Embossed Spring Cards

Are you seeing more signs of Spring? Do you hear the birds chirping in the morning?
 I decided to make some cards celebrating the nature of Spring!
 I was in the mood to make some super clean simple white cards. I cut the bird on a branch, the hummingbird and the flowers with the Silhouette die cut machine. I dry embossed some polka dots and a diamond pattern backgrounds, to add some texture to the muted color scheme.
I used some turquoise slanted striped paper for the actual cards. It adds a nice frame for the mats. I popped up all the die-cuts with thick double stick tape. Since it is spring I thought some bling was necessary so I stuck the rhinestones on the cards too.
 Below is what the inside of the flower card looks like. I love the phrase and was so happy that I could center it for the inside of the card. I love the cute springy honeycomb print on the inside of the cards too.

 So these cards have already flown the coop! Sent them off to a sweet friend, who loves spring as much as I do!!

Are the trees blooming in your town?  They are like eye candy, waking up our souls. Can't help but love Springs first blooms!
