A Touch of Spring

I have been working on Valentine cards, but have to throw in a different card or project once in awhile. Plus it is in the 30s again today, so I needed a reminder that spring will come! :)

The base of this card is Whisper White, then matted with Calypso Coral. The images are, again, on Whisper White. The flowers are stamped with Tempting Turquoise, So Saffron, Calyso Coral, and Blushing Bride. Pear Pizzazz worked great for the leaves.

The flowers are stamped with the Petite Petals set. I used the masking technique on this card, so stamp off three of your flowers on a Post-It, making sure to stamp on the sticky area (this is why I love the all over Post-Its!). Cut the images out and place in the stamp case to be used over and over again. I stamped the two turquoise flowers first, placed the mask over the image and added the next color, moving and adding masks as needed. The same thing is done on the inside and the envelope. The sentiment is stamped in Tempting Turquoise, then I sponged Calypso Coral all around the edges, working it almost all the way to the center.

Here is what the inside looks like:

Even though the base is already Whisper White, I created a separate piece of Whisper White to create the inside, repeating the stamping and sponging from the cover. Then add this to the base.

Have a great day and thanks so much for stopping by!
