First Day of Spring


Well, it's officially the Vernal Equinox today and the first day of Spring. Noone told the weather though and it's raining here. 

My card today uses the Irresistible Blooms Suite collection and the die on the edge panel really makes me think of the rain on the windows of my craft room.



My thanks go to Sue Campfield for her Flying Finch fold that I used for the card. I have a real weakness for fancy folds - just in case you hadn't noticed, and this one stands really well. I just realised it's all F-s; Flying Finch made with Flirty Flamingo card! I just love the pretty colour and how well it shows off the DSP . The 3D embossing folder Ive used comes from the new Basic trio set. This one with the cross-hatching is lovely. 

   TIP!!!


Cut the card a little larger than requires, spritz with water before embossing and leave to dry. Them cut card to size. There is so much 3d dimension that it makes the card shrink a little and I might be a little OCD but I prefer it all to match in size. 

I used the Multi-purpose wet glue throughout as I find it easier to line up layers with a little slippage time. I adhered the die-cuts with a tiny dab on the back of the dots and used a scrap of card with smear of glue  to get under the strands. Wow! All tips today!! 


Thanks so much for joining me.
