Spring is on my mind...in a TALL way :)
Here is it! I made a Tall card...my first ever! The card base measures 9X4 and can fit into a #10 envelope. How much fun is that?!?!
Anyways I was at Michaels...surprise, surprise (my home away from home) when I found a package of Tim Holtz fragments. They were on clearance so I bought them :) I didn't know what to do with them so I went to Tim's website to watch a tutorial on these so cute clear tiles. He being the master (right!?!?) of all things altered took scraps and attached them to these tiles. I then knew what I was going to do with them. I went through my scrap container and pulled out my springy paper. What a great way to use up those little pieces of scrap. I usually just give my too small pieces to my boys so they can cut and paste and make things. I attached my scraps with glossy accents and tada this is how they came out!!
The spring cutout is from Stretch your Imagination cartridge. I cut this out and cut off the spring flowers that are attached to this cut. Instead of the dotted "i" I put a button.
I scalloped the purple paper using my corner rounder with the guide removed (another tutorial idea). With alittle stitching aound the spring sentiment and circle and my card was finished.
I hope you like my spring card!
