Spring is Here - not really!

This month's Creative Cafe Kit of the Month - "Spring is Here" is absolutely adorable and spring like.  It makes me want to get in the mood for spring.  However, Mother Nature is not cooperating.  I am capitalizing that because she definitely deserves respect after the winter we have had in New England.  Mary-Ann here, sharing my cute yet simple "Spring is Here" card with you today.  

I started with an A2 base.  I cut my paper so it would fold like you see.  Added a few layers of different patterns of paper.  I fussy cut the clouds out of the strip piece of Echo Park paper.  For the floral branches, I stamped it twice, turning one set of branches upside down for the right side of my card.  TIP:  In the kit, Melissa provides extremely high quality cardstock.  I find it a bit hard to fussy cut such intricate detailing you see on her stamps.  You may want to stamp this on a lighter weight of paper, to enable easier cutting.  

You can see here that I popped the small bird, some clouds and the lower tree branch with Kool Tak foam take for dimension.  With an old pair of pinking shears, I trimmed green paper and applied to layers of it at the bottom to replicate grass.

I hope you are now wishing for spring too.

See you soon.
