Tutti Designs - Easter Gate

Happy Sunday Friends!
Today I'm sharing a card of Easter and the hope of Spring using a beautiful new die from the fabulous Tutti Designs Store called 'Easter Gate' .  This die is among the 22 new dies available in our latest January Release ... be sure to pop over and see for yourself!  They are fantastic!

I've actually used two Tutti Designs dies on today's card.  The Easter Gate as mentioned above and also from our October Release a beautiful die called 'Flower Symphony Corner'.

No automatic alt text available.
No automatic alt text available.I was wanting to add some dimension to my Easter Gate, so instead of die cutting it 3 or 4 times, I die cut it once from white card stock and again using 3mm fun foam.   Adhered them together and Viola ... I have the dimension I was looking for.

When I die cut the Flower Symphony Corner,
I realized the one side was a little too long for my corner
and hit up against the gate arch.
A little snip and now it was the perfect size for
my corner and the snipped off piece worked beautifully
with my added flowers on the gate front.

Here's a peek at the dimension on the gate die using the fun foam . . .

Please be sure to pop over to the Tutti Designs Store and check out all of the fabulous dies in this latest release.  And, of course, you'll want to browse through the store to see what other dies you need to have on hand.

Very smart using the fun foam for the added dimension, and adding the extra flower to the gate was a great idea, too! Very pretty.

Thanks for joining us for our Bendy/Scene Card challenge at Cut it Up!

These two dies combine beautifully, and especially pretty with the papers and stamps. The fun foam gives it nice dimension. I would love to have that gate in my garden!

Hi Darlene! What a pretty card this is. I have tried the foam before with too intricate of a die and it was hard to line up. Maybe I will use thicker foam next time and a sturdier die. Love this tip! Hugs, Autumn

Beautiful, who knew we would be using this much fun foam for our cards huh, love the dimension it gives and the flowers are gorgeous and great to frame your scene, love the paper you used for your background!
