Welcome Spring Card with Southern Ridge Trading Company


Hello to all of our Southern Trading Company Fans!!! 
Are ready to "Welcome Spring"!
In Memphis, TN it has been raining a lot but we are seeing the signs of Spring...
Robins, Cardinals and my favorite Bluebirds are coming home to build their nest. 
Of course the daffodils are trying to peek through the ground!
All a sure sign of Spring!!!
SO....
I decided to celebrate with creating a beautiful "Welcome Spring" Card using several of Southern Ridge Trading Company Chipboard Elements along with the Bubble Wrap Stencil. 


Begin by adhering a distress piece of pattern paper to the top of a 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" Kraft card base. 
Lay Bubble Wrap Stencil on top; apply white gesso using palette knife. Dry


Punch image from pattern paper with circle punch; adhere to top of paper doily. 
Adhere to top of card front. 


Emboss Swirly Flourish Element and  Demask Corners with Chunky Rust Baked Texture using embossing powder and embossing gun. 
Repeat with Patina Oxide Baked Texture on one of the feathers from the Tribal Feathers Mix.


Adhere embossed pieces to top of card front. 


Fussy cut small bluebird from pattern paper.
 Add to top of card with pop dots. 


Add fussy cut leaves to card along with ribbon and twine bows. 


Fussy cut "Welcome Spring" from pattern paper; layer to Kraft card stock. 
Add to front of card with pop dots.
