Spring is Here card!

Here again is another of my current favorite simple cards which I shared yesterday with my stamp group! Just a 5 1/2" x 4/1/4" card with a 5" by 2 1/4" piece of DP. Punch out a portion of whatever corresponding shape fits your stamped image! (See my previous post under my Tutorials label to place the punch closer to punch edge.) I've made similar cards using round, oval scalloped and heart punches also. What could be simpler? Then embellish with whatever you've got handy to finish it off & you've got a simple/quick card ready to mail!
Paper: The Paper Company Mandarin Cardstock; DCWV DP
Stamp: Studio G $1 stamp from Michaels
Punch: Marvy Uchida 1 3/4" square
Embellishments: Dew Drops by The Robin's Nest; Fibers by Making Memories

Since my email is on "hiatus", Gwen, I wanted to let you know that I tried to find the ones @ Michaels (new on in CG) today & was unsuccessful, but they've just opened & had no $1 stamps, no acrylic stamps, etc., so imagine they've not gotten in everything that the eventually will. Anyway, may not be available @ any Michaels here, who knows? Worth a try to find them though, I think! They are so fun!!!
