The charm of the garden and the sweetness of winding vines and flowers are the inspiration for our blog hop this month. This month we invite you to take an idyllic stroll to a place of beauty. It calls and beckons to you, to come and sit down and enjoy your surroundings and all of the nature around you. I’m showcasing the Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month for May 2021 called Mini 3D Vignette Garden Gate.

This A7 showpiece folds flat into an envelope, only to expand and sit on a desktop where it invites the lucky recipient to take a stroll through the Garden Gate. As always, this die is meant to break apart and use the dies separately. The elements are less than 4″ wide and are begging you to use them on an A2 card. You’ll love the charming details – hinges, a hook lock, and a swinging sign to print your message.
Here are some ideas that might inspire you to create a flat card or box:
1. The picket fence for a gatefold card (hint the gate really opens).
2. The Arches for a wedding.
3. The flowers and vines are curved to fit the arch but also make a wreath.
4. A picket fence box and the arches for handles.
Inviting you to plan your own garden. Just know you are in a place of peace and beauty when you come in through the Garden Gate.
There are 15 dies included in the Mini 3D Vignette Garden Gate.
My Project Today using Mini 3D Vignette Garden Gate is a Mother’s Day Ensemble with a card and a spacious basket! I created the card using a half oval. The basket is four picket fence panels with a strip glued to make a hinge. For the bottom, I enclosed a box bottom that is a mere 1/4″ high. I didn’t want it to take away from the pickets.
Designer Tip: It’s simple to mirror your fronds placing one right side up and placing one wrong side up. It creates the symmetry your eye is looking for and people will never notice the wrong side of double sided paper.
