Spring has Sprung

     Hello, it is the first full weekend of spring and it is completely overcast outside.  So I have been making cards today.  Yesterday I went to my card club, I can't tell you how much I enjoy that fellowship each month and we actually make some beautiful cards. !!! BONUS!!!  My inspiration for the cards you are about to see came from all over, card club, pinterest, etc. ,  As always I adapt them to the products I have on hand and the colors I like.  I hope you like what you see and if you have any questions I try to check the blog often to answer as many as I can.

Supplies Needed
  • Basic Black, Crisp Cantaloupe, Whisper While card stock.
  • Sweet Sorbet DSP.
  • White Embossing Powder, and VersaMark ink, heat gun.
  • Momento Black,  and Stampin Write Markers in coordinating colors.

The card base is an A2 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.  The crisp cantaloupe is 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 for large. and 2 7/8 x 3 3/4 for small, the DSP 4 x 5 1/4, the small black is 2 3/4 x 3 5/8. and the white 2 5/8 x 3 1/2. All layers are flat. I stamped extra flower on a scrap piece of white,  colored and cut it out.  Banner made by putting only one side into punch so length is no issue.  I hope the dimensions help.

Attach the very back 2 inch strip to the grey only gluing it down.  Center the framelit on front of card and run through the big shot, and then run the daffodil delight with same framelit. Trim the gray square you have 1/8 inch on both sides to keep square. Fold white card stock inside, attach the yellow piece with glue only on one half down to the white that is showing through the window when card folded.  The small white piece is cut at 2 1/4 inch square.
