A time for all things new.
Hi everyone and welcome back to HeartcraftPaper!
Today I'm bringing you this floral card inspired by the Digi Doodle Studios Monthly Challenge called Spring Fever.
I especially liked this event because in my household we celebrate Nooruz. Many of you may not know what that is, but this is the Persian New Year. In ancient times, spring would ring in all things fresh and new. The house is cleaned from top to bottom, with adding in as many new items to the house as possible. Getting rid of the old that is no longer usable. I set up a table to celebrate, with fresh wheat grass, decorated eggs (tells you where Easter egg decorating comes from), hyacinths, coins, etc. As soon as that spring Equinox hits we start to party with food and family all day long. This is what was brought to my mind when I saw the theme of this challenge. I wanted flowers and tons of them. While I couldn't add every flower under the sun to my card, I went with next best thing! I used printed paper.
So now that you know a little bit about my inspiration for my card, I will tell you what you will need.
Step 3: The Dress
Moving on to the dress. I like to add folds to the dresses on my images. I do this first by laying down my base color. using an triangle shape on the dips of the hem. this would be where the dress would naturally have a pleat or fold in the fabric. The shadows will follow the same pattern but thinner. Not quite as wide, since the deeper into the fabric the less light.

Step 5: It's All About The Wings
Here is your finished image.
Once you have cut out your items in Cricut, gather them all together to assemble.
