Secret Garden Card Inspiration with Rebecca

Hello, everyone! It's Rebecca here today hosting the blog post. Secret Garden is such a great collection to create quick and easy cards. I am showcasing three cards today using this lush, rich in color, collection.



Left side card instructions:
  • Cut card base at 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 from white cardstock.
  • Cut 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 from 104 and ink edges. Attach to card base.
  • Die cut frame and a coordinating die for sentiment from 101, (I free hand cut leaves from scraps and added veins using a stylist.)
  • Die cut centerpiece from 104.
  • Glue centerpiece to inside frame, stamp sentiment on white and attach to die cut piece.
  • Add flowers, ribbon, butterflies and half-backed pearls.


Right side card instructions:
  • Cut card base from white cardstock at 4 1/4 x 5 1/2
  • Cut 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 from 101 and attach to card base.
  • Cut 4 1/8 x 5 1/4 mat from dark blue cardstock and attach to card base.
  • Die cut frame from 102 and attach to card.
  • Cut a strip from 103 and attach to center of card.
  • Die cut centerpiece from dark blue cardstock and third die cut from 101. Layer both pieces together and attach to card.
  • Die cut a flourish and flowers from scrap of 102.
  • Attach flowers, flourishes, sentiment and pearls as shown.




                                           The third card is called an impossible card. 




  • Measure the center of the top and sides of a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 piece of 104 (white was used for demonstration purposes)
  • Draw line with pencil from side to side (2 1/8)
  • Draw line from 2 3/4 center to line in the middle of card.
  • Measure each side 1 inch from both sides. Draw line to center line. 
  • Cut on lines to center as shown



  • Take one side of 2 3/4 piece and twist it from the center point to line up to the edge.
  • Repeat step for the second 2 3/4 piece


  • Your piece should look like the above photo.
  • You can mat and decorate as you wish.
