Over the Edge for Spring

Monday, February 24, 2014

Did you catch that title?  Seriously...it is minus 50 with the wind chill again this morning...and this stamper is sick, sick, sick of winter.  OK, got that off my chest...on with the card, which I might add looks rather spring-like doesn't it?

I actually pulled out some papers that I've been hoarding.  Love the colors!  My card base is 3.5" x 5.5" to allow for the circle to hang over the edge.  It's been layered with one of the papers from this pack.  Then I die cut some chevrons in coordinating papers...two large and one small and tucked them right against each other on the card.  Next a simple rectangle, again layered with designer paper.  The circle has been die cut with a nestie and stamped with the little robin (please, spring...come on!), and then the sentiment.

A smattering of sequins and done!

Here's what I used:
Paper:  Gina K. ivory and Marianne Designs Birds & Flowers
Ink:  Hero Arts Soft Pool and Versafine Onyx Black
Stamps:  Hero Arts (bird) and Verve (sentiment)
All the other stuff:  Big Shot Pro, MFT Chevron Stripes die-namics, Spellbinders circle nestie, sequins, adhesives
