EASTER GREETINGS

This is the only Easter card I made for this year, with the exception of Stella's chocolate bunny card. http://www.paperseedlings.com/2013/03/yum-bunny.html


Isn't that bunny just the cute-est little thing?? 

I found him in the stamp brush set Holiday Blitz in My Digital Studio . (Did you know that Stampin' Up! changed the name of this to MDS and reduced the price all the way down to $19.95???!!!) 

As always in MDS, I chose all my colors. I then added the mats around our little bunny in Easter-y colors. And printed it out on card stock on my printer. You get truer Stampin' Up! colors by having it printed through Stampin' Up!'s print service. But, I needed instant gratification. I don't plan well enough that I could wait for them to be printed and sent to me. 

Anyway, I completed this hybrid card by cutting out the bunny image using one of the Framelits from the Window Frames Collection. I added that atop the largest Framelit from the Apothecary Accents. Even after I embossed the Tempting Turquoise card front with the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder, it just seemed like it needed something more. That something more came from the wonderful Ovals Collection Framelits in the form of a plain white oval set horizontally. Perfect.

I added some paper piercing around the edges of the yellow Framelit using the Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack and a cute little yellow flower button. 

Happy Easter!

Smiles.

  1. Linda this is a beautiful card! Your cards blow mine out of the water! I posted on my blog looking for a guest blogger who is competent in stamping (unlike me). If you are interested let me know.
