Spring is in the air and the sky is filling up with the tweets from our feathered friends. So I decided to put a taste of Spring in my card today. I'll be putting it in three challenges...

Stampin' Up inks Basic Black and Poppy Parade

Creative Memories Cricut cartridge Reminisce Accents
Pop dots and adhesive
I started by cutting my Basic Black into a 6x12 piece and a 6x6 piece. Then cut Poppy parade into a 5 1/2x 5 1/2 piece, stamped the swirl image in Poppy Parade on the Poppy Parade paper and mounted that onto the 6x6 Basic Black square. Then I used my bone folder to create a diagonal fold on the face of the card to produce the easel, adhering the 6x6 piece to the right side of the diagonal only. Then I cut out the Swallow image and shadow on my Cricut and glued together. I added the ribbon and popped up the swallow in the corner of the Poppy Parade cs. Then I pierced the brads in place, stamped the flower in Poppy Parade and the word cherish in Basic Black. Cut out and Popped that up and placed on the inside corner.
This is my second easel card and I love how it came out and hope that you enjoy it too :)
