We are celebrating the newest release called:
on-the-fence-bundle
On the Fence Bundle
This bundle comes with a brand new exclusive die template manufactured by Spellbinders Paper Arts called On the Fence Die!

What makes this die unique? It's versatility! At first glance, you might see just a fence but soon you'll realize it can be so much more. Follow us on the blog hop each day from August 27-31 to find out what all this die can do.

Let's get started. Here's my project using the new Wild Rose  image.

This project is full of fun newly release products from The Rubber Cafe and the Rubber Cafe Design Team has been showcasing new release projects on the DT blog all week long!


I started by created a top folding A2 card out of yellow cardstock.
I embossed a panel of Pugnacious white paper with a Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder.

Then I stamped wood grain background with Memento London Fog ink on Pugnacious white paper and then die cut the stamped panel with Spellbinders On the Fence die and adhered it to the bottom of the embossed panel.  I added the polka dot ribbon and then adhered the whole thing to the card front.


I stamped the Wild Rose with black memento ink on a panel of Pugnacious white paper and colored it with markers.  After I fussy cut the image out I randomly added You're So Fine Diamond Clear Cool Glitter with Scrap Happy Glue.

I used a pencil to help curve the leaves and petals and adhered it to the card with pop dots.

The sentiment from the Friends Stamp Set was stamped on a die cut label with London Fog ink and added to the card with pop dots.

I hope you enjoyed today's card.  Let me know if you have any questions.
Happy Stamping!

Paper: Bazzill Basic,  Pugnacious white paper
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black and London Fog dye ink, Copic Markers
