Spring is nearly here

I love Winter, the cold and the excuse to wrap up and wear too many layers. But I think like most this year a little warmer weather and the spring flowers appearing is what we all need. And of course… Easter.

I decided to make this plant pot style card, to demonstrate how cards don’t just have to be plain and simple shapes. This is a 3D card, which I have used Kraft card, which I adore to make the base, which has been embossed with a wood look folder and then added a top for the pot using a strip of card from the lovely paper range, here.

I have then added the cutest little Bunny onto the front and its been coloured with alcohol markers.

Whilst I looked at the card, I wanted to add a fun element to it, so I added some cut out carrot shapes and egg shapes to the plant pot, so it looks like they’ve grown and ready to be picked.

The top of the pot has had a lovely peach coloured Rick Rack trim to it and completed it with a simple sentiment.

Happy Pancake Day

Love love love pancakes, and one pancake day is not enough, the truth be told I made some yesterday for a snack!

I have made this Penny Slider card using the adorable SugarPop Stamp. I have coloured her in to match the bright backing papers.

I have matted the bright papers on a yellow card blank and added the penny slider element by cutting a semi circle track in the paper. I put it at the top, above the stamp so it looks like she is tossing the pancakes.

I have added the cut out pancakes from a larger stamp that I printed out, as I thought it made the Birthday Slider element.

I have then added the perfect sentiment, and some faux stitching to finish off the card 🙂

Hope you like it.
