Hello Friends – and Happy Spring! Well…we had a few days with sunshine and temperatures above freezing, so it feels like spring to me! I realized recently that my birthday card stash is in need of some pretty girly cards, and I am absolutely loving the spring vibe in the new “Hey, Hello” collection. You know what that means, right?
Don’t these cards just shout Spring?!? The colors are soft and airy – and seriously, the most gorgeous flower colors! And bumblebees are always a sure sign of Spring! Let me share some closer looks:
I couldn’t resist using a bit of the black dotted washi on this card – It’s just the right amount of dark color to tie everything together!
Speaking of “tying everything together,” I tied pretty white bows on all of these cards – it’s such a soft touch that adds a bit of interest and texture – not to mention femininity on these floral cards! I actually cut this diagonal stripe washi in half – I wanted thinner strips and it was easy to cut it to fit my needs!
Did you notice how the flowers and bees are popping off the card? They are actually stickers, but I used powder to remove the stickiness, then added foam adhesive squares for dimension! I love layering pop dots double and triple thick to enhance the effect! And, oh, how I wish you could see the shimmer of this gold washi tape!
I doubled up on the sentiment tags for each card as well – double wishes are TWICE as nice! Black and white floral washi is another fun way to make the other colors pop while adding a bit of interest!
Get yourself in a springy mood by whipping up some fun floral cards like these – it’s definitely a fun way to add to your stash AND brighten your own day while your at it! Happy Spring!
