Spring is definitely in the air and this week at The Cuttlebug Spot it is no exception. My Spring themed card starts with my Cuttlebug Leafy Branches folder. I cut an oval in the center with my Nesties to allow the pretty Spring paper to show through and rimmed it with a scalloped frame also cut with my Nesties. The birdhouse, branch, leaves, and bird were all cut using my new Cottage Cutz die from The Scrapping Cottage. These fabulous dies are designed by and made exclusively for The Scrapping Cottage by Go Kreate. I used Tim Holtz distress embossing power on the branch and cut many leaves in both white and green and cuttled them individually with the Leafy Branches folder for texture. Some of the leaves were popped directly over the base embossing and some were just thrown in for interest. I also used a leaf shape for the bird's wing and cuttled it with one of the textures from the Cuttlebug Snow Fun emboss/die combo set. the butterfllies are a Martha Stewart punch, the corners are a punch from EK Success and the flowers are by Prima. Be sure to stop by The Cuttlebug Spot to see all of the fabulous creations the other Design Team members have done and we invite you to play along.
