Right now it feels like Spring will never come here in Colorado but making Spring themed cards using the February release from Frantic Stamper is some relief to all the cold and snow. I paired a few dies from this release with the tri-panel card base released last month. I’ve included a step by step photo tutorial again today.
Die cut the Elements #21 Tri-Panel Card Base die from green cardstock and ink blend the edges with a green dye ink.
Add a generous amount of foam tape.
Die cut bloom, & and grow from Garden Reverse-Cut Words die set from the inner pieces cut from the panel die.
Place the panel on a gray card base. Place the inner pieces back in with tape runner or liquid glue.
Place the negatives of the word dies back in without adhesive.
Place the letters using liquid glue.
Remove the negative section carefully.
I decided on a gray A2 card base but seeing the completed card I wonder if brown would have been a better choice.
Die cut and color the Botanicals Daffodils die. The Copic markers used are listed in the photo. I also used a white gel pen.
Adhere the daffodil with liquid glue and foam tape where needed. Place an acrylic block over it while the glue dries.
Stamp two sentiments from the Happy Spring stamp set with embossing ink and heat emboss with white embossing powder. Cut them with a paper trimmer and add some ink blending to the edges.
Add lacquer pen to letters. Finish things off with a few sequins.
I hope you like this card and found the tutorial helpful. Visit Frantic Stamper to see the rest of the February release. I still have a few more cards to share.
Thanks for visiting!
