Hello Spring...

Spring is around the corner!  Yesterday we stopped at my mother-in-law's and sure enough, her daffodils are coming up!  Click the photos to get a full size view...

I started this step card with the Orchard Tree Frame die.  I cut it three times and layered/glued them together.  The background piece is Memory Box Morroccan Bluebird card-stock,  I ran it through the big shot with the frame die but I didn't shim it, that way it didn't cut clear through. The pieces that did cut completely I pieced them back in.  The next layer up was cut in black and the top layer in white.  The white layer I colored with Copic Sketch Markers.

I used the Summer Border die for the bottom.  I cut it out of Memory Box color card-stock and pieced it together.  I cut two green pieces, cutting the flowers and stems completely off of one.  Then I sanded them, just a touch!

I LOVE the Parker lower case alphabet!  I die cut it in white and mounted the words 'hello spring' with thin mounting squares that I cut into strips.  I used Poppystamps Picket Fence die and Memory Box Puffy Clouds, Set of Swings, Lavish Branch and Vintage Bicycle dies. I cut the swing out of white card-stock and colored it with Copics to look like rope and a tire.

Step cards are easy to make and so fun to create a scene with! This is a 5 1/2 inch square card.
