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.
