Die Cut Arbor and Gate Scene

Good Sunday morning.  I have a pretty die cut arbor and gate scene to share with you today.  This is a sneak peek of the new Rubbernecker Stamps Gate and Arbor die set.  I paired the arbor set with a branch from the Tree Panel #2, Cats, Small Ivy, Small Butterflies and Tiny Flower Buds.  I framed the scene using the Nested Rectangle Scallop w/ Holes  and Nested Rectangles.

Come check out how I made this die cut arbor and gate scene card.

The Frame and Grass

  • Cut the nested scalloped layer using white cardstock.
  • Place the scalloped layer on the magnetic platform, secure the nested rectangle die in place on the paper and run through the machine to cut the frame opening.
  • Cut a grass section and tree panel using green cardstock.
  • Apply double stick tape to the bottom and top backside of the frame and attach the grass section at the bottom and a trimmed branch at the top.
  • Apply thin strips of mounting tape to the frame.
  • Cut a blue rectangle layer for the background of the scene and attach it to the back of the frame.
  • Apply double stick tape to the back of the frame layer and attach it ti the card base.

The Gate and Arbor

  • Cut the arbor and two gate sections using white cardstock.
  • Cut the hinges and handle using black cardstock.
  • Attach the hinges to the gate and arbor sections using glossy accents.
  • Attach the handle using glossy accents. 
  • Cut two slat sections off the second gate for each side of the arbor and attach them using glossy accents.
  • Apply thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the arbor and gate sections and tuck it in behind the grass and attach.

The Ivy, Flowers, Butterflies and Cats

  • Cut two sections of the ivy using green cardstock.
  • Cut two sections of tiny flower buds and a section of butterflies using pink cardstock and form them using a tiny tipped stylus and molding pad.
  • Cut the cats using white cardstock and apply the black markings using a Copic marker.
  • Attach the ivy sections to the arbor and to both sides of the arbor gate using glossy accents.
  • Attach the flowers to the ivy using glossy accents.
  • Apply pieces of mounting tape to the back of the cats and attach them in the scene.
  • Finish the scene by attaching butterflies using glossy accents.

I had so much fun creating this pretty die cut arbor and gate scene with the cats and butterflies.  I think the cats looks like they’re moving in the scene.  One is jumping up to walk along the top of the fence and one is chasing a bug of some kind.  I liked making the cats black and white to match the gate and handles.  Thanks so much for coming by and I hope you have a great Sunday.

Die Cut Scene with Cats

My project today is a fun out of the box die cut scene with cats framed with a large grouping of circles. The scene was made using Rubbernecker 5117D Bubbles Die, 5142-09 Cats, 5140-01D Upper Case Alpha w/ Stitch, 5140-02D Lower Case Alpha w/ Stitch and 5100-14D Heart Outline Stitch.

Coloring the Die Cut Cats

I cut out the cats die a couple of times using white cardstock.  I knew I may need to duplicate one or two of the cats for m scene and also that I may mess one or two of them up.  I created several different color cats mainly using distress inks and mini applicators. I created the all black  and black and white cats using a black Copic marker. 

Creating the Die Cut Scene Layout

The bubbles die is quite large so I created a 6″ x 6″ card base.  I laid the bubbles in the center of the card base to get an idea of how much space I needed between the gingham layers.  The gingham layers are each 1.50″ deep and leave a space of 3″ for the bubbles frame.  The gingham layers were attached to the card base using strips of mounting tape.  The bubbles frame was attached using a combination of tiny pieces of mounting tape and rolled glue dots.

A die cut scene with cats makes a great card for children.

Completing the Die Cut Scene

All the cats, heart and alphabet pieces were attached to the care base and gingham layers using pieces of mounting tape.  I thought the bubbles and cats looked a little pale against the all white background so I added a few red negative dots back into the frame and attached them with pieces of mounting tape.

A die cut scene with cats makes a great card for children.

For those of you who have cats you know they can walk around on almost anything in the house so walking around on the bubble frame really isn’t too far fetched.  LOL!  I hope you have enjoyed my crazy card and have been inspired to think out of the box to create your own die cut scene with cats.
