Good morning on this Beautiful Sunny Presidents Day. After getting 2 feet of snow last Wednesday, they are calling for another 6" later today. Joy of Joys.
Well, here is a Spring card for you to enjoy if you also have snow you don't know where to go with. I wanted to post this yesterday, since I am trying to make a card a day, however, this one seemed to take me forever to make.
I drew the left hand side piece free hand and then used the swiss dots embossing folder on it. It started out as a monochromatic card in Amethyst, but once I added that touch of yellow to the Iris, I decided to even it out with more yellow.
Other Challenges for this card:
Incy Wincy Designs Challenge 30 to use punches. I used four differnt punches for my card.
C.R.A.F.T Challenge 37 - Digi Coloring
Pile It On Challenge #6 - Flowers.
I used a Digi image from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps called February Iris. I printed it out and colored it twice. Then cut the second one including all of the tiny inside parts. Gee, maybe that's why it took me forever to make this cards! Then I mounted it on top of the first colored image with foam tape fore a 3D affect.
The The cardstock is Amethyst & the DP is from a retired pack from Close to my Heart. The flowers and leaves were made with punches.
The Hand stitching around the card was done with matching Amethyst Embroidery Floss.
