It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made an Easter card using High Hopes Rubber Stamps Easter Gnome – SLF034 for the main image and Beautiful Blessings – FDG030 for the sentiment. I love to colour gnomes and was so excited when I saw this adorable character in the High Hopes Rubber Stamps new “This and That” Spring Release.
To make my card this week, I began with a card base of Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock, cut and scored to be 5.5″ x 4.25″. I cut Forever In Time – Viola cardstock to be the same size as the base card and attached it using double-sided tape. Echo Park – Welcome Easter cardstock and Forever In Time – Sky cardstock were die cut using My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers and my Cuttlebug. I trimmed the Forever In Time – Sky cardstock to 2″. Both pieces were inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Evergreen Bough around all edges. I applied the smaller piece to the centre of the egg background and then applied U-Line Double-sided tape and popped it up onto the base background.
Using PinkFresh Studio – Essentials: Folk Edge Squares, I die cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card cardstock. The image was then stamped onto it with my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. I stamped the sentiment onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card cardstock and die cut it with My Creative Time – Bunch of Fun Circle Dies. The image and frame around it were coloured in with Copic Markers.
The remainder of the card was now ready to finish being assembled. I applied U-Line double-sided tape to the back of the image and sentiment and popped them up onto the egg background. Lastly, I added in a few YNS Gumdrops to complete the card.
