Easter Crocus
by Sue McRae

Hi everyone, Sue here with a happy spring Easter card! 

P1300727c

It will be at least another month before the crocuses start blooming in my next of the woods but I can always enjoy them in my card making!

P1300646c

I started off creating my pot planters by taking one of the Memory Box Stitched Octagon die cuts and slicing it in half. 

P1300650c

To add texture to the pots I ran them through my Big Shot with an embossing folder and added ink to darken the raised areas.

P1300731c

The grass and crocuses were die cut from white card stock and coloured with Distress Inks.

P1300718c

I added Prisma glitter to the flower heads, flicked some gold paint on the background and stamped my sentiment.

Thanks for visiting with me today!
