Stampin’ Up! cheerful spring card

Posted by on January 20, 2013 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

Are you ready for Spring?  This card will bring a little spring to someone special 🙂  It’s also the make-n-take for Monday, January 21st at Cottage Crafts in San Jose.  I’ll be there from 11:30-1:30 🙂

This bold color combination is Basic Black, Daffodil Delight, and Whisper White.  The new Honeycomb Embossing folder from the Spring Mini Catalog is the perfect background for the cute little bee from “Spring Sampler” (also from the Spring Mini).  The bold greeting is from the “Lacy & Lovely” stamp set in the big Stampin’ Up! catalog.  Both of these images were stamped in Black Stazon on Whisper White and then punched with the 2 1/2″ Circle Punch.  I used the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border punch to create a decorative strip of Whisper White cardstock to add to the left side of the card.  I think that little bit of white was needed to offset the large Whisper White circle.  Daffodil Delight Seam Binding ties a pretty bow to finish off the card.  Do you notice the sparkle on the bee’s wings?  Just a little bit of Dazzling Details 🙂
