Introducing Make It Market Mini Kit: Garden Gild


Today is the second of Papertrey Ink's May Release group posts, and we're introducing another of Betsy's fabulous Make It Market Mini Kits. This one is called Garden Gild, and it is absolutely gorgeous!

Before I get to my projects, just a reminder that all of the May release products will be available in the Papertrey Ink store tomorrow, April 15, at 10 pm EST.

Make It Market Mini Kit: Garden Gild is a beautiful kit that combines soft watercolor backgrounds, gold foiling, and a stamp with filled with florals and large script sentiments.

The Make It Market Mini Kits are always beginner-friendly while also offering customization options for more experienced stampers. My first card is super easy to create, with impressive results thanks to the beauty of the kit supplies.


I started with one of the lovely kit patterns and added a stamped sentiment. The large word "happiness" is stamped in Hibiscus Burst ink. The smaller sentiment components were stamped in VersaMark and heat embossed in gold.


I die-cut a soft scalloped border twice using the Edgers #3 die, once in white card stock and once in vellum. I adhered them to the base panel just below the sentiment. Embellishments are simple -- gold embroidery floss and a few gold sequins.



My second card is more involved, yet still not difficult at all. I die-cut a large scalloped circle sentiment one of the backgrounds using the Scene It: Basic Backer die. Behind that is a white Scene It: Doily Tag Base die-cut. 


I added two sentiment components and some aqua mist, limeade ice, and vintage cream felt flower die-cuts, as well as some clear sequins. The individual flower dies are included with the Garden Gild cutting plate. I love the layering possibilities!



The card base is aqua mist topped with some large polka dot Sheer Basics Vellum topped again with a white Garden Gild cover plate die-cut.
