Garden Wagon

Hello Scrapping Cottage friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with us today. It's Mary Marsh here bringing you the Monday edition of the Blog.

Hope you are doing ok and had a nice weekend. Since so many of us have the stay at home orders in place, it's nice to have a hobby where we can create beautiful cards. I put on some music and let my creative juices flow!!!

We have a brand new release of dies in the online store. This one is garden themed and has 19 new designs. These new dies are perfect for birthdays, Mother's Day, Father's Day or even a thinking of you card for the person who loves to garden.

For my card today, I am featuring the new Mouse w/Garden Wagon die. This one will be a Mother's Day card for a friend with that greeting on the inside of card.  I make a lot and send them to my family and friends. This year they will especially like the kind thoughts.

I made this card for the color challenge #788 on Splitcoaststampers. Our own Jeanne was the hostess for the challenge and she chose a bold and bright color trio.
lemon-lime twist, berry burst, powder pink
I cut the flowers and pots in the challenge colors. Sponged the lemon-lime twist cardstock with the same color ink to get a bit darker shade. I decided to cut his wagon in a black striped designer paper.

The little mouse is cut in smoky slate (neutral) cardstock and I sponged in the same color ink for depth. For the background of the image panel, I used a cloud stencil and sponged some clouds in spun sugar distress ink. To finish off my card, I scattered a few berry burst glitter enamel dots.

card base: 5 3/4" x 4 1/2"
white layer panel: 5 1/2" x 4 1/4"
designer paper panel: 5 3/8" x 4 1/8"
stitched scallop rectangle: largest die

Well that's it for me for this post. I hop I have given you another idea for a way to use this super cute new die. See you on Saturday!
