Whimsical Garden with Art Impressions

Hi everyone! I'm excited to share my very first creation as a member of the Art Impressions design team. A little while ago Art Impressions shared sneak peaks of some of our challenge creations, I wanted to share this card as my first blog post so I can provide some extra details on how I created it. This beautiful card features the Holiday Mansion Set and the HM Garden Set from Art Impressions. This card is also featured on the Art Impressions blog today, check it out here!
First, I cut the card base to 5 1/2" x 8 1/2". The side step portion of the card is 2" wide and the center fold of the card is scored at 4 1/4". For more details on how to make a side step card check out this tutorial from All That Scraps Blog here.
To create the sky I ink blended some clouds with the Cloud Stencil and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink. To create the ground I die cut two pieces of grassy borders from solid green cardstock. I also used my Copic Sketch E80's series markers to create the ground and the dirt in the garden. I used the WC Fence dies to create the garden area. 

I stamped the Holiday Mansion and HM Garden images with Memento Tuxedo black ink and colored them with my Copic sketch markers. I used the BG10's series to color the house. I colored the rest of the images in pinks, purples, and yellows to contrast from the teal.
I stamped the "Your friendship makes my heart sing!" sentiment inside the door flap. I adhered the birds and garden decor throughout the house and garden and add extra pops of color. The side step card design worked perfectly for this HM Garden card! The garden layout looks great even when the card is laying flat!
Thank you for stopping by my blog today. Check back next week for more Ai inspiration!
