Hello Spring

Hi Crafty Friends,

Welcome to our February Paper Pros challenge. This month our challenge is hosted by Sandy Diller who has given us the theme .... Spring Fever.

I decided to create another Rockin' Rectangle Pop-up card using the acetate window on the front. You can find Karen's tutorial on how to create this style of card here.

Here is a quick video to see my card in action.

For the background of my card I used Altenew's Pinstripe Stamp set, stamping onto white cardstock using black ink and then turning the card by 90 degrees and stamping again to create a diamond pattern.

For the flowers I again used an Altenew stamp set ... this time Ruffled Flowers. The 'sweet friend' sentiment is also included in the set.

Along the left side of the card I added a Crafter's Companion Hello Edge'ables Word die set. To color the sentiment I sponged the same two orange inks I used for the flowers to give an ombre effect.

I used the scallop rectangle included in the Rockin' Rectangle Pop-up die set to add a sentiment which is from Stampendous. 

I also stamped and die cut a few more flowers and cut them up to add to the sentiment panel, the background and the left panel on the front of the card.

This is honestly one of the prettiest and coolest cards I've ever seen!! It is perfection! The elements don't conflict with each other and just look so good together! Love it!
