The theme of this months blog hop is ‘Spring’, so I wanted to share with you this spring themed greetings card, totally inspired by all of the beautiful colours out there at the moment.

I just love flowers, their bright colours really cheer me up and I wanted to send someone a little bunch of happy with this spring themed greetings card. I combined two stamp sets here, both with similar looks to the stamps, that almost textured appearance. The tulips are from the Timeless Tulips stamp set and the small flowers are from the Sweet Strawberry stamp set.
To get the circular design, I cut a 2 1/2″ circle from Basic White cardstock and positioned it just hanging off the right hand side of the card, then drew around it in pencil. This gave me a template for where to stamp the flowers and leaves, which I then stamped in Granny Apple Green, Poppy Parade, Mango Melody and Daffodil Delight.
I stamped the greeting onto the die-cut circle and then cut a slightly bigger one in Granny Apple Green, laying the two together, sticking onto the card and then trimming off the small excess that was overhanging. The strip of DSP down the bottom was a bit of an afterthought to cover up the dreaded ink smudge! Happens to us all…
A couple of extra flowers and basic rhinestones were all that was needed to finish off this gorgeous spring themed greetings card, and it has been sent to someone in hospital at the moment, wishing them all the love in the world.
Why not hop around to see what the rest of the gang have got in store for you, I’m sure there will be lots of colour and lots of flowers!
