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 

It's a time to put away the deep colours of winter and embrace the fresh crisp colours of spring....

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

There are 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 - 2021

Valentines Day:   14th February

Mother's Day  USA:   Sunday 9th May 2021,  UK:   Sunday 14th March 2021

Camellia - Paint a Flower

Camellias are the first spring flowers in my garden after the snowdrops and are a welcome sign of better days ahead.

These cards were created with the Camellia Paint a Flower set from Altenew which has one large image stamp, a main sentiment and six sub sentiments.

The first card was stamped with Espresso Truffle Memento ink for a softer outline than the usual black and was coloured with Copic markers.

(RV52, RV06, RV55, RV19, YG01, YG07, YG17, G85, YR20,YR24, E25)

The card was completed with the Doily Lace frame from Mama Elephant.  

Although pleased with the card I didn't have the right alcohol markers colours to match the flowers in my garden. 



So, for my second card I used the Zig Clean colour brush markers on watercolour paper. A much better colour match!

I die cut the image with the Stacked Circles from Mama Elephant and a layering die set from Tonic Studios.

Finally, I added a patterned paper background and white sequins.




Simply Spring - Doodlebug Designs

The Simply Spring 6 x 6" paper pad from Doodlebug Designs has the most adorable patterns and colours.

The sheets are double sided.  One side is patterned and other is a more subtle design.  Two of the sheets have cut out sentiments - so you don't need to do any stamping if you don't want too!

When using a paper pad I always start with simple designs to get myself started. 

The first two cards simply use the two sides of the patterned paper with a strip across to hide the join.

For all the cards I used a selection of small flower dies with scraps of matching card for my embellishments.

Another feature I added to many of the cards is the Love from Lizi peel out strips and the aqua shimmer from Tonic Studios for added sparkle and shine.

My final card uses the Pin Wheel Technique.  A great way to use up scraps of patterned paper.

Each square in the pin wheel measures 1 1/4" square.  I used a punch but a square die cut would work as well.

I hope this whizz through of my spring greeting cards has inspired you to get creating whether it's for a spring birthday, Easter or just a quick "Hello".

Enjoy this beautiful season by sharing your cards with your friends and family.
