Square Spring Card

Today's try a new technique at Splitcoast Stampers is make a Spring Card, they sure look complicated but really they're not, well as long as you follow the directions, they are really easy. So when I got home from work today, that's what I did. I knew the image to use already and I've been practicing the fold while I was work (on my break ... really!) and all I had to do is just go through my piles of patterned paper and VOILA!


Stamps: Embrace by Penny Black and sentiment from Absolutely Fabulous by Stampin' Up

Paper: Whisper White and Pretty in Pink card stock from Stampin' Up and Pattern Paper by Mind's Eye Collection

Ink: Jet Black Staz-on Ink and Prisma water-color

Accessories: Stamping dimensional
