Hello, Spring

Hello Spring

OK, OK. I’ll admit it. I have a problem. Recently, I have been obsessed with Mint Macaron, Basic Black, Crumb Cake and gold. I promise I’ll try not to do this again, but I had to share this color combination one more time. It makes me so happy.

The weather here in New England has me thinking of Spring which inspired today’s card for the Global Design Project sketch #GDP026.

Global Design Project GDP026

I stamped the large flower from the Birthday Blooms stamp set with Mint Macaron ink on the same color cardstock, but the rest of this card is made with die cuts, ribbon and the new Glitter Tape available now during Sale-a-Bration.

The frame is cut from the center of the card using the Tags & Labels Framelits Dies. I cut an additional frame from Basic Basic cardstock using the same Framelit and the next size up. “Hello” is cut from the Greetings Thinlits Dies and the Whisper White butterfly is from the Butterflies Thinlits Dies.

I hope you enjoyed the card today. Join us at Global Design Project and show us how this week’s sketch inspired your project.

    I really like the unique design of your card, the use of frames and part of the butterfly. It’s a study in design…just lovely.

    But why not do it again? What you do is beautiful! And you use colors that pop. It wouldn’t be the same in any other colors. I’d love to see anything and I do mean anything you do in these colors. I really love them. And I didn’t even think of them together till I saw what you did! Keep up the beautiful work you do. I hope you don’t mind if I try it too? Thank you so much for sharing!

    Beautiful card, Shawn. I love the butterfly behind the frame and all layering, plus the flower stamped in same color as paper. Just so creative. Have a great day.
