Spring Time

Hello Friends,

It is Pam sharing with you today.

I thought I would make a few spring cards for my family who have had a rough winter back in Ohio and New York.  I must say I love Arizona winters!  No snow to shovel and no winter coats for me!  I guess our extremely hot summers are our winters.  We stay inside during the summer and play during our winter!!

This card was inspired by a beautiful card by Wanda Guess.  The design and dies are a little different but I really love how it turned out.  I used a larger card to accomodate the dies I chose.  It is a 5 x 7 card.  The dies I am featuring are Nest with EggsSpring BunniesSpring Daffodils & Eggs,  Hello Spring BloomGarden Butterflies and Bees and Bird Trio.

                                                                                                                      Background Photo Freepiks 

Design Steps:
1.  White base card is 5 x 7 when folded, kraft card stock 4 7/8 x 6 7/8 and white card stock 4 3/4 x 6 3/4
2.  Using the Pierced Square Set the 6th, 7th and 8th from the largest square cut out the squares in white.  Using the Pierced Rectangle Set the 4th and 5th from the largest rectangle cut out the retangles in white
3.  Use a blending brushe and blue ink to cover the top half of the rectangles and squares as shown above
4.  Take the white piece of card stock measuring 4 3/4 x 6 3/4 and lay out the retangles and squares as shown above.  When you have them as you like place dimension tape on the back of the retangles and squares then pop them to the white panel

5.  Using the Nest with Eggs die cut out the nest in kraft and the eggs in white.  Using the Spring Bunnies cut out the sitting bunny in Kraft.  Using the Bird Trio cut it out in white.  Using the Spring Daffodils & Eggs die cut it out in white.  Using the Hello Spring Bloom cut the word spring out twice in black and glue together.  Using the Garden Butterflies and Bees cut the butterfly out in kraft and white
6.  Use Copics and inks to color the dies and then glue together as shown above
7.  Glue the dies to the retangles and squares as shown above.  Splatter the card with white and blue ink. Add a little stamp sentiment that says time.  Glue the panel to the 4 7/8 x 6 7/8 kraft card stock and then onto the card base.  Your card is complete
