spring greetings card using digital cut flowers and butterflies #1

Hello everyone,
Finally spring is here, after a way too long winter. So I started thinking about the beautiful flowers I saw in the park. I imagined myself picking them in a basket and taking them home. Of course that is not allowed in here, but I can always dream.

Because I had an extra basket left over from my easter cards, I decided to fill it in with flowers. And with loads of butterflies. I kind of went wild on this card. But hey I finally saw the sun after almost 5  long months I am allowed.

So what did I use on this card?

Digital designs from bubblespark.com, the basket from one of the easter collections and the butterflies from beautiful spring. I cut them out with my silhouette machine, after tracing the png’s. I also cut different sizes of butterflies. A thing that is easy with a digital file at your disposal.

For the flowers I used a lot of prima flowers from boekenvoordeel.nl,  and some nice brads in flower shapes for the middle.

I needed something as a background, so I punched the EK success notebook edge punch on a smaller piece. After that I alternated stamping a chevron pattern, in hero arts shadow inks. The stamp was from My minds eye, Indie chick.

I distressed the edges with some peeled paint distress ink, to give it more definition. Also on the inside I stamped a greeting, from AMYR stamps, with colorbox chalk ink in chestnut roan.
To ground everything I used a border made with the fiskars grass edge punch.

To put accepts on the butterflies i used some colored pearls, and glossy accents.

I like to use digital designs because it lets me control the size of the design, and the colors as well.
