Spring is in the Air!

The sun is out, the temperatures are creeping upwards and therefore it is time to create a new "house" card with spring as it's theme.

Back in December I created a "Christmas House" card.  (You can see it HERE)  In January, I made a "Valentine" bird house and you can see that one HERE.  Now was the time to change the colors, add grass and flowers for a new and updated look!

I stamped the house with Impression Obsession's Cover a Card background stamp and then die cut it out, also with an I/O die.  The grass is a Cheery Lynn die as well as the tiny flowers on the windows.  The other purple flowers are from one of my most used punches from Nellie Snellen; the tiny twin punch, flower and butterfly.  The doily affect is a border die, also from Nellie Snellen,

Now, just stamping a saying on the inside of the card seems so boring.  We have so many dies and stamps that I decided to decorate the inside too. 

I used the doily die to tie it in with the front curtains and roof line; a small butterfly was an added sweet touch.  I  also added the grass and flowers and still left room for a personal note.

These house cards are so sweet and fun to make............try your hand at it.  You are going to enjoy making them as well as giving them.  Let me know if you need any of the supplies listed and I'll get them to you in no time!

Looking forward to seeing what you create!
