Spring Greeting Cards





Spring is such an uplifting time of year! 

The spring bulbs brighten our gardens and the birds start singing.  As nature moves into action with its longer days and blossoming trees. 

When spring arrives our thoughts turn to fresh crisp colours….

Sunshine yellows, pastel blues and greens, pinky-reds, cool lavender and turquoise.

Such a fantastic mix of colours to create some amazing spring cards!

Spring has three main card making occasions....


Valentine’s Day – held on the 14th February is the only fixed date.


Mother's Day and Easter are both moveable dates and change each year.




Spring Dates


Valentines Day:   14th February

Mother's Day  USA:   Sunday 9th May 2021 

Mother Day UK:   Sunday 14th March 2021 

Easter Day :   Sunday 4th April 2021





Let's see what spring greeting cards we can create....




Daffodil Cards

Daffodils cards will brighten anyones day!

They can be used for birthday cards, thank you cards, Mother's day and Easter cards.  

The daffodil is the national flower of Wales and is worn on St David's day (1st March).

It also symbolises new beginnings and has been adopted by the Marie Curie Charity to help raise funds to support people with cancer.

Our daffodil cards have been made using the "You're Inspiring" stamp set from Stampin Up! with co-ordinating card and paper.

Before starting your cards check out your card sizes and layers.

And here's the same stamp used in different ways....

The final daffodil card is a gate fold card and uses a different stamp from the same stamp set.  

These daffodils were coloured using watercolour pencils and a blender pen.

Bird Cards

These cards were made over the Easter weekend just as our garden birds were eyeing up the bird boxes!

Hopefully we'll have some "lodgers" soon.

To make the cards I used the "Flying Home" stamp set from Stampin Up! and coloured in with alcohol markers.
