is amazing. Loved the video with all of your helpful tips. Thanks so much for sharing with us.

Have a wonderful day.

Happy Sunny Saturday Sue ☺

Thank you for the invite to walk through your pretty garden albeit only a virtual invite and tour. Yet again you've given us the tools inspiration and imagination to give family, friends and Joe Blogs something you'd never get from a shop bought card. The sun rays alone give this sample power and a ray of happiness, but then you add the fence, dainty flowers gardening tools etc and it immediately turns into something that I defy anyone not to smile at and I just love how you've bought us into this virtual sunshine garden by adding the circle of rays, all I need now is a lovely padded garden chair, sun shades and a long cold glass of something and my tour of this sun drenched garden is complete. Off to see how the expert pulls it all together lol. Sending hugs full of sunshine and happiness xxx

Lisbeth said...

Hi Sue. Glad I watched the video because at first glance I thought you had created the sunburst with your die and I thought it would be too thick to die cut all those layers! Love the card now I have seen how to make it.

I fell in love with this card the moment I saw it. It is such a bright and happy card. I will look forward to watching the 'how to' later.
The sun is promising to make an appearance today - here's hoping. Washing on the line then few jobs before playtime - my dad's Birthday Card needs to be finished and posted.
Happy Saturday everyone x

Hi Sue, thank you for demonstrating how this card comes together. WakeyL

Donita Naylor said...

So THAT'S how you do that!

Thank you for the video and for including the names of the colors you used.

It's nice to have the rays as a die and bigger as a stencil.

What if the rays went up, and you used an oval instead of a circle. Add a bunny and some eggs with the tulips, and it's Easter!

Thanks for sending us cheer this morning.

Fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, I have spent most of what was a glorious day working in my garden hoping to make it look as pretty as this card. I was driven indoors by thunder and heavy rain! I fell in love with the Circle Garden die set on launch and it was one of my first purchases from that range. I don't have the Sunrise mask (note to self - get it soon!) but have made a couple of cards so far with blue sky, fluffy white clouds and the sun peeking out from behind (from Necessities sets). I shall keep my fingers crossed that the sun comes out again as I have left the greenhouse open :( Thanks for the video - putting pearls on the flowers before cutting their heads off is a great idea to help pick them up, I will be using that tip.
