Think Spring!

Where I live on the West Coast we have been having lots of sunny days and highs in the upper 50's to lower 60's.  So there are lots of signs of spring popping up.  Now I know that is not the case for a lot of you so I made this card with you in mind.

I recently purchased a a few new Die-Namics dies and this was one of them.  My card base is 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" green card stock.  I cut an orange mat 4" X 5 1/4" and then the patterned paper mat was cut at 3 7/8" X 5 1/8".

I cut a mat for my die cut to sit on.  I found the mat in Elegant Edges Cricut Cartridge.  I sized the mat to fit my image.  I cut the oblong  image and its shadow with my Cricut Explore.  Love that Bluetooth feature.  I ran the green mat through my eBosser and embossed it with some little flowers.  I also used my eBosser to die cut my watering can.  I didn't add a sentiment yet because I am not sure yet how I will use the card.

Thanks for visiting.
