All Seasons Scene Card


I am VERY happy to be guest designer for Zeni over at Scrappy Zeni. She asked me to create a project of my choice... there was NO WAY I'd refuse! :)  Thanks so much Zeni! I love the opportunity to share with your terrific followers too!

Here is my project... I decided to make an "All Seasons Scene Card!"

I used craft colored card stock for the card base. For the background paper I matted a piece of DCWV glitter paper on some white card stock.  All the cuts were from Simply Charmed (if you don't have this cart, it really is worth the money and time to get it). 

I added the sentiment that I printed up on my computer.  It reads:

There is no season such delights can bring 
As summer, autumn, winter and spring.
-William Browne


I embellished the little seasonal scenes with embossing (Snowflakes on winter, Swiss Dots on spring and summer, and Perfectly Paisley of fall), glitter glue, a little glossy accents and gel pen doodles around the little frames as well as the card base (front and inside).  I also attached a sheer blue ribbon on the card front under the sentiment.

If you are interested in re-creating my card I am sharing the Gypsy file with you!! I LOVE freebies and blogs that share files ROCK!! 
(Yep, I am saying "I ROCK!!") :)

I finally have the cartridge that someone inpires me to use. But alas not a Gypsy to use your file. What size is the finished card? The rest I can figure out.
