Spring is in the air here in New England and the sun has been shining! Makes me want to create using the bright beautiful colors from the April - Creative Cafe Kit of the Month Spring is in the Air! I have been missing in action for a couple weeks mending from a surgery and there has been nothing more cheerful than the beautiful stamps and papers in this kit.
I wanted to create a starburst effect to use several of the patterned papers. I started by creating a card base and cutting a scrap of paper for the size starburst that I wanted. I then cut the starburst with long scissors and labeled them in order.
I used temporary adhesive to attach these to the patterned paper. I wanted to make sure that my papers were all in the correct direction. I then cut these along the templates edges.
Placed them down on my cardstock card base with permanent adhesive and using my sewing machine for added embellishment. I then added the floral stamp image and colored with colored pencils. You could use watercolors, copics or any marker you have on hand. I accordioned my ribbon and added my stamped title.
I hope you have enjoyed this simple color packed card and that your neck of the woods is thawing out too! Happy Spring!
