I'm also joining the current As You See It Challenge, where the theme is spring flowers and The Paper Players where the lovely Laurie has given us a great CAS challenge with "Blooms".
I used a stamp with two early Spring flowers.
I love all flowers, but I have to say crocus are my favorite early spring flowers, with daffodils and tulips a close second. The image was stamped, Copic colored and die cut with the coordinating die. To properly highlight the flowers, I decided to use a frame, which was die cut three times from white cardstock. They were adhered together then I popped the flowers through at the bottom, trimmed off the excess then adhered the bottom of the flower image to the bottom of the frame.
Next a panel of white was debossed with an A2 size cover die and adhered to the white card base. As I was determining if the main image should be tilted or straight, I realized that the debossed background looked a little busy behind the flowers. So I trimmed down a panel of light yellow cardstock and adhered that to the back of the frame, using foam squares behind the two daffodils to keep them level with the frame. I decided that a bit of a jaunty tilt would be fun, adhered the main image to the card, then added the sentiment. The final touch was to add a few clear dew drops. (I realized as I was writing this blog post, the lower right corner of the frame hadn't adhered properly to the card front, which I have now fixed lol!).
I am so glad you visited! Don't forget to use the link above to check out all the amazing cards by the other DT members and hopefully join us for this springtime color challenge!
