Hello! This week’s card is for the Easter Holiday. This card is similar to the birthday card I featured on my previous blog. I made several patterns from Adobe Illustrator and I wanted to use them in my card projects. The colors of the cardstock I used for this card are all pastel shade except for the meadow green polka dot. I just find them so pleasing to the eyes and is perfect for spring.
In this project I used the Pretty Pink Posh Easter Friends Stamp Set and a few dies as well. This stamp set is just so adorable and very easy to color.
The supplies that I used are the following: cardstocks (pale turquoise, light yellow, and white), green and white polka dot and stripes pattern paper. I also used scraps of light pink, pumpkin orange paper for the easter bunny and egg. I also used a few dies for the easter bunny egg, stitched circle and scalloped and lace trimming dies. For my tools, I used Memento Tuxedo Dye Ink, Shin Han Touch Twin Markers, Nuvo Drops in Carnation Pink, Distress Ink Pad in Squeezed Marmalade, WRMK Score and Trim Board, Sissix Big Shot Machine and a few basic crafting tools.
I scored and trimmed the pale turquoise base card to 4.5″x 5.5″ and I fold it in half. I trim 1.5″ of the front of the card. Next, I die cut the Easter bunny egg, the scalloped and circle die, as well as the lace trimming. I had to die cut the Easter bunny egg twice in light pink for the ears and on pumpkin orange paper for the dots in the egg.
To assemble the die cuts, I glued the lace trimming at the bottom of the front card. I made an allowance of 1/8 of an inch where I could put the glue. I cut a strip of the green and white polka dot and adhere it on top of the lace trimming and the front card to cover the line where the die cut and the paper are connected. I put the circle and scalloped dies together. I smudge the squeeze lemonade distress stamp on the edge of the smallest circle die cut to give it a color fade effect. I kinda mess it up a bit but it will be covered by the bunny and egg die cuts. I placed the latter on top of the circle and glued them halfway on the left side bottom of the front of the card.
For the insert card, I adhere the pattern paper with the green and yellow stripes inside. I cut a small stripe of the green and yellow stripe pattern and glued it on the upper part of the card. I stamped the girl with the bunny ears as well the small basket of easter eggs on a white cardstock and colored then with my Shin Han Touch Twin Markers. I stamped the Happy Easter sentiment on a pale turquoise paper with my Memento Tuxedo Dye Ink and fuzzy cut all the stamps.
I glued the stamps in the middle of the insert card. I put a few small dots of Nuvo Drops in Carnation Pink to add more dimension.
I will be sharing another Easter card project before the holiday so thanks for dropping by and hope to see you on my next blog!
