For You My Friend

Hello, fellow crafters!  As in many other states it is snowing here in Ohio. I think this is the longest winter in recent history. The four seasons this year will be: winter, summer, fall and winter. LOL

With wishful thinking, I made a spring-like card today for a challenge at Joan's Touch. The challenge required making a pink and white card, using lattice and adding a flower.

My base card was made in pink card stock. I cut a white piece of card stock for my focal point panel and cut out a rectangle shape in the center using a die from Spellbinders Matting Basic A. Next, I embossed that panel with a die from Spellbinders Timeless Rectangles, positioning it on the cut out rectangle. I used a Cheery Lynn French Lattice die to create the lattice and adhered it to the back of the white panel. This was then matted with white card stock and popped on to the pink base card with dimensionals.

The flower was created with Marianne Creatables Flowers Fantasy in pink dotted Swiss paper, a pearl was added to the center and then the flower was adhered to the focal point panel. I added some greenery using Poppy Stamps Pine Sprigs and Cheery Lynn Fanciful Flourish dies.

Thank you for visiting! Please stop by again for more creations.

Your card is just lovely Olga. I love the texture and dimension, and the beautiful soft colors. I saw a funny thing on a marque the other day. It said, "New season - spinter." Spring and winter combined - lol. I think they are on to something!!!
