spring is just around the corner

Good morning all! Getting back into the groove here with another little number from the Spring Mini. 

Spring Girl 

Stamp Set: Easter Blossoms
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip, Wisteria Wonder
Punch: Scallop Trim Border, Decorative Label
Big Shot: Top Note
Extras: White Gel Pen

I began with a card front that was a third smaller than the back, so I then punched the scallop trim border,  next I used part of the negative scrap left from the top note die in wisteria wonder to create this edge trim. I added a thin strip of chocolate chip to finish off the edge. The card front is still smaller than the back but it adds a nice look when the card is closed and a strip of the very vanilla is showing. I stamped the girl silhouette in chocolate chip. Also in chocolate chip I stamped the sentiment on some wisteria wonder and punched it out with he decorative label punch. I had a small strip left which I used the decorative label punch to add a detail to the ends and adhered it over the top. Finally I used a white gel pen to add a couple stitching lines. 

I hope you liked this creation, I will be back later today with some more information about the Sale-A-Bration that has started today!

Happy Stamping,

  1. Really like how you've done this one too. The right hand edge gives it that extra something!

  2. Gorgeous! :) Had loads of fun yesterday, am now feeling very inspired for my classes xx

  3. Awesome! Love how you used the 'leftover' negative piece for the trim!!
