Heirloom Frames meets Garden Lane cards

Hi Everyone,

Today, I've been playing with the new Heirloom Frames embossing folders and dies and mixed and matched some card stock and garden lane dsp to make two pretty cards.


(for both cards)
1 sheet of A4 card stock in soft sea foam, cut at 5 7/8" and then each piece scored at 4 1/8" to make two card bases
scraps of whisper white and soft sea foam
2 pieces of dsp 5 5/8" x 3 7/8" each
Heirloom frames dies & 3D embossing folders
Die cutting machine
Varied vases stamp set
Vases builder punch
Classic label punch
Old olive ink
Memento black ink
Light flirty flamingo blend to colour the flowers


Cut the card stock and make the card bases.

Using the scraps of whisper white and soft seam foam, cut out two frames with the die cuts.

Carefully line up the frame on the inside of the embossing folder and run it through your die cutting machine, this can be a bit tricky at first but be patient and it will work fine.  

These embossing folders are slightly thinner than the older ones and you will need a shim (I used several pieces of card) to make the embossing appear as crisp as it should.

Stamp a flower on the piece of card from the centre of the frame and colour in with a flirty flamingo blend. Punch out a vase with the vases builder punch from a scrap of the dsp and adhere over the stems of the flower.

Add the dsp to the card front and then mount the frame using dimensionals, then stick the flower in the middle of the frame with glue to make it look like a picture on a wall.

Stamp the sentiment on to a scrap of whisper white and punch out with the classic label punch and adhere to the card with dimensionals.  Stamp a sentiment on the inside if desired.

There you go, two pretty cards, hope you will give them a try, I'd love to see them.

Happy crafting,

Karen XX
