About Moi

I was born in June 1981, I'm a hearing impaired paper-crafter who loves all things crafty. I sew, although I'm still very much a novice at sewing. I bake and cook hopefully all kinds of delicious treats. I have a huge passion for photography and the camera {yes I'm old school I still use an actual camera} is never far from me. I also love creative writing from making up sentiments/verses for my cards and other paper-craft projects to penning some fiction. I am an avid reader and I may even throw in some book reviews on here too!

Spring has sprung springing card

Okay so I admit I'm rambling a lot in the title but I don't really know how to explain it {nothing new there then}. 

For this challenge {I'm very happy to finally feeling fit enough to try some crafting} I have coloured using promarkers Ike's image and cut it out.  I stuck it onto a floral paper so it looks as though there is something in the basket.  I then stuck a strip of white card on the back so it will "spring" up and down.

I then cut that tight so there wasn't a border.  I heat embossed a square in green and then cut my own grass blades from it.  Before I backed my card, I cut a small hole in the paper and popped the image in it.  When gluing the paper to the card I missed out the bit under the slidey thing for the springing image.

Once the image was in place I stuck the grass blades on using the heat gun and only gluing the very bottom of the blades. 

I die cut two leaves and hand wrote in green "Spring has Sprung"...I wanted them in the bottom corner but they didn't fit so they went up the top.

This card is for Ike's challenge which can be found here: http://ikesworldchallengeblog.blogspot.co.uk/
