I have the cutest spring handmade card ideas for you today. I used the Stampin’ UP! notecards to create all of these cards. The finished card size is 3-1/2″ x 5″.
Spring Handmade Card Ideas
I used the Stampin’ UP! Happy Hedgehog stamp set and very limited other supplies to create these fun and simple handmade cards.
I cut seven pieces of Basic Whtie Thick cardstock at 3″ x 4-1/2″. Next, I cut seven pieces of Highland Heather cardstock at 3-1/8″ x 4-5/8″. I decided the easiest thing to do would be to use the same cardstock colors and change up my inks.
For this card, I used the double oval punch from Stampin’ UP! The oval punch is a perfect punch to have in your craft room because it lends itself to quick and easy crafting. I highly recommend this tool.
Shadowing is a great trick for adding a little bit of depth to your cards. As you can see on each of the cards I’ve added shading or shadowing under the hedgehogs.
This creates the feeling of the hedgehog being grounded to something. You don’t want your hedgie to look like he’s just levitating in the air, that would be creepy.
For this card, I opted to repeat stamp the tree. However, I stamped the trunk of the tree off the edge so it just looks like flowers. I then colored the flowers using Stampin’ Blends. Stampin’ Blends are my very favorite coloring tool.
The last card I created was using the sweet little bird from the Happy Hedgehog stamp set. This is probably the most spring of all the spring handmade card ideas. I feel like it encompasses the springtime feel.
I colored the bottom of the card with Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends and the bird is colored with Pool Party and the flowering with Highland Heather.
The sky is colored with Pool Party. To achieve this look I lightly swept the top of the card with the Pool Party Stampin’ Blends.
