Memory Box Park Bench Card

This was the least favorite of of the die cards I have made so far and not really sure why I don't care for it, maybe it is because the bench is too big for the card or, the papers I chose just don't seem right.

Supplies Used:

Memory Box Dies -
   Madison Park Bench, Estate Fence,Wildflower Patch
   Tall Birch, Butterfly Sprinkles
Stampin Up -
   Flamingo Lingo sentiment and die
Various cardstock and patterned paper

Let me tell ya that dang fence was a B I T C H to glue because of the fine detail and again I was glad I had my Fineline Glue Applicator to use and even then I got glue all over my fingers and the cardstock and afterwards I was glad I used it. The leaves on the trees are actually from a die I can't find the name of yet *okie thinks she needs to start that search again* but I did cut the leaves away from the branch to use with the birch tree.

I used some Colorbox Chalk Ink in Chestnut Roan *okie thinks that has to be her all time favorite ink to use for shading* and went over the bench seat lightly to give the bench a more wooden look.

I have two more die cards I will be posting and then I'll be moving on to something else. The next two cards I really liked!


  1. I'm not sure why you aren't excited over this card, I think it's lovely. It looks so peaceful, yet warm and inviting. I love your amazing details with the tree, leaves, flowers, butterflies, bench and fence, but whoa, what a lot of tiny bits to piece together. I can totally see why it might have left you with glue all over your fingers. The end results are so beautiful ... I'd love to be sitting on that bench, chatting with a good friend, just enjoying the day.

  2. Another cute card, love it! Thanks for reminding me that I have a bench die that I haven't used.
