The Spring is here

I made Spring cards more than I had planned to make. Well, these first six cards I sent to the cancer association of Satakunta in Pori. Like the Christmas cards they will be handed out to strangers. I hope the recipients will like them. I'm not entirely satisfied with all of them but I do like them.

I had ordered quite a few new diecutting sets. They are all by Marianne Design. The Oval shape set I had bought second hand but all the rest are new. The embossing folder is the Regal checkerboard by Creative expressions. I tried to use up my cardstock and scrapbook paper stashes but obviously I could never find the right shade I needed so I was forced to get some new ones. I used Distress inks to give some shading to the flowers and the greens.

It took me a few weeks to plan, make prototypes and finally actually make the cards. But once I got a couple of the cards almost ready the rest were easier to make. The twig wreath was a disappointment because the willow cats didn't pop-up…
