Dream Theme Blog Hop - Easter
Wednesday, March 15, 2017
Both my desktop and laptop computers went on the fritz within a week of each other. I just got them back from the repair shop just in the nick of time! It's Dream Theme Blog Hop time.
Welcome from Amy's blog!
Today we are sharing Easter creations! I have a card that involves a bit of fussy cutting using the SAB Avant-Garden stamp set and the beautiful Blooms & Bliss DSP. The piece of DSP I used reminds me so much of the cherry blossoms that fill many of our streets here in Victoria. Just this last Monday I noticed that a few of the streets were beginning to show that wonderful sign of Spring! I decided to create an A7 sized card this time (5 x 7) so that I could get a lot of lowers on the card.
It was an after thought to add the "Happy Easter" border which explains why it is upside down. I would have spaced everything better had I done is before adding the flowers. At least to me it looks upside down. In the photo below, you can see all the flowers and leaves I fussy cut after stamping, and arranged on the card. I decided that I did not want a monochromatic card and included yellow and blue flowers to the colour scheme. Colours associated with Spring colours.
In the side view below, you can see that I popped up the matted white rectangle as well as some of the flowers and the "Happy Easter" banner.
On the inside, I added my usual corner stamping. Since it is a larger card, there is plenty of space for it.
The next blog post to see is that of the very talented Jennifer!
