Happy Spring Note Card

Hey everybody! Hope you’re having a great week – we are rockin’ and rollin’ here, and Ed is getting better every day! He’ll get his stitches taken out on Thursday morning and hopefully we’ll get good news of clear margins on the melanoma excision, and that’ll be the end of that! ;) Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you – I really appreciate your support! I’ve popped in this morning to share the final sample I created in conjunction with the Prickley Pear Stamps new release of the Easter Cross stamp set. This pretty Spring note card is a super simple design and features stamps from the previously-released Crosses 2 stamp set.

I cut a mini slimline card base from CutCardStock Royal Sundance Felt 110# Natural cardstock and angled all four corners. I cut half layering panels from two coordinating prints from the My Mind’s Eye Howdy Doody 6×6 designer paper pad which I adhered together, and then added a strip of Eyelet Outlet Gold Script Washi Tape at the seam and adhered the panel to the card base. I cut a scrap piece of the felt cardstock into a tag, punched the top with a tag topper punch and angled the bottom corners. I stamped a vertical sentiment and a bird image on the tag with stamps from the Crosses 2 stamp set, added an Eyelet Outlet 12mm Red Pearl Brad and a brown twine bow, and adhered the tag to the card front. The finishing touch was adding several tiny clear gemstones that I colored with a brown alcohol marker.

For the inside, I cut embellishing strips from the My Mind’s Eye Howdy Doody patterned papers used on the front, which completed the card.

And one more look… such a pretty design with a tag, which I love!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D

  2. A beautifully done card with this great sketch and the angled corners are so effective and different! I’ve done rounded corners before but not angled but definitely something I’d like to do soon! Thanks so much for the inspiration and for joining in at my Crafty Wednesday challenge this month!
