Make your own paper garden with these Gorgeous Garden Dies. Add these die-cut beauties to your next handmade card for an intricate background you can adorn in any way you like. Add a stamped sentiment, additional die-cut pieces, and some ribbon or embellishments to customize the look.

Gorgeous Garden Dies in yellow, blue and green featuring a leaf die-cut and a "you're simply marvelous" on a punched circle.

I wanted a springtime feel for this card, so I went with a soft color palette: Lemon Lolly, Balmy Blue and Lemon Lime Twist. I love how it turned out! If you’d like something brighter, make sure to check out my Color Combination Library.

I started this card in mind using one of the beautiful sentiments in the Perennial Postage sentiment-only stamp set. To finish off the card, I opted for some Lemon Lolly Ribbon and used a circle punch for a quick and easy sentiment to round out the card.
