CAS Spring!!

Hello all... I haven't posted in a long time. After the baby, we moved half way around the world to the US.. It took us some time to get settled here with the baby and now we have to look after the baby alone!! So now I get very very limited time to craft. It was very exciting to see snow for the first time and now I'm waiting to see Spring bloom.

Anyway, on to the card!!

I was inspired by the lattice cards that Indira had posted (check them here) and was determined to make one!! And now, especially with the time crunch I'm attracted to CAS cards!! (check my previous one here) So here is my card, inspired by the Spring flowers.




I made a Spring wreath around the round lattice window. I made the flowers using some new punches that I bought recently. I cut the leaves using punches. I couldn't stop myself from adding a cute butterfly, again to show off my newly bought punch :D

A closer look



A view from the side.


I have not added any sentiment. I'm planning to add it as required.

I love how this card has turned out!!

I'm planning to buy a die-cutting/embossing machine in the near future. Any suggestions/advice would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks in advance.

Do tell me your thoughts and comments. Hope to see you soon!

Bee-utiful lattice look w/ flowers & embellishing. I have a Sizzix BIGkick that die cuts & embosses. Have had it quite some time & like it. Thank you for entering OSAAT Ch206 Anything Goes.

Oh, Berina What a come back :) Glad that you are back crafting amidst this time. Your wreath card looks beautiful! I got my big shot recently, I would suggest the same. But since you are in the US, you have plenty other options too. Once you get settled you can really hunt and find a good one :) Cuttle bug is also pretty good I think. All the best :) Hope your sweet baby is doing good :)

I love your wreath Berina. I would look into a Cameo silhouette for die cutting. I have been a long time Cricut lover but now love my Cameo even more.
