Happy first day of Spring. In honor of the occasion I tried to make a spring like card design and I used something new for me called Chalkboard Embossing. You can view the post at the Crop Stop Blog to see how it is done. Very easy I might add. All you need is black card stock, an embossing folder and some white chalk. Luckily I had a stash of white chalk which had been in my craft drawer for a long time and today I finally found a purpose for it other than writing on a chalk board. Yippee!
Nothing says Spring like a spray of flowers. For my flowers and sentiment I chose stamps from the Gina K. Designs Warm Spring Wishes set. They were all fussy cut and that took me quite some time to do but I am glad I did them this way as it was easy to build my design later on. Both the chalkboard panel and the light green panel were die cut using the Cottage Cutz Double Stitched Rectangle set.
I placed all of the layers and flowers on a base card of white card stock. The card was then finished by adding some black rhinestones.
Other supplies used were my Scor Pal, Scor Tape and a Cuttlebug embossing folder called Floral Fantasy.
This will be entered into the Stamp TV Mix It Up Monday Challenge as well as the Crop Stop Linky Party Challenge #26.
Well, we had another gorgeous day but it sounds like we are going into a cooler mode again for our weather and another chance of rain or snow. But then that is the way Spring begins. It is always a mix of weather so that is no surprise to me.
Well, take care and thanks for the visit and comments. Happy Spring to all of you as well.
