Spring Card tutorial



Several people have asked how I created my spring cards. I wrote a tutorial showing you step by step how to fold and cut your paper to create a square spring card. You can reach it from My Tutorials on the right side of this page. This scene was stamped on Curious Cryogen White paper with Brilliance Graphite Ink. Copics used...G24 Willow for the grass with some Y15 Cadmium Yellow under the trees. G24 again as well as G94 Grayish Olive for the trees, E39 Leather for the tree trunks. The schoolhouse is E13 Light Suntan, the door E07 Light Mahogany. The path is E51 Milky White shaded with E53 Raw Silk. And lastly the sky is B60 Pale Blue Gray, I just layered it until I got the intensity I wanted, being sure to leave some white spots for clouds. All stamps are from Stampscapes. Peel off stickers were added as a finishing touch. When flat, the card will fit in a 5 1/2 inch square envelope.

You are really going to town girl. I love that you give each of the color names and numbers. It helps us learn what they can really look like. Can you give us a link for the stick ons. I can't find any good ones locally. Thanks for the tutorial.
