- Die cut pieces as shown. Make sure to emboss the fence, arbor and post caps to bring out the additional embossed and debossed areas. Attach arbor (arch) to top of each fence behind the posts. Cut tabs off 2 of the fences; these will be for the front and back of the 3D Vignette.
- Fold 3D Vignette pieces on perforations and attach liner tape to the folded tabs. You can have the back piece face forward with all the other layers, or create a garden gate on the back by facing the back piece outward. After attaching the back layer to one of the Vignette pieces, place 3 interior layers into slots, Repeat with other side. Decorate top layer before adding to the 3D Vignette. Glue fence overlay to the two sides of the 3D Vignette pieces.
- Layer hinges (black on bottom, kraft on top) and attach to gate. Attach latch hook on left side of gate where hole is located using black brad. Line up other part of latch across from the hook so it can slide into slots. Tip: Place hook into slots first. then glue down. Place layered fence post pieces in place on front layer of die cut posts. Leaves: To create dimension, use middle sized stylus to curl leaves a little. Flowers: Turn over and cup flowers with stylus. Turn flower over and press in middle. This will give them some added dimension. Attach or glue flower centers. Tip: Instead of crystal rhinestones, use die cut flower centers or flat back pearls! Sign: Die cut and stamp sentiment; add small jump rings into the holes (or use string or twine). Hang from the smaller filigree that is part of the gate arbor.
- Glue down arbor leaves using largest leaf stem, overlaying to create a fuller effect. Glue on flowers as desired. On your work surface, arrange the curved leaf stems to create a wreath. Overlap to create a fuller effect and glue together. Glue on flowers and then adhere wreath to gate. Tip: To make even fuller, add some of the smaller stems. Create a group of flower stems using the large and small leaf stems. Glue together; add flowers and place to either side (or both!) of gate.
Option: Die cut grass and place in front of gate.
This can be flattened to mail, but a padded mailer is recommended.
