In keeping with the spring theme of yesterday's layout shares, it's only fair that we asked a few of our card designers to create spring themed cards to share with you as well!
"Thanks For Everything" card, by Gretchen McElveen.
When I think of Spring I think pretty, colorful flowers! So I cut out several flowers from the Sand and Surf line to use on this thank you card. I used a red flower button as a fun center for one of the flowers and the sentiment is from the Miniature Sentiments stickers sheet. I even threw the red scalloped border sticker from the All American Alpha + Bits on this card! Thanks for looking!

"Wish You Were Here" card, by Gretchen McElveen.
I was really inspired by Laura Vegas's "Poolside" layout on this month's free Project Sheet. If you have not see it yet, check it out HERE. I love the big sun she created on her layout and I totally copied that idea on this card! I cut the sentiment out of the Sand and Surf Borders sheet and used a punch to add a few butterflies. I finished off the card with a couple of flags and buttons. Thanks for looking!

“Hey Sunshine” card, by Carina Lindholm.
I covered the card base in green dotted paper and hand stitched around the edges using pink embroidery floss. To decorate my card I used some cut outs from the cute cuts sheet,a flower sticker and a scallop chipboard border.

”Spring Is In The Air” card, by Carina Lindholm.
This card makes me happy. I LOVE the colors and I love to work with Bellas designer tapes. I used a few different colors on this card. I cut the tape strips into banners before adhering them to the card using my sewing machine.

“Bright Sunny Days” card, by Laurie Schmidlin.
For my card, I combined elements from a couple of collections. I used the borders paper from the Sunshine & Happiness collection and some Journaling Stickers and Alpha+Bits from the Easter Flings and Spring Things collection! That happy sun makes me smile every time I see it, and I hope it makes the recipient smile as well!

“Birthday Wishes” card, by Laurie Schmidlin.
Birthday cards are one of my favorite kind of Bella cards to make! The fun and happy colors just lend themselves so well to celebrations! I used several elements from the Birthday Girl collection to make my card. For a fun twist on a regular card, I cut the top part of the card a bit shorter so some of the patterned paper on the inside would show from the front.

“Friends” card, by Wendy Wagner.
I thought it would be fun to take the Sand & Surf collection and make a bright fun friends card! I went outside my normal creating and didn't ink or distress anything! It was a challenge for me! The Feathers are so fun to work with & I love the texture they add to any project!

"Spring" card, by Wendy Wagner.
This little card maybe small but it is big with wonderful supplies from Bella! Some of the Chipboard icons are popped double. I layered the feathers behind to add some texture. I used some ink, very little for me. I first glued down the feathers, then I added the Chipboard Icons and lastly added the gems and stickles. This card is perfect for anything!
