Easter is around the Corner… Are you sending a Card or two?

Do you still send cards for Easter? I feel this tradition has almost completed faded out, apart from a few – including card makers. I love creating cards with that fresh spring feel to it. Spring is my favourite season after all. Below are few examples of how you can make a super quick and easy Easter card. I used just one die cut set for these. I also included die cut pieces on the inside as a sentiment too – but forgot to photograph those. D’oh.

This one is my favourite! Love the mix of yellow and teal, and the glittery washi tap strip on the left adds a bit of sparkle. Simply layering of the die cut, and background printed paper helps to bring them to our attention

Who doesn’t love a shaker card? These are fun to make and cute to receive. For that someone special, when you want to add a little bit more effort than normal, this is a great way making a card something that little bit more special.

Don’t have a lot of time, or a lot of cards to make? Keep it simple with one background – for this I choose a pink sparkly cardstock – added the die-cut, a few enamel dots then called this done!

I wanted to combine a bit of ink and stamping into this one, and I think this came out great to send to a younger recipient. I distress inked the card stock, cut out the centre with an oval die, then fussy cut the egg/chick, before adding a little stamping and sequins to finish off

We all make mistakes right? I thought I’d share this one – and how I rescued it. It was too cute for throw away and start again, so after making a mess of my stamping/embossing, I cut off the bottom , trimmed the green card stock to maintain a white border around the card and voila – card salvaged!
