A Glorious Gardener’s Garden Apron…


Good Morning Lakeside Stampers! 

If you know any one who gardens this would be the ideal card to make for them. This like so many of the other cards at my “Garden Workshop” was great fun.


I cut a piece of  5-1/2″x 8-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″ (apron), a piece of 4″ x 3-3/4″ (pocket) out of Garden Green Card Stock and a 5-1/4″ x 4″ piece of Pretty-in-Pink Card Stock. I traced the apron template on both Garden Green and Pretty-in-Pink and cut out the arm part. I stamped the flower images from the Little Flowers Stamp Set (retired) in Pretty-in-Pink Ink. For the pocket I scored it at 1/2″ for the top flap. I cut three pieces of 1-1/8″ x 1″ from  Old Olive Designer Series Paper. Using my Corner Rounder Punch I rounded one bottom corner on two of the decorative pocket squares as well as two corners on the pocket. The next thing I did was with my Crop-A-Dile I punched four small holes, secured four green eyelets and threaded Pretty-in-Pink Grosgrain Ribbon as shown.

DSC_0516 Initially all the tools were cut using another die cutting machine other then the Big Shot but, I traced these die images off, made a template for the class and printed it on card stock so all they have to do it cut it out and use it to trace around in the future. The glove I made myself and the seed packet was computer generated. Here is the template for you to print out. I don’t know what scale it will print out in so I’ve included dimensions.




For the center Flower I used my Trio Flower Punch and punched out the largest flower in Garden Green. the smaller Pumpkin Pie Flower is From the Flower Fusion Set which I secured with a green brad. I adhered it with a Dimensional.


 I then put it all together as the top photograph shows. Voila-Done!

Thanks for looking.

Stampin’ Hugs,
