Card A Day Blog: It's Springtime!

Hi everyone, it's time again for another entry from me for the Card A Day Blog. This weeks theme is " Spring", and I chose to make this card for my post for today.

To make this card, I started off with a 5.5" x 4.25" white card base, then for a background, I chose to use a patterned paper from The Pocket Full Of Posies 8"x8" paper stack from DCWV, cut to 5.25" x 4", then adhered it ( after attaching the ribbon mentioned later ) to the front of the card base.

For my images, I chose the stamp set "It's Springtime" from Woodware Craft Collection. I stamped the three square images and the ladybug on a tulip image on a piece of white cardstock using black ink. To color the images, I used Copic Markers, Y08, Y17, Y38, R05, BG000, Bg10 and BG34. After coloring, I cut the images out, then adhered them using dimensional tape, to Spellbinder die cuts, cut out with the Fleur De Lis Squares smallest (3 cuts) and the next to the smallest die, and inked the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink, Broken China. 

To put it all together, I cut a piece of yellow checkered ribbon, from Really Reasonable Ribbon, long enough to fit my background paper and adhered it to the left side of my patterned paper, before adhering it to my card base, then I attached my smaller images to the top of the ribbon. I then attached my other image to the right of those images. I also stamped the sentiment  " It's Springtime" that also comes with this stamp set, cut it out, inked it with the Broken China ink, then attached it under my largest image.

I hope you enjoyed checking out my latest card, and that you come back again to see what else I've come up with. Be sure to check out the Card A Day Blog each day for some wonderful card inspiration and check out our monthly challenges, where one lucky winner will win a great prize!
