Spring Card.......

It's still cold outside and rainy today, but that did not stop me from wanting to create a card with a spring-like look.  I was anxious to use a new Spellbinders die (the Garden Weave die used on the top right corner of the card) and that gave me the starting point for creating this card.

This is a 5x5 inch card.  I used a Spellbinders' Grand Squares die to cut the card base.  I used another Spellbinders die - the large scalloped square die to cut a piece of ivory craft store felt and layered the three smallest dies from the Spellbinders Majestic Elements - Marvelous Squares die set over the scalloped square.  The bow is satin ribbon I had in my stash.

I made the large flower and the smaller flowers are from Michael's. The button on the bow is one of the resin buttons I created.

I glittered all the flowers (except for the two smaller coral flowers) and the Spellbinders Garden Weave die cut piece under the flowers.

The inside of the card is simple. I die cut another scalloped square out of patterned paper and a square out of Papertrey Ink Rustic Cream card stock, stamped a sentiment and wrapped ribbon on two corners of the card. That's it!

This card has lots of layers and will probably need to be sent in a package or hand delivered.
