Spring Fling

This fortnight at Shopping Our Stash, we're celebrating the fact that is is finally Spring, woohoo! You can create any type of project, with any colors and themes, as long as it conveys "SPRING" in some way. Alternately, if you had a last-minute Easter or Passover card, you can share that. I went with spring!

k and co flower and butterfly diecuts; craft consortium "nearly solid" patterned paper; core'dinations cardstock; colorbox inks (for edging); adhesives: elmers brand gluetape, 3m foam tape, sewing machine

I *think* this is going to be a birthday card, but I'm not positive, so you'll notice there is no sentiment attached. I like to leave some of my cards undeclared until it's time to send them, because you never know when you'll need an unexpected "genre" of card at the very last minute. This was a super-fast make, unless you count the time I spent flipping through several sections of my stash, wondering what I was in the mood to use. When I found half a pack of ancient K and Co diecuts in soft blues and purples with all my favorite spring flowers, the choice became a no-brainer. I layered a few flowers for a garden-y feel, popped up a beautiful butterfly and called it good!

  1. I love the way you say "I layered a few flowers" as if it was as easy as pie, or should that be pi? A collagy, garden-y masterpiece. gorgeous colours and flowers.

  2. Beautiful, gorgeous collection of flowers and I love the wee butterfly!

  3. You are the Queen of layering Lauren, this card is so beautifully layered. Gorgeous Iris in the forefront, makes me wish I had some planted in my flower beds.
