Post 157: Spring Card: Cheers

Hi friends :)

I'd like to share a spring inspired card today :) This is an A2 size top folding card.  I was inspired by this beautiful card made by the amazing Shay for W & W's Rerun No. 18 Challenge. I loved the woodgrain pattern in the background and the die cut word in the center so I did  my own take on the same with the supplies I have. 

Synopsis of the Process:

-First I took an A2 size white card panel, embossed it using an embossing folder to give a woodgrain texture in the background. 

-Die cut the word cheers in green cardstock. 

- Stamped the leaves from 2 stamp sets onto water color paper, colored them with zig markers and an aqua brush and then fussy cut them. 

- Prepped the card panel by trimming it slightly and adhering it to a light yellow cardbase so that only a little strip of yellow was visible then added a strip of washi tape with diagonal green stripes at the bottom. 

- Then arranged the die cut word cheers and leaves and adhered them to the card panel.

- Fussy cut some butterfly images from a pattern paper and added them to the card

-Finally, embellished the card with colored pearls to bring in all the colors from the moodboard including red
