Garden from the Heart with Herbs

Today's card is another one using Garden from the Heart, a lovely set from the 2010 Occasions Mini Catalog.  The stamp image of herbs drying on the line is the focal point.

The color scheme is Rich Razzleberry and Barely Banana.  The herbs are stamped in Basic Brown on Whisper White cardstock; soft color is added with Stampin' Write Markers.  I used a Blender Pen with pale Almost Amethyst ink to add a faint shadow around the herbs.  The lower corner was torn off, the edges distressed with the Cutter Kit and the edges sponged with banana ink.

A square of Rich Razzleberry had each corner punched with the Scallop Edge Corner Punch before the image layer was adhered.  A knot of the gorgeous Rich Razzleberry Polka Dot Grosgrain Ribbon was added to the upper left corner.

In this set is a stamp which fits the Curly Label Punch!  I love it when our stamps and punches work together!  This "label" was stamped in Razzleberry and the bird colored with a Creamy Caramel Marker.  A line of Barely Banana was added with the marker just inside the outline of the label.  I punched it out with the Curly Label Punch and adhered it with a Dimensional.

Rich Razzleberry cardstock is the base; a layer of Barely Banana was run through the Big Shot machine in the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder to give these deeply embossed dots!  It's amazing how much texture and dimension the embossing folders give!

On the inside I layered white cardstock and stamped it with the another curly label frame, this one from the Vintage Label set which is free with a $50. purchase during Sale-A-Bration.  Inside it I stamped the "Happy Birthday" that also came with the set.  The garden gloves were stamped in the lower right corner of the card.

Thanks for visiting!  Don't forget that Sale-A-Bration is almost over but there is still time to place your order and reap the benefits of FREE STAMPS!!  March 31st is the last day!!
