Spring "Thanks So Much" Card in 30 minutes

It had me at "Hello"! The Lemon Flower paper stack from DCWV that is. It is sooooo beautiful! My favorite color is green and I love pairing yellow with it (easy choice for the color of my business logo!). So when I saw this stack in Joann's, I immediately picked up the 12x12 and the 4.5x6.5 stacks. And look at my first project with it in 30 minutes!! Did I say I was in love?!?!

The green background is from the small stack. I trimmed it up a little so that it has a small white border around it. The black floral piece has embossing powder all over the black part which makes it shiny and very pretty. I cut that about a 1/2 inch smaller on all sides to give a larger green border.

Before I glued the black paper down, I cut a piece of beautiful Goldenrod seam binding and ran it behind the paper. I then took the streamers, tied a knot and ran a flure de lis charm on one of the them. Once the charm was in place, I tied my bow.

The only Cricut cut on the card is the tag for the sentiment. It is from Once Upon a Princess and it is the tag on the butterfly cut. I used my G to elongate it to just the right size for my card. I stamped my sentiment on it, added some bling and pop dots for good measure and adhered it to the card.

When it was completed, I knew I had made a good investment in this paper stack. Looking at this card makes me happy and I hope it does the same for you. Tell me what you think and I will see you later!
