Spring is Here!

Good Morning Friends

It is Pam getting crafty with you today!

It has been such beautiful weather here in South Carolina that I have been able to clean out my flower beds.  We had a cold winter and even snow.  So some of the more tropical plants didn't make a come back this spring.  I am going to have to pick some new plants to replace the ones that didn't make it.  So with plants on my mind that was my inspiration for my card this week!
 Design Steps:
1.  Cut out the water can in silver metallic paper using the Spring Watering Can die.  Next cut out all of the flowers and leaves in white using the same die.  I cut out 2 each of the flowers and 3 of the leaf stems.
2.  Color the flowers and leaves using copic makers. Add shading to the watering can using copics
3.  Tape the leaves and flowers to the back of the watering can
4.  Cut the hello using the Hello Spring die.  I cut one in yellow and one in gray.  Glue the gray one in the back of the yellow one slightly off center.  Also cut a frame using the Pierced Wide Rectangle Frames dies the second from the largest in vanilla card stock
5.  Use a vanilla A2 card base a yellow piece cut to 4 x 5 1/4 and a piece of DP 3 3/4  x 5.  Make sure to add the ribbon before you glue the panel to the front of the card. Add the vanilla frame to the card just slightly to the left of center
6.  Add the watering can onto the frame as shown
7.  Place the hello to the upper right side of the card and it is complete

Love your card, Pam! Spring is here in some parts of the country, not so much in others. Your card will give those folks something to look forward to!

Hi Pam! Your coloring is so perfect and I really like the total change in colors from how it is pictured on the package. I like that too but you show a completely different color scheme and it's wonderful! -Janet
