Spring Week: A Spring-inspired Story Card

Hi everyone!

We are kicking off Spring Week on the Technique Tuesday blog. Our Creative Team will be sharing projects all this week that have been inspired by Spring. You'll see projects with out of the box techniques, Spring colors and even some DIY flowers. So sit back, relax and get ready for some fun stuff.

And Sunday does mean it is Story Card Sunday around here so this Spring Week post features a Spring-inspired pocket page-friendly Story Card. Are you ready for it? Let's do it!

Is that fun or what?! Like a lot of the Story Cards we feature, this one would look great in a pocket page, as well as on a traditional scrapbook page or greeting card. Let me show you how you can make one like it!

Start by cutting a base card with Technique Tuesday's Memo Pad Card DIY Steel Dies. You'll also want to cut eight small hearts with the Nested Hearts steel dies

A Story Card Sunday tutorial from TechniqueTuesday.comStamp the jar from the Love Bug Jar clear stamp set onto the base card. Allow a little bit of the jar to not be stamped on the card.

A Story Card Sunday tutorial from TechniqueTuesday.comUse a needle to poke holes onto the card. Bring floss through the holes to mimic the look of stems. If you are not a stitcher, consider using a green pen to draw the stems.

So that wraps up this week's Story Card and the first Spring Week post. Be sure to tune into tomorrow to see another Spring-inspired project by another Technique Tuesday Creative Team member.
