A Breath of Spring

Hello My Crafty Friends!

Finally the daffodils are blooming and tulips are starting to put on buds - Spring has finally arrived here in Maine.

Today my card is one that a friend has requested for her mother.  I have chosen several spring flowers from several Spellbinders Susan's Garden releases to create my card.  For my card I have used S4-1085 Lily of the Valley from Spring flora, S4-1175 Lilac from Garden Favorites, S2-340 Forget Me Not from Garden Gate and S5-470 Vase, Daffodil & Narcissus from Summer Flora.  The card base is one I have done before using other shapes for window Sam Calcott has a YouTube video for it (Acetate Hexagon Card) you can find it here.  I chose to do circle instead of hexagon and cut my cardstock 7" square and circles were 4-3/4" and 3-3/4".  I created a box for the card using  Donna Griffith's How to make your own custom sized boxes YouTube video found here it is a great video.  I chose to add a framed window in top of lid.  To do that cut the hole before constructing box and I used acetate for window.

This are the flowers I used and links to the how to videos for each
S4-1085 Lily of the Valley video
S4-1175 Lilac video
S2-340 Forget Me Not video
S5-Daffodil & Narcissus video

I created 2 each of the daffodil, Forget Me Not and Lily of the Valley and 1 each of the Lilac and Narcissus.  

Spellbinders Susan's Garden Specialty Paper and Deluxe Tool Kit were used to create my flowers.  Once flowers were completed I tried sever different arrangements  taking pictures of each until I liked it then adhered using Kids Choice Glue.

The sentiment was printed onto cardstock from my computer cut and adhered to card front using Bearly Art Glue.

I really hope that I have inspired you to make your own Breath of Spring Card.  This card base is one of my favorites to make.

Thanks for stopping by today and until next time - Happy Creating!


You only live once if you live right once is enough!
