Happy Spring with ScrapbookPal

As I sit here and type with the window open next to me, I am reminded that spring is just around the corner and I can't wait to go out and start working in my garden.  I can hear the water that has melted from the snow as it drips of the back deck, I hear the sweet call of the birds in my back yard, and my kids are all excited to see the (muddy) ground again.  With these thoughts in mind, I thought it would be fun to do a spring themed card for the ScrapbookPal blog with the new Nate's ABC's cartridge that I received from ScrapbookPal this month.

To re-create this card, you will need:
-Cricut machine and Nate's ABC's cartridge
-Patterned paper (mine is We R Memory Keepers)
-Cardstock in various colors to match your patterned paper (I used Stampin' Up!)
-Tombow dual brush pen to match your cardstock and patterned paper
-Sentiment (mine is a SRM Sticker)
-Scissors
-Ribbon
-Button

Let's get started:
-Cut your card base at 11 x 5 1/2 inches and fold in half to make a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch card.
-Cut the circles from the Nate's ABC's cartridge at 4 1/2 inches for the color background and 4 1/4 inches for the white base and layer these two together.  Draw stitches around the white circle with a Tombow dual brush pen.
-Cut the umbrella and boot image from the Nate's ABC's cartridge along with all the layers at 2 3/4 inches.  Add a little ink from the Tombow dual brush pen to add depth if you wish.  Layer the pieces together and adhere to the center of the circle base with dimensional adhesive.
-Cut and adhere 5 x 5 inch piece of patterend paper to the center of the 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch card base.
-Tie a ribbon around the patterned paper and card base and finish it off with a bow.
-Adhere the circle with the image over the center of the patterened paper with dimensional adhesive.
-Add a button to the center of the bow and a sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope I have inspred you to get started on some spring themed projects of your own.
