Hello and Happy Monday to everyone! Today, is my day to post for The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store and I have a pretty Spring card to share with you. I'm not sure how everyone else is feeling but I know I am ready for Spring and some warmer temperatures. But I know that's a long ways off so I thought why not create something with some pretty Spring colors.
To create my card I used some of the beautiful Graphic 45 Secret Garden pattern papers. I love the little floral images! I fussy cut the images and then I distressed the edges a little. The base of the card is purple with a white mat and then I used the largest die template in the S5-217 A2 Valiant Honor set to create a die cut and add another layer. I used the lavender pattern paper for that layer. Then I used white cardstock and the smaller die template from the same set to die cut another decorative rectangle. I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pad- Antique Linen to lightly ink the edges. I also used the S5-220 Architectural Accents die template to create some flourishes. I used some green pattern paper for the flourishes and I lightly sanded the die cuts to make the embossing pop a little more. Then I layered the floral images on top and used 3D Foam Squares to add a little dimension.
Here is a close up of the flourishes and the floral images.
To finish off the card I added a Seam Binding-Lavender bow and a pretty resin piece from Webster's Pages Postcards from Paris II-Perfect Accents. I used a little hot glue to adhere the resin piece.
As always you can click on all the photos to enlarge them and all of the supplies are listed below with links.
I hope you had a wonderful weekend!
