Oriental Hidden Garden Card

Happy Monday!! I hope you had a great weekend!! It's my turn to post on the Die-Versions Blog and I have a card to share with you using two of the dies from the newest release, as well as several other Die-Versions dies.


For my card, I created a hidden garden. The gate is the new Whispers Oriental Screen. I cut it out in foam and adhered it to the cardstock for some dimension. Thinking of You is from the Compliments Everyday die. Tucked among the Wild Orchid Crafts flowers is a Whispers Daisy Flair die, which isn't currently in stock.


Open the gate to reveal the beautiful Whispers Geisha taking a stroll with her glittered parasol. She is joined on her stroll with several critters from the Wee-Petites Buggy die set. She's staring at the Whispers Butterfly Garden die (not currently in stock). I used a hole punch on some Velcro to keep the gate closed.


I am entering this in the following challenges:

1. Little Scrap Pieces - Show if Off Saturday
2. 2 Creative Chicks - Anything Goes
3. Pause, Dream Enjoy Linky - Anything Goes
4. Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes

Thanks so much for stopping by!! Have a great day :)

  7. Pretty shades of purple. Especially like the sparkly parasol. Did you stamp the Oriental design on the cardstock? Like the flowers. I created a Valentine/Love ATC this weekend that I posted & used some white paper flowers painted them pink & added stickles. Have a BEE-utiful day!

    1. Good to see this wonderful Oriental framework die at play again. It looks fantastic atop this delicate floral stamping, and what a perfect color to show off this stamp & die. Liking that crackled look too. Of course the lush floral bouquets that are part of your signature style - always add more icing! THEN, you made it a tri-fold, with more pretty inside. Just beautiful all the way. TFS & Hugs. Glad the storm missed your area.

  36. WOWZERS girl, you just keep them coming! This is spectacular! I love the Oriental Screen die and how you used it! The flowers are gorgeous and always love the sprays, sprigs you always tuck in and around them! The inside is gorgeous! What a creative card and such a fabulous design! Your work is always so incredible and over the top! Love this Lisa!

    I hope you are having a great week! So, did you get a lot of snow? We only got about 3 inches, nothing like the east coast! Ofta, that is crazy! I wish we would get a good foot though as we have our annual snowmobile trip coming up~that would be perfect!
    Hope you have a great day!
