Hey Friends! Anyone else as excited about the first day of Spring as I am? And since it is the first day of spring, Elizabeth Craft Designs has a whole blog post with a collection of gorgeous projects to celebrate. Make sure to pop over and check it all out!
I thought I would play around a little with the idea of spring and create a little something from Joset’s latest die collection. But how do you make a mermaid fit into spring… well add eggs of course.
Step One: Die cut the Mermaid die set out of 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock.
Step Two: Color the die cuts. I used my Copic alcohol markers.
Step Three: Using Kids Choice Glue, adhere the die cut pieces together.
Step Four: Stamp a spring sentiment onto a piece of trimmed 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock using the Spring Sentiments stamp set. Then stamp eggs over the cardstock from the Color my Easter Eggs stamp set all over the 4.25×5.5 inch paper.
Step Five: Color the cardstock with alcohol markers. I used my Copics.
Step Six: Adhere the colored cardstock to an A2 card frame using some 10mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive. Adhere the mermaid to the card using both 10mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive and Kids Choice Glue.
So what do you think? Do you think I captured spring with my Mermaid and Easter Egg card? Let me know in the comments below. Until then, Happy Crafting.
