I wanted to make some fun springtime cards to help me remember that Spring IS on the way! These are small (the larger one is about 4"), but they are filled with cheery cuteness and very easy to make.
For the label shaped one, I took a piece of cardstock 4"x8" and folded it in half. I lined the Nestabilities up on the card with the one side hanging over the fold edge. This kept it from cutting off the fold. Then, I embossed the front of the card. Cut the pp out with the next size down of label die. Tied a ribbon around it and added it to the card with pop dots. Stamped the sentiment and cut out with a smaller label die and added it to the card. Finally, I cut out some tiny butterflies from the pp and punched some small flowers and attached them to the card.
For the scalloped circle one, I did essentially the same thing only with scalloped and regular circles. I also pop dotted the sentiment circle on this one though.
Now that you have seen the eye candy, how about some blog candy?!?! Here is what I am offering this weekend:Three sets of Easter themed Studio G stamps, a small acrylic block and two packs of cute paper flower stickers. All you have to do to have a chance to win this candy is leave a comment on THIS post telling me about your favorite Easter tradition or your favorite thing about Spring. Isn't that easy? I will use random.org to choose a winner and I will announce it on Monday.
