Garden Greenhouse Gets Some Love

Garden Greenhouse Duo

It’s another FAB Stampers Saturday, and it’s my turn to make a project. I’m using the Garden Greenhouse Bundle to make two cards. One is a book fold and the other is a quick and easy card.

One of my first purchases from the now retiring January-June 2022 Mini Catalog was the Garden Greenhouse Bundle. It has the prettiest stamps, and the dies are gorgeous! But after I bought it, it sat on my shelf UNTIL NOW! It’s time for this bundle to get some love!

Mix of Old and New

My first project today is a Book Fold Card. It has a “spine” along the side and only the portion with the greenhouse opens. I used the new in-colors for this project, along with the Garden Greenhouse Bundle which is retiring at the end of this month.

The large leaf image is stamped on Basic White using Parakeet Party ink. The flowers are stamped on a scrap of Basic White using Sweet Sorbet, Tahitian Tide, and Orchid Oasis, then die cut with the coordinating dies from the bundle. I also die cut three sets of Parakeet Party leaves.

Easy Book Fold

This card uses an easy Book Fold. I started with a 4″ x 11″ piece of Parakeet Party cardstock, scored at 4 1/4″ and 5 1/2″. Add glue to the area between the two score lines and fold the card closed on the 5 1/2″ score line to seal and create the spine. How easy is that? Now you’re ready to decorate as desired.

If you’re going to add ribbon or twine to the spine of the card, I suggest using one of your punches to punch a small spot in the edge of both ends of the spine. This will keep your ribbon in place. Just be careful that no other area of your card is getting punched!

Details

I glued a few of the die cut flowers directly to the panel with the stamped leaves. Next, I cut the greenhouse from Silver Foil. Cut a piece of silver foil slightly larger than the die. Cut a piece of Adhesive Sheet just a tiny bit smaller than your foil and adhere it to the back. This way, when you cut out the greenhouse, you’ll be able to just peel off the back and stick it on! No glue required! Trust me, you’ll be glad you did this instead of trying to get glue onto all those narrow pieces.

Garden Greenhouse Detail

I added the die cut leaves with glue and a few more of the die cut flowers with Mini Dimensionals.

The greeting is stamped in Sweet Sorbet on a scrap cut with a die from the new Fabulous Frames Dies and backed with a piece of Sweet Sorbet cut with a die from the Beautiful Shapes Dies. It is adhered with Mini Dimensionals. I used a couple of the small Matte Decorative Dots to cover the holes in the tag.

Finally, I added a strip of the new In-Color DSP to the spine and wrapped it with Sweet Sorbet Metallic Ribbon and added Wink of Stella to the flowers.

Quick and Easy Card

I wanted to show you that the Garden Greenhouse Bundle is versatile and can also be used to make quick and easy cards.

This Sweet Sorbet card is based on a card I received from Stampin’ Up! for earning this year’s Incentive Trip. I liked the simple design which requires only two strips of DSP across the top and bottom, and a stamped panel in between.
