Spring Garden

 Our cardmaking group had a card exchange and so I decided to play along, I went with a spring theme and I hadn't used my step card die for quite some time so I thought it was time to break it out. I love the arbor with the flowers blooming over it.

I took a top view since you couldn't see the tiny flowers on the step area of the card.

The little birdie is a wooden bird, I just added a little ink to him, and a little bush he could sit on. I shaped the little flowers with a foam mat and my stylus and added stickles to the center. Colored the planter and bush with markers.

  • Sizzix - Card Basics Step ups die
  • Taylored Expressons - Garden Arbor & Gate, Arbor Accessories and Door to door decor dies
  • Fiskars - Grass punch
  • Tim Holtz - Small talk sentiment sticker
  • Recollections - Wooden bird w/inking
  • Stickles - Scattered straw (flower centers)

I usually try to wait to write in them after my picture taking but forgot this time. I also forgot to write down the paper I used.

I would like to share my card with the Four Seasons Challenge Spring

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today,

That gate is clearly the entrance to a lovely garden! What fun to decorate the step card with all the little garden bits. Your flowers look especially pretty climbing over the arbor!

Your spring-themed step card is absolutely delightful! The arbor with blooming flowers and the little birdie perched on the bush create such a charming scene. The attention to detail, like shaping the flowers and adding stickles to the centers, truly brings the card to life. It's evident that a lot of love and creativity went into making it.
