Play along at the Festive Friday Challenge. DT members provide written or video instructions for their projects each challenge! Find us @festivefridaychallenge or festivefridaychallenge.com. New challenges every other Friday! #cardchallenge

You can make today’s card in about 5 minutes!

Sometimes being a cardmaker has nothing to do with stamping or sentiments. My card for Festive Friday doesn’t have either! It’s a great card to introduce new cardmakers to watercolors and diecutting. So, let’s take a look!

How exciting that winter is almost over! That’s why we’re celebrating SPRING over at Festive Friday! The perfect pairing is the color Green. Of course you can choose to do one or the other, or both when you link up with us this challenge.

Looking for ideas – here’s a few:

  • CASE one of the DT projects and add your own twist to our designs. Of course, if you blog about it, we would love for you to mention the Designer as your inspiration for your project.
  • Pull out your favorite floral stamps. If they haven’t been your go-to because of the weather, now’s the time to reacquaint yourself!
  • A fun design with sunshine and fuzzy spring animals is totally an option!
  • Thinking more about St. Patrick’s Day? Go for the green and maybe a leprechaun or two!

Here’s my take:
