Hi! Today’s the day for a brand new release over at Rachelle Anne Miller. In the new release, there’s this Garden friends Scene Creator, a set with lots of different images you can put together to create your own little scene. My card took a bit of a turn, and I only have the hedgehog and the sun from the stamp set to share today, but there’s a lot more.

I’d initially printed the sun in the top left corner of a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2″ piece of X-Press It blending card, but there was something that didn’t quite work design wise. There was no natural place to put a greeting and I was pretty much out of ideas, so I decided to do a very aggressive crop.

I cut the panel in half, basically, and put the hedgehog on the front of the card and the sun on the inside. This gave me a better place for a greeting too. I printed a sentiment from the stamp set onto my colored piece after I’d colored it. Kind of held my breath while doing it, but it worked out great.

I adhered strips of Amarena Cherry cardstock above and below my image, giving it somewhat of a frame and a way to draw the eye to the image.

On a separate piece of X-Press It, I stamped the Happy Birthday background stamp from My Favorite Things in Amarena Cherry ink from MFT, adhered it to a top fold card base and mounted my colored piece with foam tape.

The end result is a very clean looking card. And I used red! I hardly ever use red, so this is a big deal for me.

I didn’t want the sun going to waste, so I adhered it to the inside of the card. Before doing that, I printed a sentiment next to it and added strips of Lemon Drop cardstock from My Favorite Things above and below. There’s still plenty of room at the bottom to write a personal message.

Last, but definitely not least, the colors I used for my image(s).
