Garden Ladder

Hello Crafty Friends,

Wow!! What a great new release!!  This collection is so fantastic for spring through summer and don't forget Mother's Day and Father's Day!  Especially if your folks love to be in their garden.  Check it out in the online store there are 19 different dies to choose from and everyone of them is so wonderfully detailed!

The die I am using today is called Garden Ladder isn't it adorable!!  I am making a Front Flap Card that I saw a tutorial for on at Splitcoaststampers.

Design Steps
1.  Blue card stock 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 (base),  Flower DP 4 x 5 1/4,  Blue card stock 8 1/2 x 3 1/4 folded in half, white card stock (for inside) 3 1/8 x 4 1/8, Red Dotted DP 3 1/8 x 4 1/8, Yellow checked DP (not shown in the above picture) 2 1/4 x 4
2.  Open up the folded blue card and glue down the white card stock and add a 1 inch strip of the red dotted DP
3.  Glue down the red dotted DP onto of the folded blue card and then added the yellow checked DP (I decided to layer the yellow onto blue card stock) 
4.  For the base of this card glue the Floral DP on top of the blue base rectangle 
5.  Using the Garden Ladder die cut out the pieces.  I used rust, silver metallic, blue, brown, yellow, light blue, green and olive card stock 
6.  Shade the pieces using a variety of inks and then assemble with a fine tip glue 

7.  Next add pop dots to the back of the ladder and pop it to the small blue card front.  Then glue the small card to the base rectangle.  Add the sentiment and the rhinestones and your card is complete
