Happy Wednesday and Heartfelt Creations day! The new Old English Garden Collection has all the design team members inspired - Be sure to visit the HC blog to see all the lovely creations! I used a sentiment from the set on this card, and combined it with the beautiful scenery stamps from recent collections.
Note: finished card size is 5" x 7"

BASE CARD and MATS
Start with a piece of blue card stock measuring 7" x 10", score at 5", and fold. Cut a piece of textured yellow card stock measuring 4 7/8" x 6 7/8", and mount to the front of the card. Cut green card stock to measure 4 5/8" x 6 5/8", distress the edges and mount on the front of the card.
Cut patterned paper to measure 4 1/2" x 6 1/2". Ink the grass image with green ink and stamp several times across the right side and bottom of the patterned paper.
Using distress markers ink the tall blooms with purple ink and green stems and stamp on the left of the patterned paper. Ink the dandelions with yellow and dark green markers, and stamp twice. Stamp the fence twice on ivory card stock, using brown ink.
Stamp the broken wheel once on ivory card stock, also in brown ink. Cut these out with the matching dies, then color with a light brown marker. Finally stamp the flowers with purple blossoms using green ink on a scrap of patterned paper, trim it closely.
Add green ink around the edges of the image with a blending tool or sponge, and mount it on the green mat on the front of the card. Glue on the 2 fences, and add the wheel and the trimmed flower with foam squares. Add liquid pearls to the dandelions and small purple blooms.
Stamp the sentiment in dark green ink on ivory card stock. Cut/emboss with the long rectangle die. Sponge some lighter green ink around the edges and mount with foam squares.
