Easter Card Trio

I happened to see this stamp in a bin at the craft store last week and scooped it up because it reminded me of SU’s A Good Egg. The matching Easter greeting was also too cute to pass up! Since I was snowed in today, I had time to make three versions of Easter cards–read on for the details.

Above: Card base is Barely Banana card stock, layered with Shades of Spring DSP. Stamped image is from Studio G, stamped on Gina K luxury white card stock, colored in with Copic Markers. After coloring in the chick, I applied glue using the 2-way Glue Pen and sprinkled Martha Stewart white flocking powder on top.  (Close up view below). I also embellished the shell using the Glue Pen and Dazzling Diamonds Glitter.

To finish off the card, I made a faux bow by taking Certainly Celery Satin Ribbon, making two loops, and pinching the center with a Circle Rhinestone Brad.

The second card is a 4 1/4″ square card, on Gina K luxury base weight card stock, layered with Tall Tales DSP cut to 4″ square. I stamped the chick and colored it in with Copic markers again, making it fuzzy with Martha Stewart flocking powder. Then, I layered it on Barely Banana card stock, and adhered it to the base with Stampin Dimensionals.

Lastly, the third version uses many of the same techniques I described above. In addition, I paper pierced around the main layer and popped it up with Stampin Dimensionals. The patterned paper is from Shades of Spring and goes perfectly with the theme of this card.

Elegant Place Cards–Shades of Spring

I made these place cards for my Aunt’s 50th Birthday party. I wanted them to be elegant and fun, but not too formal. Shades of Spring DSP made a perfect backdrop for the place cards, cut to 3 1/2″ x 2″. The Basic Black card stock was cut to just under 3 3/4″ x 4 1/2″. Then, I used the Scallop Trim Border Punch along the 3 3/4″ side and folded it in half as shown.

Next, I adhered the Shades of Spring DSP to the black card stock with SNAIL adhesive. The ribbon is Certainly Celery 5/8″ Satin Ribbon, which I tied around the inside of the place card and knotted in the front.

The names and table numbers were printed on the computer, punched out with the Large Oval Punch and layered on Basic Black card stock I punched out with the Scalloped Oval Punch. That was then attached to the front with a Stampin Dimensional.
