Pretty Primroses

Hi there all, Jennifer here again, 

I hope everyone is happy, happy, happy Lol! and managing to fit in some special crafting time.   The card I have to share with you today was made in January 2012 and it uses Imagination Craft's Spring Decoupage Stamp Set - Primrose.   I have used some soft pastel shades for this card which gives it a fresh, light Spring feel.  A card to lighten the heart after the Winter months.   Well let's get started shall we.

First of all, make a base card from  pale blue card.   Take some peach card and lay the Summer Blossom Stencil onto it and put it through an embossing machine.   Fix this to the base card, wrapping some ribbon around it and securing on the back of the card.

Take some white card and colour with the yellow distress ink.   Stamp the swirl stamp from the set onto the yellow card using orange distress ink.

From the yellow card, cut out an oblong and mount onto a piece of the blue card, leaving a tiny border of blue showing.   Fix this to the right-hand side of the base card and add three adhesive stones to the top right.

Take the die and some blue card and run it through a die cutting machine.   Fix this to the centre of the base card and fix a square of peach card to the centre of the blue die cut.

From the yellow coloured card, cut out a square to fit the peach card but slightly smaller and stamp 'A warm hello' onto it using the blue distress ink pad.   Add a ribbon bow to the bottom left of the lacy square.

Colour some white card with the yellow distress ink and stamp the small primrose flower head six times using the blue distress ink.   Cut out and fix to the card front with Magi-Glue.   Stamp out another six flowers onto peach card but this time cut out the centres only  and glue these onto the yellow flowers using silicone glue.

Well that is the card finished.   Until next time, happy crafting and see you soon.
