Hello Friends! Today I have a quick and easy card to share with you using the April Creative Kit of the Month - Spring is in the Air. The reason I say this is quick and easy is because I am using a paper piecing technique instead of coloring. If you are not wanting to color your images because it takes longer, paper piecing can really be cute and saves alot of time! Here is my card!
The base of this card is A2 size - 4 1/4 x 5 1/2". I cut a piece of 8 1/2 x 11" at the 4 1/4" mark along the top of the cardstock and folded it at 5 1/2". Then I cut a layer of white cardstock at 4 x 5 1/4". The patterned paper ( included in kit) was cut at 3 3/4 x 5" and layered onto the white cardstock. I added a strip of the blue rain drop patterned paper, which was cut at 2 x 4". I cut/embossed an Elegant Ovals die using the same cardstock as the base. I stamped the boots and umbrella image using Rich Cocoa Memento Ink onto the white cardstock then cut/embossed this using Standard Ovals Lg. I stamped the umbrella and boots images onto the different patterned paper and cut them out and pieced them onto my die cut. Here is a closer look.
I stamped the sentiment onto a small scrap of white cardstock and trimmed it to fit along the bottom of the card. To complete everything I added some 3d foam squares under the ovals and adhered this to the card. Then added the blue bubbles into the 4 corners and on the top of the umbrella. I really love this card and think it would cheer up anyone feeling under the weather!
Hope you are having a great week! We are busy getting ready for our daughter's graduation from High school - yes, this is my middle daughter! I can't believe how time has flown by. It seems like just yesterday she was 3 years old and we were wondering if she would ever talk! LOL Life is wonderful, isn't it? Well it is just for today and that is all that matters! Talk to you soon!
