Happy spring everyone! Today is another rainy, gray, blustery, day in PA - hence, my design for for the hopes of spring flowers from April's showers.
I was looking for something new, and I found this tutorial for a "tent fold" card on Splitcoaststampers
It is a very easy fold to make, gives your card not only dimension, but also a way for it to be displayed.
I made all the cuts in DS and saved the file for future use.
The base card was cut in white @ 4 1/4 x 8 1/2
The outside and inside mats are cut @ 4 x4
I adhered the front mat to the card base and then cut the circle out all at once.
The outside circle frame was made in DS and cut separate.
The sentiment, inside and outside mat are from Debbie Mum.
The umbrella is from NA and the cutie face is from Peachy Keen Stamps.
Grass is PS and the flower is made from 1" hearts topped off with a white button and baker's twine.
A rainy day front with a spring flower inside gives way to the adage:
April Showers bring May flowers
I will add a sentiment to the back of the card to finish it off.
This was another fun little project to try, but I would make it a bit larger next time.
The finished size is approximately 4 1/2 square.
