Spring is on the way!

Hello everyone, and thank you for visiting! Today I am sharing a tutorial for a springer card. These cards are so easy and such fun to make.    

You will need

  • a piece of card 10" x 5"
  • small pieces of paper - one about 3 5/8" square to mat your embellishment, and another one  2 1/4" square - cut from corner to corner (diagonally) to decorate the base of the card.
  • scraps of card for your sentiment
I used So Saffron  (131285) and Pool Party from the Subtles Designer Series Paper (130135) for the blue and yellow card and Pink Pirouette (116203) and Baked Brown Sugar from the 2013-15 In Color DSP collection (130136) for the brown and pink version.
I also used my

  • Stampin' Trimmer (129722)
  • The "And Many More" stamp set (134276)
  • Large Oval Punch (119855)
  • Scallop Oval (119856)
  • Butterfly Thinlits dies (137360) 
With the card in landscape orientation, score  at 2 1/2 inches and 5 inches.  Mark the card at 7 1/2 inches (both edges) the turn the card to portrait orientation and mark at 2 1/2 inches.

Align the mark you just made with one of the marks on the long side.  Cut away the corner (if you're nervous, join with a pencil line first and use a ruler and craft knife).  Repeat with the other side.

Score diagonally from the corner you just made to the further score line (the one you made  at 2 1/2 inches ), then repeat from the opposite corner.  The score lines should cross on the 5  inch score line.

Fold the card - mountain fold the diagonal lines, valley fold on the horizontal lines.

I love the butterflies -  the  Butterfly Thinlits dies are in the Spring/Summer Stampin' Up! catalogue, which is published today.  And, even better-  today is the start of Sale-a-Bration, which means that  for every £45 you spend in one order (before P & P) you can choose a FREE product from the Sale-a-Bration brochure.
