Today I have a "springy" card to show you. (I'm sharing it at My Craft Spot too!) Here in my part of Canada, we've had a very snowy February and I am more than ready for spring! In fact, we had another huge dumping yesterday. The only good thing about our weather is all the unexpected "snow days" (days off due to all the snow)!
I created my card using my new embossing folder from Stampin' Up. (I'm linking this to Little Scrap Piece's Emboss It Challenge.) Using my Gypsy, I resized some little hexigons from Accent Essentials to fit the embossed centers of my mat. I used several pieces of scrap paper to vary the colours and patterns. I also used Accent Essentials to create the little border at the side of my card and then handstitched the zigzag in blue, using We R Memory Keepers Sew Easy kit to create the pattern.
The little sentiment tag was handcut (using a square punch on the diagonal for the pennant end). I stamped the tag with a fun sentiment from My Craft Spot's Sweet Sentiments - Set #2. My little bee is from Walk in my Garden. I popped the sentiment tag and bee onto my card to add even more dimension. Tim Holtz distress ink was used on all papers of my card.
Don't forget that this week's challenge at My Craft Spot is "Pop it up!" You have until Monday to link up your own project to be eligible to win this week's prize - a New Arrival stamp set.
Have a fantastic day!
