Is It Spring Yet?! January Workshop Card

I know you have all been patiently waiting for instructions for my January workshop projects. So . . . without further ado, here they are!!!!

Is It Spring Yet?!

This is a fairly simple card . . . the materials are posted on my Stampin' Up! Projects page (http://cathyhansen.stampinup.net). The additional details, including measurements, are as follows:

Cut Always Artichoke card stock to 5 1/2" x 8 1/2"; score at 4 1/4" to make card base. Cut Crushed Curry, Rich Razzleberry, and Very Vanilla OR Whisper White card stock to 5 1/4" x 2". Adhere Crushed Curry to bottom front of card, leaving about 1/8" border at bottom and sides.

Trim sides, bottom, and corners of the Whisper White or Very Vanilla with the new Scallop Trim punches (see Stampin' Up! Occasions Mini and Sale-a-Bration Brochure for more info on these new punches); line up top edges and adhere to Rich Razzleberry. Cut a piece of Old Olive Satin Ribbon (2010 Occasions Mini) at about 6 1/2"; thread through a Styled Silver or Vanilla ribbon slide (found in Hodgepodge Hardware); adhere to Very Vanilla or Whisper White with a mini glue dot behind the ribbon slide; then use SNAIL Adhesive to adhere ends of ribbon to back of Rich Razzleberry. Adhere this piece with SNAIL Adhesive to top of card above Crushed Curry.

Cut Very Vanilla or Whisper White card stock to 5 1/4" x 4"; adhere to inside of card. With Basic Black Classic Ink, stamp hat image (Garden from the Heart; 2010 Occasions Mini) on scrap paper; stamp gloves and trowel image in lower right corner on inside of card. Color both images with Stampin' Write Markers. Cut out hat and adhere to front of card, over ribbon, with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Stamp curly word image (Flight of the Butterflies) close to right edge of Crushed Curry on lower front of card.

Punch several butterlies (Beautiful Wings Embosslit Die; 2010 Occasions Mini) from Rich Razzleberry and Vellum card stock and adhere to the front of card.

Hope you enjoyed this card! Please contact me if you have questions.
