Spring Card

Spring has sprung!  For me that means allergies and tornado warnings.  What does it mean for you?  I like spring weather, not as much as winter or fall, but it certainly beats summer.  I despise being hot and would love to skip summer altogether…  Of course, summer probably wouldn’t be so bad if it didn’t get to 105+ degrees here! 

This springy card was made using the Flower Shoppe cartridge.  The patterned paper is from the Rhapsody stack by Colorbok from Walmart.  For the leaves I used some cardstock by The Paper Studio.  The card was cut to fit in a #10 business envelope.  (Cut sizes are below)

The flowers and leaves are from Flower Shoppe.  I cut each flower shape several times and layered them on the leaves.  I added a button and some twine to the center.

Each flower was put on using an Action Wobble.  It's a pretty cool effect to have 3 flowers all wobbling at once.  It's super fun!  Ready for an action shot?

You knew I had to do it, didn't ya?  I am not good enough to get a picture of all 3 wobbling at once, sadly.  As you can see in the lower right corner, I stamped the sentiment in light blue ink.  Once it was done, I decided the ink was too light but had to either leave it or make the card all over again.  I left it!
