How To Create This Happy Spring Card

April 24, 2019

Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my Happy Spring Card. Spring is definitely here on the west coast of Canada and has been providing a ton of inspiration for my projects these days.

To create this card, I’ve used dies and patterned paper from ModaScrap as well as a stamp set from Joset Designs. I hope that you enjoy my tutorial!

Step 1. From the Blue Cotton Candy Paper Pack, you’ll need the white flower kraft patterned paper. Die cut the 4″ Dashing Rectangle out of the patterned paper piece. Ink the edges of the paper using Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step 2. Die cut the 3 1/2″ Dashing Rectangle out of the White Soft Finish Cardstock. Sprinkle Aquamarine and Jade Magenta Nuance lightly in the middle of the rectangle piece. Spritz the powder with water. Once the paper has dried, ink the edges of the paper using Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step 3. Die cut the 2 1/4″ Dashing Circle out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Apply Cottage Ivy Memento Ink to the branch stamp from the Wedding Sentiments stamp set and start stamping in the circle. Reapply ink the branch as many time as needed to complete a circle of branches.

Step 4. Apply Onyx Black Versafine Ink to the Happy Spring stamp from the Spring Sentiments stamp set and stamp in the center of the circle. Add a Transp.Glitter/Gold Dot in between each stamped branch in the circle. Ink the edges of the circle using Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step 5. From the Wood Effect Paper Pack, you’ll need to choose one of the wood patterned papers. Die cut the 2 3/4″ Dashing Circle out of the patterned paper piece. Ink the edges of the paper using Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step 6. Die cut the Lace card out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Cut the Lace card down to 4″.

Step 7. Die cut the three Dragonflies out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Lightly sprinkle Jade and Aquamarine Magenta Nuance powder overtop of the dragonflies. Spritz the powder with water.

Step 8. Adhere the 3 1/2″ Dashing Rectangle piece to the 4″ Dashing Rectangle piece. Adhere the lace card element to the left hand side of the 4″ Dashing Rectangle.

Step 9. Adhere the Happy Spring circle to the wood circle. Foam square the wood circle 1 1/8″ from the left and 3/4″ from the top of the 4″ Dashing Rectangle.

Step 10. Adhere the dragonflies as desired around the Happy Spring circle. To finish off the card, cut a cardbase out of White Soft Finish Cardstock that measures 4″ x 10 1/2″, score at 5 1/4″. Adhere the card front to the card base.

Thanks for joining me today. I hope that I’ve inspired you to create your own version of my Happy Spring Card.

November 18, 2017

Hello!  Diana here today to share with you a card that is just fun to make.  One of the best things about card making is how personalized you can get with it if you know your recipient well.  And just in case the color combo, dragonflies, and glitter don’t make the person I have in mind know that this was especially made for her, I added “Just for You” for good measure.  Subtle, right? Read on to find out how I made this soft and dreamy card.
