Springtime Card


Hi Everyone, apologies for falling behind with your blogs this week, I look forward to catching up as soon as I am able. Today I am showcasing four of Cheery Lynn's new dies on my DT card for Cheery Lynn DesignsLet me show you how I built my layers on my 5.75 x 5.75 card.



On a length of patterned paper I placed my Curved Border set with the little pierced holes about half an inch in from the edge. I then added my cutting strip to the edge of my paper matching up with my pierced design, holding down with some low tack tape to keep in place. Inking the edges and adding on my lace edge.



I sprayed a little water onto my paper and gathered it into folds. I dried with my heat gun, highlighting the folds with Distress Ink. I then stitched around the edges for more detail.





You will notice my pierced stacker had the middle section cut out to fit neatly into the space available on my card and to compliment my oval doilies shape. 



On my image I coloured her dress with Distress Pens and mounted onto my doily frame. I die cut my frame in white cardstock and then pressed into my Versamark Ink pad and heat embossed some Aged Aqua Frantage powder.


My branches I shaded with Copic Pens. My Cherry Blossom was shaded with Distress Ink and a Pearl added to the centre which I coloured with Alcohol Inks.


My sweet little Blue Tit was shaded with Distress Inks and edged with a Black Fine Liner Pen around his face and a diamante added for his eye. I absolutely adore these new birds from Cheery Lynn which come in a set of four ....... a must have !

Thanks for stopping by to see my post today and for the lovely comments you leave, I really appreciate them.
