Hello friends and welcome back! I hope you're doing well. Today I'm sharing a card that I was inspired to make by three challenges, one a sketch challenge and two with spring themes.
When I saw the sketch I thought of a stamp set that would work perfectly for the strip at the bottom and would incorporate lots of spring colors and flowers.
I love the variety of flowers in this stamp and it worked perfectly to incorporate lots of bright colors. It was colored with Copic markers then cut out with the matching die. For the background, a panel of white card stock was gently ink blended with a light green from the bottom to the middle and then a bit of light blue at the top. I ended up trimming it down to 3.5" x 4.75", added the flowers with foam tape then trimmed off the ends of the stamped image in order to fit the panel size.
The panel was matted on a slightly larger die cut piece of white card stock, then adhered to the blue card base with foam tape. After adding the sentiment to the panel with foam tape I thought I was done but felt the card was lacking something. So I searched through my stamp sets and found this sweet butterfly left over unused from another project and adhered it to the panel to finish things off!
So glad you made time to visit, I always appreciate it! Take care and have a great week!
