Spring! - Crafty Bloggers Network

Hello All,

Here is my DT card for the Crafty Bloggers Network Challenge Blog.  The theme this time is Springtime.

The Hearts Canopy  was cut into some green gingham card using a MemoryBox die. Some bright pink card was attached to the back of the gingham card and the 'Twiggy' tree trunk  was stamped on the front in brown ink to complete the tree effect.  A ribbon in  pale green organza with white flowers on it was atttached to the bottom of the gingham card and the letter S P R NG were added in bright yellow card, the tree trunk replaced the missing I.  The card was finshed with a green and white bow with a dark green button in the centre. The tree reminds of the first signs of Spring, when the Cherry Blossom tree bursts into bloom.

The 'Twiggy' tree stamp was made using the MemoyBox die of the same name and cutting the shape out of foam. I then glue the cut out foam shape to a clear block and, Voila! I have a stamp of the die-cut.  Cool !

Thanks for stopping by to read my crafty blog. I appreciate your time and your comments.

    1. Hi Lindsay, the 'canopy' is made with a MemoryBox die that creates this effect when you run it through a Big Shot. I've bought the die and I hope to get a lot of use out of it:)

  4. A gorgeous card Angela! I love that tree and how you have incorporated the word "spring" using the tree as the "I".
