I decided that a truly spring-y looking card was in store for you today. I love this time of the year here in central Wisconsin. The blooming trees and bushes are at their lushest and spring flowers are popping up all over. The trees are at their vulnerable new stages of leafing out. Everything just looks so fresh and wonderful!

My card was created with a few retired products: the lovely Designer Series Paper and the darling flower die.

Just a closeup:

Here is a tutorial to recreate this card -- if you still have your supplies!

Pool Party cardstock
Calypso Coral cardstock
Old Olive cardstock

Die Cutting/Embossing Machine
Floral Squares dies
Just Because die
Pool Party sequins
Peach-Colored Pearls
Stampin' Dimensionals

Fold a 5 1/2" x 8 1/2"  piece of Pool Party cardstock in half, creasing it well with a bone folder.

To this card base, add a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of coordinating Designer Series Paper.

Use a small piece of Old Olive cardstock to die cut a framed flower and stem piece using a die from Floral Squares.

From this same die set, cut the three matching flowers in Calypso Coral cardstock. Adhere them over their counterparts on the first diecut piece.

Mount this to a 2 1/4" square of Calpyso Coral cardstock. Use Stampin' Dimensionals to add this to the card front, leaving equal margins at the top and at the sides.

From Pool Party cardstock, die cut a fairly large sentiment. Use small dots of glue to add this to the lower portion of the card.

Add coral colored pearls to the centers of the three flowers.

Scattered around the square, add three light turquoise sequins.
