Hello Spring!

Spring is definitely here in the UK – my daffodils are bursting into bloom, the sun has been shining and I have donned my gardening gloves and set about the task of weeding the borders! I have still found time to get my crafting supplies out and make some cards.

The theme for this week’s Handmade Harbour Midweek Papercrafting Party is ‘Spring – flowers, rabbits or birds!’

I have used Handmade Harbours ‘Cute Easter Chick’ digistamp – he is so cute with his little ‘Hello!’ sign. I printed him out six times and coloured him with my Promarkers:

Daffodil Bloom, Buttercup, Pumpkin, Satin, April Showers, Denim Blue, Fresh Meadow, Soft Green, Budding Rose, Rose Pink

I cut a square of lemon card and stuck it on my card blank, then I layered some pale blue card and pretty pink lattice design card on top. The pink lattice is part of the Strawberry Picnic set of printable papers available at Handmade Harbour. I added some floral ribbon from Dovecraft and made a bow with a button detail.

I cut out all the little chicks and attached them to the card, the little guy at the front is raised up on 3d foam.

This card is such a fun design, I hope you will come and join in the challenge with us – you could win some free digistamps from the Handmade Harbour store!!
