Give a Helping Hand to a Gardener

Here is a great idea for your favorite gardener.  You could even make this into a really fun Father’s Day card by adding more masculine embellishements and a Home Depot gift card.  The “thumb” holds the seed packet or gift card.  (I just thought the primas looked good with the seed packet.)

The inside has plenty of room for a sentiment and handwritten note.

The body of the glove is cut from Natural White Elegant Laid.  To get the fabric effect, I sponged the paper with 2 different ink colors.  It also brings out the texture of the paper.  The cuff was cut from Indigo Blue Skinny columns.  Again…I love the texture on these Paper Temptress papers.  This design has so many possibilities!

    Well, aren’t you clever?! The Natural White Elegant Laid looks JUST LIKE the cotton garden gloves, especially with the “ribbed” cuff…nicely done!
