I'm so excited to be participating in this hop, and I hope you'll enjoy my little springy project. Make sure you scroll all the way down for your chance to win some springy blog candy! Here's my card:
I had so much fun making this card, which can double as an Easter decoration. When folded up, this card measures 5.5" square, so it will fit in a 6" square envelope. I used several Cricut carts in this project: bunny and butterfly--Create a Critter, tree--Simply Charmed, basket and eggs--Doodlecharms, bushes and grass--Everyday Paper Dolls. I used my Cuttlebug to emboss the tree, eggs, and basket, and I added lots of chalk, ink, and doodling to make everything pop! I used shapes from Birthday Bash to create the card base (I got the idea from Lettering Delights' Sweet Nothings SVG set--but the card there is rectangular, and I wanted a square card). Here's how I made the base, in case you're interested:
I created a file on my Gypsy using the Birthday Bash circle and square shape. I had to design it on a 12 x 24" mat because the Gypsy kept moving my shapes over on the 12 x 12" mat so it wouldn't cut out correctly. Strange and frustrating problem, but switching to the larger mat fixed it. :o)
Next, I folded the two square shapes in half and the rectangular shape 2.75" from each end.
I glued the pieces together to form the basic card base, making sure I lined up the circles just right.
Next, I made another Gypsy file for the patterned paper I wanted to line the card with. I made it so there would be a white border around each paper piece.
I cut the square piece in half.
Then I glued all of the pieces in place.
And finally my base was all ready to be filled with springy goodness! I'd love to share this file with you. If you'd like both files...the card base and the paper linings, just let me know in your comment and make sure to include your e-mail address. You can feel free to use it for your own projects, just please link back to me if you post the card you make in your blog. :o)
