Green Team Week #14-7 Step By Step - Welcome Spring!

February 17-23, 2014
Weekly Challenge: Spring is Here! (Oh don't we wish)
The team is celebrating the impending arrival of spring this week. We have created all sorts of wonderful projects for you using Maggie Holmes "Front Porch" paper collection (check it out here) and the Paper Smooches set "Green Thumb". Your challenge is to create something that to you represents spring.
The Green team has used both of these wonderful items to showcase their interpretation of what Spring means to them!

The Challenge this week is to Welcome Spring and what better way than to get your hands dirty and get outside in the garden!  I've created 4 cards to be included in a silent auction gardening basket at a local school's Spring Fling.  The paper and embellishment collection I'm using is called Front Porch and brought to you by Pebbles.  The stamps are from Paper Smooches and called Green Thumb.  All of these fabulous products can be found at Cuttin' and Stampin' Scrappy Supplies.


I did a quick search on Pinterest for a measurement chart and found this one at Poetic Artistry. 

The example uses one sheet of double sided paper, however, this paper is single sided so I'm using two sheets to get the same effect.  The sketch showing how to use the pieces for each card is also attached.

Now to get cutting!  I did not follow the order on the cutting template.  I went on my own and labeled each piece to be sure I had them all!

Then I started layering and embellishing!
