Eden's Garden Fancy Edge Card

 Hi Everyone,

I thought I would have another play with the beautiful Eden's Garden Suite which is coming soon for customers (November 2nd).  This time, I have played with some of the designer series papers and the edge die which is very pretty.  Let me show you how I made this card.


1 piece of soft succulent card stock 5 7/8" x 7 1/2"
1" x 5 7/8" strip of evening evergreen cotton paper
1 piece of dsp 2 7/8" x 5 7/8", 1 piece of contrasting dsp 1 1/2" x 5 7/8"
1 piece of basic white 2 1/2" x 5 7/8" and a scrap for the sentiment
 2 strips of gold foil 1/2" x 5 7/8" and a scrap for the sentiment
Eden's garden stamp set
Evening Evergreen ink
Eden dies
Garden Gems
Stampin' Cut & Emboss machine
Simply scored
Bone folder
Multipurpose adhesive


On the long side score the card stock at 3 3/8" and fold and burnish to make the card base, the shorter side is the front piece.

Line up the edge die with the long side of the shorter front piece of the card front and run through the Stampin' Cut & Emboss machine to give the fancy, decorative edge.  Die cut another edge piece from the cotton paper in evening evergreen.

Adhere the cotton paper decorative edge along the card front, just behind the decorative edge of the card so that it peeps out from behind it.  Adhere a strip of the gold foil to the reverse of the card front, covering the edge of the cotton paper to protect it.

Add the larger piece of dsp to the card front so that it goes from the folded edge of the card up to the dotted line which will be showing from the die cut edge.

Add the smaller piece of dsp to the inside of the card from the outer edge.

Stamp a sentiment on the piece of basic white for the inside and add so that it slightly overlaps the edge of the dsp to cover it.

Add the other strip of gold foil over the join between the dsp and the basic white on the inside so that when the card is closed, it shows off the decorative edge of the card front, see images.

Stamp a sentiment on the scrap of basic white and layer this on to the gold foil and trim around it. Add a couple of the Garden gems and add to the card front using dimensionals.
