Happy Spring Card

This one I had a little fun with. ;)

Supply List:

Main Cardstock cut at 5.5 in x 4.25 in (lavendar)

Layer Cardstock cut at 5.25 in x 4 in (grey)


2nd Layer Cardstock cut at 2.75 in x 5.5 in, folded in half (dark blue)

3rd Layer Cardstock cut at 2.5 in x 2.5 in (light grey)

Final Layer Cardstock cut at 2.25 in x 2.25 in (white)

Okay...so I started simple with stamping the image onto the white cardstock. For this one I used the stamp set "Tree for all Seasons" by Stampin' Up! I colored in the image to bring it a springy feel. Next the punched the corner the a Ticket Punch (also from SU). I layered on the the light grey CS and punched the corners out as well. Then I layered that onto the dark blue CS, this makes it a mini card. For a little added fun I punched the corners on this as well. Then on the grey layer of the CS I put a bit of ribbon off centered and made a bow. I then layered on the the main lavendar CS. 

I placed the mini card on the layered to card. To finish it off I did some siggly lines around the white cardstock and a hand written greeting on the inside.

I wanted a simple spring card. With the mini card being where you put the greeting this makes it easy to send off to friends and family. It can easily be changed for a birthday or get well card as well.

I hope this put your imagination into gear,

Thanks for stopping by.
