Episode 8 - Friendship Card- Gazebo & Tree Scene





Welcome to episode 8. Watch the video to see how I create this lovely scene card. Scene cards are one of my favorites!

I have to say...that I had this whole card made and then realized I never planned a sentiment for it. So I started playing around with my Scrappy Mom stamps and decided to give it a try stamping the sentiment right onto the popped up gazebo. Yes that is right. I used their high quality stamps to stamp on an image that was already done, on a card that was already done, on a raised up surface and you know what, it stamped perfectly. You can really trust the Scrappy Mom Stamps! I love them.

I love this Gazebo...so stinking pretty. I did change out the butterflies. Also sorry about the fact that sometimes when I held things up to show you, you could not see them. I tried a new position with my tripod tonight and I don't think I like it as well.

Let me know what you think of the card and the video! Hope you enjoy!

You did a fantastic job on this card and I love it. Normally stick to the A2 cards but this is just so beautiful. I have one Question.. Where do you get the bottles with the metal top for applying tiny glue spots? GAscrappnGramma@gmail.com

Thanks so much ladies. To answer the question about the glue bottle...check out www.quilledcreations.com They have the glue bottle (empty) with the stainless steel pin to prevent it drying up, for I think around 5 bucks and you put your favorite glue in it. I absolutely love it!

Love this card. I have been wanting to make that gazebo. I tried once, but cut it too small. Will have to try again.
