Spring Blossoms

Spring Blossoms
Welcome My Crafty Friends,

Here in Maine it is still snowy and very cold I for one am dreaming of Spring and warmer days that bring spring flowers,  I see all these pictures of flowers on Facebook which has inspired my card today.   Here is my inspiration picture for my card.

Image may contain: flower and plant

Here is how I created my card.

Step 1  Form 6X6  card base from white Soft Finish Cardstock.  Cut 5-3/4 X 5-3/4 patterned paper (Through the Lens - Woods used here) adhere to card front using Clear Double Sided Adhesive.

Step 2 From Clear Sticker Paper cut 2 canning jars using Susan's Garden Canning Jar & Lid set.  Using blue alcohol marker color front of one jar adhere second jar on top of colored.

Step 3  Create flowers approximately 15 cutting from 85# white Soft Finish Cardstock using Garden Notes Flowering Trees (Susan Garden Cherry Blossoms actually used here but is sold out).  Cut 1 of the 3 petal and 2 of the 2 petal for each flower along with 1 stamen.  Cut bunch of leaves from green cardstock  and stems from white cardstock then color with alcohol markers or can cut from brown cardstock.  I double up stems to give more dimension.

Step 4  remove protective paper on back of jar insert stems down top of jar adhere to back of jar.  I cut some branches apart so as to manipulate to where I wanted them.  Add couple pop dots to back of stems in center adhere jar to left side of card.

Step 5  Adhere flowers and leaves to stems using Kids Choice Glue.

Step 6  Using Els Van de Burgt Studio Stitched Ovals cut smallest oval from white Soft Finish Cardstock.

Step 7  Using black ink stamp oval with sentiment.  Susan's Garden Take Time stamp used here but it is sold out.    Adhere to right side of card.

I do hope you have enjoyed my card today and will make your own.  For any of the Elizabeth Craft Designs products I used I have linked them below just click on any picture it will take you directly to their site.

Thank you for stopping by today and until next time - Happy Crafting!

  1. Had to look hard to find the jar it looks so real...clear. But..I have to admit it drives me crazy when a card is shown and the die or stamp is sold out or no longer avalible. Not that you have any control over the situation. lol

  2. Yes Beverly hard to see jar should have had different background. I know it is frustrating when something is used but it is not available but there is new die that will work just as well.
