For this project, we are only doing one page, with our information and minor decoration on the back.
Here we go:
The image of the door comes from Graphics Fairy, a great site for free images, mostly vintage. It was printed on plain copy paper, glued to cardboard, and enhanced with some ink, embossing powder, and a little metal on the top of the arch. It is attached to the base with a combination of adhesive and brads, and it's a pretty strong connection.
The background is just a decorative napkin. Some floral stamps were used to add some flowers from the background onto the door, and then a few very small Prima flowers with dots of stickles in the center finished that off.
The door does open. I used one of those little photo tabs to hold it closed.
So, what lies beyond this garden door? Why, a garden gate to a secret garden, that's what.
This door/gate is made of thin wood, but I covered it with micaceous iron oxide paint so it looks like old metal. I don't have the packaging it came in, so am not 100% sure of its origin, but I THINK I found it at Navel Jelly. My apologies if I'm wrong. So hard to keep track of all the supplies, you know. The garden beyond is paint on deli paper; the flowers were "painted" with both glaze and souffle pens.
Onto the back:
The background is some decorative paper from Stampin' Up that I've had for ages. I stamped the LaBlanche garden gate stamp right over the text. The little girl is another great image from Graphics Fairy, and I gave her some extra flowers to hold. My personal information will go on this page.
