Creative Circle March Blog Hop – Preview of The Garden

CCDT March Blog Hop Button

Welcome to the Creative Circle March Blog Hop.  This month we are giving you a preview of The Garden – one of Liz’ most recent projects.  If you’ve just come from her blog, you got a chance to see her lovely interpretation of the design.  Because it’s so easy to resize cut files on my Silhouette, I decided to miniaturize it a bit and make a card-in-a-box! 3-5-16BMy garden was primarily constructed with cardstock with a few bits of Botanical Gardens DSP used on the outside of the box (visible with flaps up) and the trellis.  All the flowers were cut using the Botanical Builder Framelits Dies and cardstock (Basic Black, Hello Honey, Whisper White, Old Olive, and Mossy Meadow)  the Happy Birthday greeting on the front was done with Teeny Tiny Wishes and the Word Window punch.

I made a couple of companion cards to go with the set – take a look: 3-5-16A

Again, I relied heavily on cardstock for my basic color scheme and accented with die cut flowers and bits of  Botanical Gardens DSP.  The greetings used were from Birthday Blooms and Botanicals For You – a Sale-a-Bration set designed to coordinate with the Botanicals suite!

If you will be in Salt Lake City on Wednesday, April 13th, consider joining us for our live event at the Hilton Salt Lake City Center.  You’ll get a pre-cut kit for The Garden 3D cardholder as well as 3 coordinating cards.  You’ll also receive a download code for all the cut files, a video tutorial on it’s assembly, as well as unwatermarked, unrestricted, written tutorials for the cards we make at the event as well as 9 additional coordinating cards.  To further entice you, here are a few teaser photos:
