My Dad has a little greenhouse and this Garden Greenhouse so reminded me of him. Although I think he grows mostly vegetables in his, I just had to get this Bundle and make some pretty cards. Using the Stamping-Off technique, you can create the illusion of flowers in the background – as if they were in the back of the greenhouse – and then brighter flowers look closer up.
Full list of supplies needed, listed below. A die cutting machine is needed for this card.
