Heartfelt Creations Alumni May Blog Hop

Hello friends! Welcome to another Heartfelt Creations Alumni Blog Hop! Spring is here and I really wanted to share a fun "garden-like" card. I created a long skinny card, this one is 3.5" top x 6" long.

Here are the details:

  • Create a card base from Texture light blue cardstock. 3.5" x 6".
  • Cut a piece of yellow textured cardstock and patterned paper from Sun Kissed Paper Collection, add a piece of yellow cardstock on top and add zig-zag stitches. Add panel to card base.
  • Stamp birdhouse image from Spring Season Set in black ink on White cardstock. colored image with markers. Here I used Spectrum Noir.
  • Cut image and mat it with a piece of yellow cardstock. Add  straight stitches. Add piece to card base.
  • Stamp open leaf and color it with markers. Die-cut it with coordinated dies.
  • Stamp Sun Kissed Fleur flowers on Purple vellum, die-cut them with Sun Kissed Fleur Die.Mount 3 flowers and add it to card. Add pearl to flower.
  • Die-cut a little butterfly from Garden Romance Die set, add it to image.
