Today, I am going to share with you a card I made using one of our Easter sets. I am using the Hello Easter stamp set which is the set I just featured in my latest Online Class. I wanted to share with everyone something you could do with this Easter set other than making just cards for the Easter Holiday. Here’s a look at today’s card.
Tips & Tricks:
I started out creating this card with stamping the egg and bunny on the same piece of Whisper White Cardstock. Once I had the images stamped the way I wanted them I used the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies to cut the egg out. The oval is not exactly a perfect fit but you can come back with your paper snips and trim the white away. Once that was done; I had to fussy cut the bunny (which was stamped in Chocolate Chip Classic Ink) out. It was actually a very easy image to cut it out, so don’t be afraid to take those snips and go to town.
My card base is a piece of Lemon Lime Twist Cardstock cut at 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2. I added a Whisper White mat cut to 4 x 5 1/4, and a piece of Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper in Lemon Lime Twist cut at 3 3/4 x 5. I picked this paper because it had such pretty floral imagery and I felt was perfect for a Spring Card. I layered a piece of Whisper White Cardstock that I cut just big enough to hold the egg, and I matted it with a piece of Peekaboo Peach Cardstock cut just 1/4″ bigger then the whisper white piece. I placed the egg in the center of this rectangle with a couple Stampin’ dimensionals, I then placed the bunny on the egg with another dimensional. I stamped the “Hello Spring” sentiment on a scrap of Peekaboo Peach and ounces it out with the duet banner punch. I then added it to the egg with a little snail.
To finish off the card I added a little Peekaboo Peach Baker’s Twine at the top. I used about 24″ or so just enough to run on the inside of the card and tie a bow on the outside. I also added a few of the tutti-Frutti adhesive backed sequins to add a little sparkle to the card.
In closing I want you to think about stamps that you think are strictly a holiday set in a different way buy just changing the designer series paper and colors you use.
