Silhouette 25-Pack Chipboard

Today I’m showing you a springy card.  I can’t get enough of spring!  This card is on a kraft base, with yellow patterned paper from Recollections.  I used a green Silhouette pen to sketch a border around the patterned paper using the stitching feature.  It’s so nice and easy to add a little something to your cards with the stitching feature!  I love that it's a subtle feature- it almost blends right in- but it really finished off the card to add it.  It would have looked so much more empty without the border.

I added these flowers that I bought from the Silhouette online store.  I didn’t add the little swirl that came with them, because I liked the flower pot on its own.  The nice thing was that I was able to easily make two of them, because *spoiler alert* they’re going to be our Mother’s Day cards for my mom and mother in law this year.

Head in over to see what the DT has created for you inspiration and link up today.
