While Waiting for the Garden
Sorbet Paper Collection!
This months team up: Gel-a-tins
For my trellis, I used the Cricut Ornament Iron cartridge and Cricut Craft Room to make a single gate into a trellis. I just copied the piece until I had four gates, and rotated 3 pieces 90 degrees until the center lines, became a grid. I hid some of the pieces that were too small and made my image uneven and love the look! I added a flourish to the corner and welded all the pieces. I cut it in black card stock and used foam tape to pop it off the page just a bit. Below is a photo of the single gate, single swirl and the final trellis is on my page photo at the top of the post. I have always wanted to try metal work, but I cannot afford another craft and love that I can design and cut faux iron on my Cricut!
I wanted a subtle title, so I stamped it using gel-a-tins Teal You What embossing powder on white card stock. It works so well with the Aqua Glitter Sorbet paper! The title is stamped with gel-a-tins Laugh Out Loud Oversized Mix stamp set. Here's a tip for those imperfect stamped images when using embossing powder. Stamp your image, and added embossing powder. Be sure to heat set your embossing powder FIRST. Then, fill in the missing areas with a Stampin' Up blending pen. Can you see my white spot on the letter "e" below?
