Fred She Said Spring Flower-Tulip

Today, I have the third in a series of the Spring Flowers collection from Fred She Said. If you would like to see these images, they can be found here. I have one more flower to complete on these 4-1/2" x 4-1/2" cute little easel cards.

Don't you think these little easel cards are just so sweet? I used the Spellbinders Lotus Die for this card along with the Spellbinders Fancy Tags and Large Circle Nestabilities. The edges were distress inked with Spun Sugar.The Martha Stewart Punches are Branch, Frond, and Small Butterfly. The flowers were in the clearance section at Micheal's. I glittered this up and used ribbon and pearls for embellishment. As you can see in the picture above, I made this card with an extra piece as well for writing my sentiment.


Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you found some inspiration to do some spring cards for your collection. They make wonderful Birthday cards that are sure to be enjoyed for many years to come.
