Here is a card made with the Graphic 45 Seasons collection. The card base is made with kraft paper on a double gate fold card base.
The entire card is matted with Brown Eyes from My Colors card stock. The "Bloom bright all Season" is a piece of Ephemera. I made a collage consisting of a die cut flower, one of the chip board buttons (painted purple) with a knot of ivory seam binding, and a fussy cut bouquet of tulips from the patterned paper.
The middle panels are handmade pockets with a die cut tag in each. The pockets are made by trimming a pocket and a tag in half. The sentiments on the tags are stickers.
The front panels are made from a trimmed piece of ephemera. The embellishment is removable. I painted a mini clothespin with purple acrylic paint, matted a 7/8 inch square "spring" sticker on ivory, and added it to the clothespin. This is attached to a loopy bow made with seam binding.
I added a belly band with a hand made pinwheel over the ends, which makes the belly band appear endless.
