Cute Card Thursday Challenge 310 - Spring Theme

Happy Thursday!

Inspired by Stamping is sponsoring this week's Cute Card Thursday Challenge, which is a Spring Theme.

Here is my DT card:

Leah has a great WHW Tutorial on the IBS Blog on creating a frame with dies.

To create this fancy fold card, I started with a standard A2 card (5 1/2 x 8 1/2, scored at 4 1/4) and added the right panel/flap (5 1/2 x 4 3/4, scored at 1/2).  I die cut the curved edge on the left flap and mat on the right flap.  A mini velcro dot holds the card closed.

I watercolored the gorgeous Iris (my favorite flower) image from the Beautiful Iris (one of my favorite IBS sets) stamp set.  The sentiment is from the same set. I used the Fancy Label Dies 2 (largest and second largest) for the frame/windows.

Now that you have seen my card, please hop on over to the Cute Card Thursday Challenge Blog for more Spring-Themed inspiration and to get all the details on participating in this week's challenge.

Thanks for stopping by!
