Everything’s Coming Up Carrots for Spring!

It might not look like Spring outside here in Northern Minnesota, but it’s time to start thinking about Spring cards. I had some fun creating this carrot card using the Thanks a Bunch stamp set from Sale-A-Bration, and the awesome Dandy Deeds designer series papers. Thanks to Julie Gilson for the inspiration. Here’s my card:

These are the measurements I used:

  • Fresh Freesia cardstock panel: 5 1/4″ by 4″
  • DSP: 5 1/8″ by 3 7/8″
  • Fresh Freesia cardstock for middle of card: 3 1/8″ by 4 3/8″
  • Basic White card stock panel: 3″ by 4 1/4″
  • Scrap of Basic White card stock: 4 by 5″ or so

I started by adhering the first two layers onto the card front. Then I stamped five carrots on the scrap piece of Basic White card stock using Pale Papaya ink, with the accent stamp in Pumpkin Pie. I also stamped some leaves in Garden Green. I fussy cut the carrots and the leaves.

I then stamped some of the carrot ‘fronds’ onto the 3 by 4 1/4″ white panel at the top, to top off the carrot bunch. I then arranged the five carrots onto the white panel, gluing some and popping some up with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I then adhered the smaller Fresh Freesia panel onto the back of the carrot bunch panel.

Finally, I stamped a sentiment in Fresh Freesia ink onto a 3/4″ strip of white card stock and then used the Lovely Labels Pick A Punch to punch it out. I added it to the front of the card with Dimensionals, and popped on two Adhesive Flat Pearls. I tied a double bow of Linen Thread and attached it with a glue dot. Done
