Spring in Your Step
Hello, crafters! Spring is in the air but, believe it or not, some areas have had snow. But I'm thinking "spring" and created this card for April's final Twisted Thursday "Anything Goes" challenge at The Outlawz.
I love Japanese Cherry Blossoms and even have a photo of them on my desktop. So I decided to use them in my card project.
I began by preparing my base card in white, sized to 5.25 x 5.25 inches. Because of the dies that I was planning to use, I knew what size base card I would need for this project.
Next, I cut a 5x5 inch square panel in brown card stock and die cut it using the largest die from Marianne Creatables Anja's Squares. This was adhered to my base.
Now I worked on my focal image panel. I cut a 5x5 inch square panel in white card stock. I stamped my image, a Rubber Stampede stamp, on the left edge of the panel and colored it with Copics. I added glitter to each flower petal. Using the second largest die from the same Marianne Creatables die set, I cut and embossed this panel and then adhered it to the base card.
I created the sentiment on my computer and then cut it with Spellbinders A2 Distressed Edges die. While still in the die, I sponged it with Memento Angel Pink ink. After removing it from the die, I popped it on my focal panel with dimensionals.
This completed my project. I love how the blossoms sparkle, especially when held under a light. It is so pretty!
