For my Spring project, I decided to use a few products I hadn’t used before. I got some of the crafty secrets cotton scraps in Spring designs from Kim and thought these would be great.
I cut out the one I wanted and sewed around the edges. Then I got some threads loose and pulled them to fray the edges a little bit. Then I mounted the little chick on a pale yellow rectangle that was printed on my Cricut Imagine with the Imagine More cartridge. Then I matted that on a larger blue rectangle also from Imagine More and stitched around the edges of that. All the paper used in this project with the exception of the kraft paper was printed with the Imagine from Imagine More. I used the polka dot pattern as the main background for this card. I matted the rectangle on the kraft cardstock and stitched around the edges. I went around twice and kind of went a little freeform with the second border to give it a more playful feel. I printed the olive green checked pattern and then cut it out with the largest die from the Spellbinders floral motifs doily set. I placed the doily down on the polka dot paper and then placed the chick over one side. I put some Kaiser Craft pearls in the little openings of the doily.
One of my new favorite embellishments are these gorgeous gardenia flowers from Cutters Creek. I love the look of them. I used a blue and a yellow one from the pastels set. I love the vintage look of them. I ran my scissors along all the edges of the papers to kind of give them a frayed look like the fabric and inked all the edges with brown ink to make it a little more shabby chic.
I hope you have enjoyed my Spring card and now it’s time for you to hop on over to Laura’s Blog and check out the wonderful project she has for you! Don’t forget to leave a comment on the Design Team blog to be entered in the drawing to win some SWAG!!!
