Today I’m sharing a die cut lamp post and fence card with lots of colorful tulips in the hanging basket and along the fence line. I used the Rubbernecker Stamps Lamp Post, Tulip Tops, Tulip Stems, Knob Top Fence, Stitched Hills, Grass #2, Small Butterflies, Small Ivy and the Nested Rectangle Scallops w Holes. I especially love how the colors of the tulips and grass pop against the crisp all white background.
The Scalloped Layers and Fence
- Cut the scalloped layer using white cardstock.
- Use green cardstock to cut the stitched hill section.
- Use the scalloped die to cut the bottom of the stitched hill section so it will match the white layer.
- Apply strips of mounting tape to the back of the white scalloped layer and attach to the card base.
- Cut the fence sections using black cardstock.
- Attach the fence sections to the back of the stitched hill section using double stick tape.
- Apply strips of mounting tape to the back of the stitched hill and fence and attach to the white layer.
The Lamp Pot and Tulip Basket
- Cut the lamp post and basket using black cardstock.
- Apply thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the [post and attach it to the card base.
- Cut the tulips using bright pink, pink, purple and yellow cardstock.
- Use green cardstock to cut the small ivy sections and tulip stems.
- Attach the tulip tops to the tulip stems using glossy accents.
- Attach the tulip stems and small ivy to the back of the basket using glossy accents.
- Apply a piece of mounting tape to the back of the basket and attach it to the card base.
The Tulips, Grass and Butterflies
- Tuck the tulip stems in behind the stitched hill section and attach using glossy accents.
- Use green cardstock to cut the grass sprigs.
- Tuck the grass sprigs in behind the stitched hills section and arrange them around the tulips and attach with glossy accents.
- Cut the small butterflies using purple cardstock and attach them to the card base using glossy accents.
This die cut lamp post and fence card was pretty fast and easy to make. I especially like how the green stitched layer matches up with the scalloped layer. Check out this Pinterest link to see lots of lamp post card inspiration. Thank you for coming by today and I hope you have a great week.
