Crafty Cardmakers Challenge 185 – Spring into Spring

185 spring

Peggy is hosting our challenge today, and the theme is Spring into Spring. With the Spring Equinox having just occurred in the UK earlier this month we are hopefully springing back into life with new births, and buds and flowers appearing on the trees and shrubs and so we would love to see your Spring themed cards. These can include New Birth as well as flora and fauna.

As usual anything you care to enter is fine, a card, scrap layout, mixed media piece, some home decor, as long as it has a lovely Spring theme.

Please remember our 15 total challenge rule!

For my card, I chose to use a hunkydory little book image as my main topper.  I used a 5 x 7 plain white base card, and cut the centre of the little book image out using the inner cutting edge from a tonic cherish the moment rectangle frame die set to make a topper layer.  As it has an inner and an outer cutting edge it is perfect for cutting a mat and a layer.  I cut the mat out of rainbow mirri card using the outer cutting edge, and layered it onto the remains of the little book image (as I’d cut the centre out using the inner edge die, it covered the “hole” perfectly!)  This was then layered onto another sheet of the rainbow mirri card and stuck onto my base card

I used glue to stick the image onto the mat, and added a simple chiffon bow to the top left corner, and a sentiment to the bottom of the topper to finish my card.
