Card, Papertrey Ink

Spring-Themed Thank You Cards

by May Park-

Happy Monday, crafty friends! Hope you had a wonderful weekend. Now that the winter holiday season is over, I’m finally getting more spare time to create some post-winter-themed projects. Thank you cards, Valentine’s Day cards, friendship cards, and so many other things through my head! Since my last few cards have been clean and simple, I decided to make something that felt a bit more colorful and fancier using a bow and some flowers.

Here is a set of Thank You cards which make me think of one fine Spring day. I felt like Spring arrived here while I was making cards. Please don’t get me wrong! I know we just passed the first week of the new year and still have a couple of months of winter left. Anyway what do you think? Can you feel the warm and bright vibe from my cards? I Hope So! 😉

To create these beautiful blossom and leaves, l used a Rosie Posie stamp set and a Rosie Posie die collection, and a Signature Greetings stamp set for the sentiment from Papertrey Ink. I put three flowers and three leaves together on each of my cards, because I learned that an odd number of objects, especially three, can give balance to my project. Does this theory work for you? It works for me so far.

Yesterday I put away all the holiday decorations including our Christmas tree one month earlier than last year, and trimmed the dead leaves off several plants on my patio. My home is getting ready for the beautiful Spring coming. And I’m planning to create a couple of Spring-themed cards this week. Hope there is someone out there like me who can’t wait to have Spring back.

Thank you very much for stopping by my blog. Happy crafting!
