Gran's Chair by Sparkle N Sprinkle is perfect for the grandparents in your life. It has sentiments for both a grandmother and a grandfather. I have to warn you that lots of dies were used in this creation - but it was so fun to see my idea bloom into reality :-).
Sunny Daze glitter added to them.
The arch and trellis, from Impression Obsession, was die cut twice so I could could cut off the flower box at the bottom and add pop dots to it. All three pieces were covered with VersaMark and heat set using Sparkle embossing powder.
For all the flowers and vines on the trellis, I used quite a few dies and glitters. The vines are from Memory Box (Savannah Border) and Cheery Lynn Designs (Mini Flourish One) and the flowers are all from different sets of Susan's Garden by Sizzix (Yarrow, Sunflower, Forsythia).
I added my glitter colors (Impulsive Purple, Mauvelous, and Carnation) to strips of Sticker Paper and then die cut each individual flower. I adhered them to the trellis with small dabs of Dimensional Glue.
The edges of both cardstock panels were distressed with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink. The die frame between the layers and the sentiment frame (which are both pop dotted), is a new die in my collection from Creative Expressions called Spanish Collection-Granada.
The sentiment was heat embossed onto the smallest frame in this set with Caramel embossing powder. This is a Cosmic embossing powder, so it leaves a little bit of shimmer on the cardstock. You could either wipe it off with your fingertip or leave it. I left it on because it enhanced the details of the die cut.
