Spring Release Thank You Card
by Robin Tharaldson

PS April 27 With

Hi everyone, today I have a "thank you" card featuring several dies from Poppystamps Spring Release! There are MANY more in the release, so be sure to check it out here!  This card is an A7 or 5" x 7", sometimes you just need a larger card base to pull off your design.

PS April 27 CU2 With

The main feature on my card is the beautiful butterfly! To create this butterfly I used the Corden and Powell Butterfly dies!  Each die can be used individually but together they make an awesome butterfly!

PS April 27 CU1 With

For added interest I used the Finial Corner die on two of the corners of my card.  I used spray adhesive to adhere the die cuts to my card panel.

PS April 27 CU3 With

I used the Thank You Streamer die for my sentiment; it's an older die but one I use over and over.  To see how to create this card check out the following video!

 

Thanks for stopping by the Poppystamps blog and hopefully you checked out the Spring Release! For more ideas, inspiration and news subscribe to the Poppystamps Blog!

For my post today I am featuring the Big Circle Border Layer die; I think it adds a nice touch to my panel and allows the background color to show.

My bouquet was created using Peony Stems and Blossom, stamps and dies. The images were stamped with Memento Desert Sand onto watercolor paper and simply colored.
