Cherry Blossoms

I have seen many beautiful pictures of the cherry blossom trees blooming, and hope to see them in person someday. It's Mindy with you today, sharing a card with these beautiful blossoms.  I hope you like it, and are inspired by it's beauty.

There are so many dies and stamps in the Classy Cards n' Such Online Store, I'm sure you will find many to add to your collection. I started with the Cherry Blossoms die cut set from Spellbinders and cut the largest flower die from pink paper ribbon.  This is a twisted paper that forms a cording, but can be unfurled then die cut. I like it because it is textured and thin, but many card stock brands will work as well. I have even used paper coffee filters before.  

I embossed a sheet of yellow card stock with the Dazzling Sunburst folder by Ecstasy Crafts and mounted it behind a die cut circle cut in my card front.  I assembled the branch and flowers with Art Institute Dries Clear Adhesive then attached it to the circle edge and spread it across the opening.  After attaching a cute butterfly near the flowers, I die cut a tag from the A 2 Filigree Delight Set also from Spellbinders. I shaded the tag and added the phrase from Just the Right Words by Becca Feeken for JustRite Stamps.  The tag was adhered using foam tape below the opening to complete the card.
