Spring is Here!

 Hello Scrapping Cottage Friends,

It is Pam creating with you on the blog today!

I am so glad spring has sprung!  Even though I live in Arizona and it never really gets cold I love the spring flowers.  We have a huge variety of cacti and some of the flowers on these plants are just gorgeous!  

The card design I am using today was inspired by a card I made in a class with Donna West.  I loved the card so much I wanted to create one of my own.

This card can be used for a spring hello card or for an Easter card which by the way is right around the corner.  

Design Steps

1.  Using the Bunnies in Pots die cut out all of the pieces using rust, brown, pink, and blue card stock
2.  Shade the pieces with a variety of inks and then assemble with a fine tip glue
3.  For the card base I used a white A2 card and cut a circle in the middle using the 3rd from the largest Pierced Circle die.  Inside is a 4 x 5 1/4 piece of dotted DP, the front flowered DP is 4 x 5 1/4 cut with the second from the largest Pierced Circle die.  Next cut a white piece of card stock using the largest Stitched Scallop die.  Last cut a strip of dotted DP 4 x 1 1/4
4.  Glue the 4 x 1 1/4 inch dotted DP to the lower half of the front of the flowered DP.  Add the twine to the middle of the strip as shown.  Then glue the panel to the front of the A2 white card base
5.  On the inside Glue the dotted piece of 4 x 5 1/4 DP.  Next glue down the scalloped circle lining it up with the front circle

6.  Create the clouds with a sencil and some blue ink.  Using the Spring Grass die cut a strip of grass.  Cut a small piece of the grass off and then glue it to the scalloped circle making sure you card see it when the card is closed.  Cut a sun using the The Rooster and Chick die then glue it as shown.  Add the pots with the bunnies.  Using the die Hugs cut it out of white 3 times.  Glue them together and pop dot to the front of the card. To complete the card and add the twine bow
