Four For Spring
Topic: Scrap Recovery
Assignment: Make cards for Spring
I used an old calendar page photo and managed to get 4 great sections of pink tulips to use. To me, tulips are the signature flower of spring, so this was perfect. I started with the same folded card base for all the cards and pulled out a variety of coordinating materials for them including ribbon, tags, punched shapes, background papers, stamps and accent papers.
Cards 1 and 2 are landscape format and use parts of the foreground of the picture. The first card has a plaid scrapbook paper added, a stamped tag, and a row of punched out tulips. Card two uses the same stamped tag but features polkadot paper (love this) and a punched out butterfly with lifted wings.
Cards 3 and 4 are portrait view and make use of the distance view from the calendar page. Both of them got a stripe of torn mulberry paper but then the designed diverged.
Card 3 uses a light pink grosgrain ribon with a metal/epoxy tag tied on (it says 'spring'). A paper tag is tucked under them. A large punched buterfly with lifted wings flutters over the field. Card 4 uses this same butterfly but adds in two other sizes to follow it. They each have gold-trimmed bodies. The ribbon for this one is a very narrow dark pink.
So with the same basic supplies there are four different looks.
