A Little Spring


That's all we need, just a little spring today. As I write this, the sun is trying to come out between the clouds and oh, my I hope it succeeds! I get to spend the day out today and sunshine is always a lift for me.

This sweet little card was inspired by a photo of four Gerbera Daisies in my daily devotional journal magazine. I immediately knew I wanted to turn it into a card and since my friend Andrea's baby shower was on Sunday, I made it into her card.

The Whisper White card base is 4 1/4" square and is sponged on the edges with Pixie Pink ink. I stamped the greeting on the lower right corner in Pixie Pink as well using the baby greeting from the Short and Sweet stamp set - another must own set! SU!, if you are listening, please don't retire this workhorse stamp set - it rocks!

The four daisies are cut using my Big Shot and the Flower, Daisies #2 Die, just like the purse box from yesterday (yes, I'm a bit obsessed at the moment!). I cut them with Pink Passion, Pixie Pink, Gable Green and Orchid Opulence. The centers are punched with the 1/2" Circle punch in Chocolate Chip. All the flowers are mounted on Stampin' Dimensionals so they pop up above the one layer card front - I know, that's unusual for me, but I loved the simplicity of it this time.
To finish the card, I stamped the baby sentiment from the God's Blessings stamp set on the inside in Pixie Pink.

I really loved how this turned out and we will probably be doing this card in my Just Cards camps next Tuesday. Oh, what is that? You haven't registered yet? Well, whatcha waitin' for? It's just $15 for 5 projects, all supplies included. You can RSVP with your $5 deposit by Saturday, 4/25.

Have a sunny, stampin' day!
