It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made an Easter card using High Hopes Rubber Stamps Ellie & Friends – TDG025 for the image and Happy Easter! – F096 for the sentiment. We are celebrating our new “Spring Fever Release” this month and who couldn’t love this adorable image!
To make my card this week, I began with a card base of AC Cardstock – White, cut and scored to be 6″ x 6″. I cut the flower cardstock from Echo Park – Welcome Easter at 6″ x 1.75″ and Lawn Fawn – Watercolor Wishes Rainbow paper to 6″ x 4.5″. I applied double-side tape and adhered both pieces directly to the base. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Wilted Violet ink was used to ink around all of the edges of the base card. Using My Creative Time -Stitched Squares Inside and Out and my Cuttlebug, I die cut Momenta – Cardstock and inked around the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Fossilized Amber. 3M double-sided tape was applied to the back of this and it was popped up onto the base card.
Using PinkFresh Studios – Essentials: Blanket Stitched Square Die Set and my Cuttlebug, I die cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I stamped the main image onto this die cut and sentiment onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black. The image was coloured in with Copic Markers and then U-Line double-side tape was applied to the back of it. This was popped up over top of the yellow square.
I fussy cut around the sentiment and inked around the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Wilted Violet. I ran it through my Xyron Create a Sticker and applied it to the Momenta – Cardstock and fussy cut around it again. I applied Scrapbook Adhesives – 3D Foam Strips to the back of the sentiment layers and added it to the bottom right of the card. Lastly, I added in 3 DoodleBug Design Inc. – Sprinkles Spring Assortment to complete the card.
