Wishing you Sunshine!

You'd think that I would have thought to create a New Year card this week considering that big celebration is just around the corner now... ah, but instead all I can think about is how much I want it to be sunny and bright!  Given the fact that it is neither sunny nor bright right now in Michigan (snowy and bright... yes, SUNNY, no), I decided to create this little sunshine mini card instead using the two largest French Flair dies and believe it or not, the Poinsettia 2 die as well.  I just love that die and wondered if by simply changing the colors used if I could make a more spring-like flower rather than the traditional Christmas flower that it is. I so enjoy when it is possible to use seasonal products for times other than the actual season the product was intended, if you know what I mean.

 
To create this quick and easy card. I used the largest XL Stackers French Flair die and cut it out from some rustic white cardstock. I then used the next smaller die to cut my patterned paper and adhered them together and scored it in half to create the mini card. Next I cut the Poinsettia 2 die out from green, yellow and rustic white to create my "Spring" flower. I added some gems for a bit of bling and attached the sentiment on a piece of scrap cardstock. I love that Cheery Lynn Designs dies make it possible to create a quick and easy card that is so pretty too!

Enjoy the rest of your day and don't forget to come back again tomorrow for more inspiration from the Cheery Lynn Designs Design Team!

  2. Beth, wow, who would have thought the poinsettia would make such a lovely Spring flower. Great idea and using the large French Flair folded in half is brilliant.
