Grateful for Summer Blooms

Hi, everyone! Today, I am sharing a new card that I created using a newly released image called Summer Blooms from All Dressed Up Digital Stamps.

After coloring up the image with Copics, I had an idea to make this image more 3-dimensional using an easel card die set that I had in my stash. I thought it would look really cool if the shutters could fold so that's what I did. I fussy cut the image and added score lines.

The bottom part of the image was a tad too long so I also scored it at about a 1/4 inch and used this piece to help stand the card up. To allow the shutters to pop up, I had to trim the hanging baskets off. These were then popped up with foam tape just below the shutter to the right and the watering can to the left.

Background: B00, B000, B0000, 0
Skin: E00, E21, E11, E04
Hair, Shutters, Window Box: E44, E43, E42
Grateful Word Die: E42
Flowers: R27, R24, R22, RV34, RV32, Y19, Y15, Y11
Leaves: G05, G02
Watering Can: C5, C3, C1, C00
